Temple desecrated in Goa a day after Holy Cross was desecrated

A Temple in the South Goan town of Curchorem was desecrated a day after similar incident was reported about Holy Cross at two places in the state.

The Kal Mharu Devasthan Ghumti is believed to have been desecrated by miscreants in the wee hours between Sunday and Monday. The damage was noticed by a local woman who had gone to light a lamp at the temple. According to a local panchayat member Sushant Naik, a similar incident had happened at the same temple three years back.

Naik has called this incident as a cowardly act of a few anti-social elements with the intention to disturb the peace in the area and urged the police to nab the vandals.

The president of the temple though has decided not to file a police complaint and the police inspector Shivram Vaigankar also stated that nobody had approached the police station to lodge a complain till date.

This incident follows similar desecration of a Holy Cross in two areas of the Salcete subdivision, also in South Goa. The crosses desecrated in St. Jose de Areal and Gudi Paroda were reported by the locals on Sunday morning. This reportedly led to people gathering at the St. Jose de Areal, while there was no such picketing at Gudi Paroda where only the platform was damaged.

The police were apparently patrolling the area near the St. Jose de Areal till 6 AM on Sunday so authorities believed that the desecration only happened sometime later. A similar incident was also reported recently from Chandor in South Goa but the culprit was found to be a man with mental health issues. This incident had resulted in police starting a patrol in similar areas.

The report regarding the desecration of the crosses also quoted the Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar who has reportedly asked the Director General of Police to track down the culprits and intensify police patrolling.
