Mr. Golwalkar,

The persecution of Modern day Christians of India which is rampant at the hands of RSS and Bajrang Dal people, is a fact. To justify this, you shed light on the Hindu persecution done by the Portuguese clergy along with the Roman Catholic church during the middle ages. Agreed that the Inquisition was a blot on humanity, but it was during the Portuguese regime, done by the Portuguese Christians along with the Catholic Church of the middle ages, which had a political influence in Europe at that time. Being a Goan Catholic of Hindu Ancestry myself, I agree that whatever the Portuguese and the Roman Catholic Church had done to our ancestors is completely wrong and unjustifiable. It was a holocaust.

But, taking revenge on the present day Indian Christians is not justifiable, if that is your take on the RSS and Bajrang Dal's action. I feel that, as a human being first, you must condemn the actions of the RSS and Bajrang Dal, and do not highlight any of their random good deeds. Their bad deeds outnumber their good deeds.
