Goa: Cross vandalised at Aldona

I really think that by highlighting such reports so prominently, the Herald (in particular... but other papers also have their own thing going when it comes to dealing with communalism in Goa) is playing into the hands of those fanatics who want to divide Goan society on communal lines.

It may be good for circulation, but certainly not good for Goa. Maybe it might be better to have a fact-finding committee, to find out the issues involved, what might have been the provocation, areas of possible tension, and where there is scope for bridge-building (among communities) in Aldona.
