*FR. BISMARQUE’S BODY -*
*A CHILLING REMINDER*
While writing these disturbing few lines on 11th October, 2016 late
evening, the sky was crying and the streets were full of tears, even bolts
of lightning and thunder could be heard and felt, probably the last rains
were bidding goodbye to the monsoons. Then there was complete silence. But
a stark reminder, recalled that Fr. Bismarque, a true champion of the
preservation of Goa’s environment has still not got his last goodbye.
The chilling fact is that while his body remains in the morgue, his
murderers are free though not at peace and the people of Goa should
consider this tragedy as a clarion call for defeating the forces that
silenced our guardian, mentor, foot soldier and custodian, that made him
the sacrificial lamb and extinguish those politicians’ smouldering fires
that should be doused so as to make his noble soul shine through the dark
firmament of environmental degradation, that Fr. Bismarque gave his life
for, to save Goa from.
The people of Goa should not be idle by-standers but act by casting their
votes against the corrupt politicians who colluded with law-enforcing
agencies to deceive Goans into thinking that he died of unforced drowning.
Let every true Goan show his and her worth by voting out the politicians
who ignored seeking justice for Fr. Bismarque and his family. May Fr.
Bismarque’s soul rest in eternal peace.
