On my way to guitar class i came across police protection at all the churches i passed. i thought that perhaps thats because the Bajrang dal has been acting up in the past month. About an hour later i get a msg saying that there have been attacks on Churches in the coastal districts. I was at claude’s place, so we tuned into tv9 for the visuals. Milagres, Kodikal and Belthangadi churches have been vandalised as far as i know. Things are getting worse in Mangalore.
Conversion has never been a major issue in this region and as far as i know it never has taken plae here. Mangalore consists of catholics who have been here for ages.It used to be a peaceful town, presently in the midst of communal mess. Hope everything sorts out itself.
