Goa’s very down to earth and noted Konkani writer Damodar Mauzo whom I
have personally known for decades has been a prolific and very outspoken in
all that he writes and speaks.

It is disturbing that there is reportedly a threat to the life of this very
humble Soul. Damodar Mauzo would be better advised not to depend on the
police security given to him by the BJP government as the saffron brigade
is solely responsible for the growing intimidation and intolerance across
the country ever since Narendra Modi came to power in May 2014.

We are battling through very dark and turbulent times with the so-called
world’s largest democracy now in deep peril. Unless these hooligans are
tracked down, it would only further embolden them to stifle the voices of
dissent. Nobody should be allowed to suppress our right to express the
thoughts we have.

While we rally behind our great Goan Damodar Mauzo, let us remain committed
to this struggle for ensuring that our great country regains its democratic
and secular fabric.

We should always be guided by those words of the great French intellectual
Voltaire "I do not agree with you. But I shall give up my life for your
right to say what you wish"
