April revolution celebration in Goa!

When I heard about this news, I was shocked.It is like Jews celebrating Nazis contributions to their society’,’Indians praising Nadhuram Godshe as a great leader’.This ‘Stab in the back’ approach of Goa University shows their patriotism and love for India.This act of Goa University only shows how hell bent they are in pampering the Portuguese.I have given the excerpts from the news with my emphasis here.

As the Goa University has planned three-day programme to celebrate the 35th anniversary of April revolution in Portugal, freedom fighters in this erstwhile Portuguese colony has condemned the act.

The freedom fighters have said that the glorification and celebration of the April revolution in Portugal, which bestowed democracy in that country, was unwanted. Portuguese have not done anything for India apart from Genocidal killings of Indians and trying to celebrate their April Revolution is nothing but traitorous act.

Goa University’s Portuguese Department in association with ‘Instituto Camoes’ in Panaji has planned three-day programme beginning from April 24 to commemorate the event. 

“Why should institution like Goa University get associated with celebrations of the things which happened in Portugal? Do we lack in national days? We have so many national days, which are forgotten by the university,” renowned freedom fighter and active member of All Goa Freedom Fighters’ Association, Naguesh Karmali, said. The McCaulay education has done a great harm to Indian Intellgentsia and they have actually become pseudo intelluctuals.It is no wonder, these people celebrating such events.

Karmali said that if Portuguese-sponsored institutions are holding the functions in Goa, let them have but not the institution like Goa University. 

Goa was liberated from the colonial rule in 1961 after a long freedom struggle. India is only country where the government is paying pensions for terrorists,erecting statues for traitors and glorifying tyranny rule of Mughals and Portuguese while downplaying Veer Shivaji’s contributions to freedom struggle and calling Bhagat Singh as terrorist.

“Do we celebrate birthday of British Queen? Or do we celebrate French Revolution? They had also ruled India. We don’t celebrate them because they are not our national days. Why should we pamper Portugal?” Karmali questioned. 

The Goa University has planned the celebration to commemorate April revolution, which is also called as the Carnation Revolution. 

According to historians, the event was a Left leaning military’s coup started on April 25, 1974 in Lisbon (Portugal). 

It changed the Portuguese regime from an authoritarian dictatorship to a democracy after two years of a transitional period characterised by social turmoil and power dispute between Left and Right wing political forces. It might have changed the Portuguese regime but not the peoples’ slavery mind under Portuguese rule.Even today Indians look up to west for their approval.Though these tyrants have gone long back from India, the modern day Indians still looking up to them.They seem to have forgotten the Portuguese inquisition.Nobody in their senses will ever imagine to do things like this.If these things are unchecked, they will surely celebrate Dec 13th as Afzal Guru’s day and congress chamchas,Antonia Maino,Puppet Mohan,Diaper Rahul,Suzanna Arundhati Roy will be very happy to do so!!



  1. Nathuram Godse was definitely a great patriot, no doubt about it. His great contributions to indian history should definitely be celebrated. MKG was a traitor and had to be brought
    down at the earliest.

  2. Please remember, it was Gandhiji who brought millinos of people together and fought the British.He was the sole reason for creating awareness among ordinary citizens of Bharat.He turned the ordinary citizens into brave soldiers.Soldiers who did not want to adopt peaceful means,joined Netaji whose contribution to our freedom is also unquestionable.However it was Gandhiji and his yatras,Satyagrahas,Satsangs widely appealed to people of India.Awareness can root out and destroy anything with very little force.It was only the mass awareness among people and their co-operation for the cause of freedom forced British to leave India.

  3. saw your comment … naive is how i would describe it frankly.

    See if this makes sense .. .
    Tht’s exactly the reason why britishers glorified mkg, to reduce their own casualties. they infact wanted more and more people to follow him.
    Infact mkg only delayed freedom, and whatever blackmailing tactics ( read bhook hartals ) he employed were to get his work done from his dear ones ( Read hindus ),
    the muslims never paid any heed to his
    acrobatics, and he tried in vain to gain over their confidence were at the cost of hindus — by subduing them. Tht’s why he got killed as people got pissed off being blackmailed and
    graded lower to muslims who were slautering hindus like sheep. In his bid to win over muslims he even made parayans of quran in temples!
    Thts why he should be righteously called the Father Of muslim appeasement! Thts the policy the congress is still following till date and is only accelerating
    India’s demise. Mark my words, you won’t have to wait long to see it turn true, infact its already happening.

    it was because of him that nehru who had no majority support in congress became the prime minister and bungled up kashmir issue which
    we are still bleeding with..badly.

    Well, you can always have your views, but facts cannot be changed.All the best.

  5. Hi Vinod
    I respect your views.My answer: You cannot compare Gandhiji’s act with Obama’s.These two are entirely different situtations in different time periods.Moreover Gandhiji did not do any acrobatics to appease.He sincerely tried to bridge the gap between the two communities.Hindus are known for their tolerance and softness.Hinduism is all pervading and respects all the paths whether it is Islam or Christianity.Parayans of Quran in temples by Gandhiji was one such act.This happened in the time of partition.We cannot blame anyone for what he done for the first time.But if it is repeated, then we need to take affirmative action against those who create trouble.We cannot tolerate the intolerance attitude of others.Gandhiji if alive today might have taken a different stand after seeing these many terrorist attacks in our soil.A true Hindu,in my opinion, will not hesitate to reach out and at the same will not be naive enough to believe the radicals without any affirmative action from them to counter terrorism atleast.

  6. @Vinod:- So, you think Nathuram Godse should be on Indian Currency notes!? !
    you are going overboard in criticizing Gandhiji.

    Gandhiji was definitely clear on conversions related issues:-

    Do you undermine importance of his emphasis for Swadeshi Khadi and his protest against salt? Were they not important to unite people and make them speak up for the country?

    What went wrong probably was that Gandhiji was a reformer and not ruler. A reformer can connect and inspire people, however a ruler needs to have better administrative skills.
    Gandhiji lived every moment of his life with full sincerity to all his capacity. This is best he could have done.

    Yes, definitely it was a mistake on his part to appoint Nehru as PM. India would have been different if Sardar Patel had come up as a PM and Gandhiji was not killed.
    Nathuram Godse was a criminal. You cannot eliminate a thought by killing a person. If not Gandhiji, someone else would have done similar work which he did that.

    Check the youtube video on “Sri Sri addresses nobel prize winners”. It has another mention of a mistake by Gandhiji as a mediator.

    India did not need Britishers to know the values of Gandhiji. If Gandhiji were to be wrong, people wouldn’t have followed him in the padayatras.

  7. Abhay, Sabari hasn’t published my comments. And yes, MKg doesn’t deserve a square cm. of space on indian currency.
