The video Fr Conceicao D’Silva cursing former chief minister Manohar Parrikar has created furore among Goa’s Christian community.

Most of the Christian brothers and sisters have disapproved his statement that Parrikar dying of cancer was a punishment by Almighty God.

Bishop’s House has also taken serious note of it while Bharatiya Janata Party has filed a complaint before the Election Commission of India.

Fr Conceicao D’Silva is a parish priest at Our Lady of Snows Church at Raia in Salcete.

This is the sermon he delivered from the pulpit. Watch it to know. 

While the video went viral on social media, the Panaji mandal of BJP immediately filed a complaint before the local electoral office, stating that this will create communal tension.

According to our information, Bishop summoned Fr Conceicao on Monday morning and warned him not to indulge in such acts.

The Bishop has also issued a statement objecting to such kind of attitude.

The provocative statements of Fr Conceicao however were deplored by his own Christian community.

They totally disapprove of such hate language and feel that Church platforms should not be used for such kind of election propaganda.

AAP however feels it’s not a major issue.
