Original Research/POV para?[edit]

"The fact that these Catholics who fled the Inquisition did not abandon their Christian faith testifies to the fact that they simply wanted to observe their traditional Hindu customs in conjunction with new found Catholic practices as well." Above paragraph is either an original reasearch or POV statement. I was not able to read the reference provided as website has been moved. In any case, "non-converting" may not mean they wanted to remain Christians but it has more to do with the fact that there was no option to convert back to "Hinduism". Conversion to Hinduism is very recent (relatively) phenomenon. Request to remove/significantly rephrase the above para.

Your claim that conversion to Hinduism is a recent phenomenon is false. Conversions of previously non-Hindu populations to Hinduism have occurred throughout Indian history. The most notable example I can give is that of Bali, Indonesia. Hindu traders from India brought Hinduism to Indonesia beginning almost two thousand years ago. While Islam later became the predominant religion in Indonesia, the majority of the population in the island of Bali still remains Hindu. How did these Indonesians become Hindu if not through conversion? Lklusener (talk) 01:41, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Actually, the info is neither POV nor original research. It is the conclusion of historian Severine Silva. Here is the link so you can check it out for yourself. Joyson Noel Holla at me! 08:54, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Voltaire's quote[edit]

I think it may be a problem concerning the reference to Voltarie's quote at the begining of the entry (ref 5). I checked the french original (http://books.google.com/books?id=1C4HAAAAQAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=Lettres+sur+l%27origine+des+sciences+et+sur+celle+des+peuples+de+l%27Asie#v=onepage&q=&f=false) and didnt find it. Azevgui (talk) 19:49, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

I have removed the reference and the section it supported. --Deepak D'Souza (talk) 20:38, 31 October 2009 (UTC)
Voltaire original quote about Goan Inquisition, Goa est malheureusement célèbre par son inquisition , également contraire à l'humanité et au commerce. Les moines portugais firent accroire que le peuple adorait le diable , et ce sont eux qui l'ont servi.

Regarding this revert:[1]. It had already been discussed in the past[2]. If you wish to discuss it further you are welcome but I really find the information incredulos. As for your recent additions, I will take some time to go through them before I comment. --Deepak D'Souza (talk) 05:05, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

64 were burned in effigy[edit]

Who on earth has been looking after his article? Please read up and see what "burned in effigy" means, they most certainly did not do this in the dark ages. Darkness Shines (talk) 19:20, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

But the subject of PERSECUTION of Jews is very important. Please Help in finding source for this. THANK YOU.--Clapkidaq (talk) 17:16, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

Please do not use all caps, especially in section titles, would you mind if I fixed that? Darkness Shines (talk) 17:18, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
