Is Cunha Aragão notable?[edit]

Cunha Aragão, presumably António da Cunha Aragão, is listed (red link) in the info box as a commander and leader. There is no article on him under either name in either the English or Portugese wikipedia.

As far as I can tell he was the final captain of NRP Afonso de Albuquerque, the primary (only) Portugese military vessel at the battle. He is not mentioned at all in the Portugese language article but, unfortunately, that is little more than a stub so his omission means little.

Should he really be listed in the info box? If so Is there enough information on him in the "Naval battle at Mormugão harbour" section to create a stub article on him?

Changing the Article 'Annexation of Goa' to the "Liberation of Goa'[edit]

Unless the change is made the article itself is inherently biased towards the occupying Portuguese forces, thereby qualifying it as a constructive change. Goa has and will always be an integral part of India, and the article itself reflects this through the sections detailing the liberation and independence movements that occurred both before, during, and after the necessary military action undertaken by the Indian Forces. This was indisputably a liberation movement, there is nothing more to add. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.43.29.24 (talk) 01:59, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Using the term "Liberation" is clearly pov towards the Indian point of view, and most English language sources outside of India do not use that term in describing the conflict. In fact there are several scholarly publications on international law which cite the Indian invasion and annexation of Portuguese India as one of the more recent examples of acquisition by conquest, given that Portugal had governed the territory for more than 400 years, well before India declared independence in 1947.XavierGreen (talk) 20:46, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
The word 'liberation' is in the point of view of India as well as the countries who had to bear the scrouge of colonialism. The point of view of all colonialists(most of the western world) it would be a conquest, disregarding the fact that they were very much away from their home committing autocracies. Regarding the governing of territory for 400 years before the Independence of India, the British ruled India for about 200 years, and if Azad Hind Fauj would've liberated India, it would have been liberation, not annexation of India by Azad Hind Fauj. By definition, taking back one's own is not annexation. Aditya8993 (talk) 06:33, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Annexation of Portuguese IndiaAnnexation of Goa – As per WP:COMMONNAMEFilpro (talk) 19:44, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

This is a contested technical request (permalink). Steel1943 (talk) 20:59, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
*Contest. Portugese India, while sometimes known as Goa, also included other areas. I'm not necessarily opposed to the move, but I do think that it should be discussed. Ebonelm (talk) 20:28, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
@Filpro: This request has been moved to full discussion. Steel1943 (talk) 20:59, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
The restructuring, reordering and additional writing required to turn the redirect Annexation of Goa into a separate article alongside Portuguese India, Annexation of Portuguese India and Annexation of Dadra and Nagar Haveli would be welcome, but unless someone knowledgeable with these subjects volunteers to undertake the assignment, this article, as presently constituted, is still only about the Annexation of Goa, rather the Annexation of entire Portuguese India. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 19:25, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Support: The article is almost entirely about what constitutes present day Goa. Annexation of Goa would be a better name. Pratyush (talk) 10:42, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Time to tune[edit]

There is one quote: "whatever the pious statements made from time to tune by its leaders" that is copied correctly from the cited PDF. However, isn't "tune" supposed to mean "time"? But since the source says tune, how can we correct this?--37.201.28.33 (talk) 16:01, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
