Lies Can Become Truth, If We Let Them - By Rosario F. Rodrigues
In the book, ‘The Goa Inquisition’ 1998 authored by Anant Kabka Priolkar; the Author states following lines in the Introduction of his book that “The records of the Inquisition should have formed the most important source of information for writing an account of its working. Unfortunately, they are not available either in Goa or in Portugal and there is reason to believe that they were destroyed”.
 
Earlier the Author said that “On the other hand, the story of the Inquisition is a dismal record of callousness and cruelty, tyranny and injustice, espionage and blackmail, avarice and corruption, repression of thought and culture and promotion of obscurantism and an Indian writer who undertakes to tell it can easily be accused of being inspired by ulterior motives”. IS IT NOT A PURE LIE AND A BIAS STATEMENT or NOT KNOWINGLY recorded in a history book that a number of well-known Goan historians depended upon their work based on Priolkar’s subordinate and inferior sources to indirectly disparage and damn the Catholics about the past?
 
The elite group Naques were the supporters of the Inquisition to run their business at the butcher shop at the Inquisition site, and now if anyone parks a meat-carrying vehicle near the temple it is the communal approach. 
 
Present publication by Dr. Allan Machado (Prabhu) EXPOSED the biased mind of A. K. Priolkar? Or Priolkar was not known that his major sources were from PROTESTANT’S propaganda of the time was for British to progress in India against Catholic Portugal? Words from the mouth of the wise are gracious, but fools are consumed by their own lips. (Ecclesiastes 10:12)
 
The Author and Speaker Shefali Vaidya, a Fellow-Ananta Leadership Program Consumed pure lies and spread hatred against Catholics in India based on Priolkar’s narratives. The TRUTH PREVAILS; Inquisitors recorded every case and preserved all the documents in a secret room; all these inquisition records are now available at Lisbon’s ‘Archivo Nacional Torre do Tombo’, if you can afford to spend some amount get them on your Desktop from ‘Global Archive'; you may get free access at Library. “LIES CAN BECOME TRUTH, IF WE LET THEM”.

The first edition of Priolkar's anti-Catholic propaganda was released in 1961. Alan Machado is too generous to Anant Priolkar because Priolkar was a "fellow Bamonn":

Machado claims, "I’m sure Priolkar would have changed his tone if he had access to the vast primary archival resource being digitized and posted online today." I disagree with this statement. Anant Kakba Priolkar was also a Maharashtrawadi moron who believed that Konkani was a dialect of Marathi, in spite of being presented repeatedly with evidence about Konkani being a separate language by Shenoi Goembab during his lifetime. If Priolkar couldn't be convinced by facts about the Konkani language, then I doubt that Priolkar could be convinced by facts about the Goa Inquisition. In addition, Priolkar actively promoted the Merger of Goa with Maharashtra. Fortunately for Goans, Priolkar died in 1973 and so he lived long enough to see his Merger dreams turned into ashes by the Opinion Poll of 1967.
