The Invasion of Goa, Daman & Diu was Illegal and illegitimate

The invasion of the Portuguese territories of Goa, Damão and Diu, in 1961 by Indian troops, was “illegal, illegitimate and against the Human Rights”, general Carlos Azeredo said to the Lusa.

“It was an illegal, absolutely illegitimate attack and against the Human Rights. What there it goes there goes, but this is a historical truth, and the truth is not twisted”, affirmed Carlos Azeredo, in interview to the Lusa agency, in the Port, where it lives.

Carlos Azeredo, then with 31 years, was in Goa as official of linking of the commander of the Policy of the State of India (PEI, assignment given to the Portuguese Army in India), general Vassalo and Silva, when 50 a thousand troops of the Indiana Union had invaded the Portuguese State of India, to the dusk of 17 of December of 1961.

“They had ones automatic weapons and we had weapons of 1892 vintage which were completely obsolete. They needed to loaded after each shot. We did not have any aerial means to attack their planes. This was the first time that we did not have an airplane in our command”, remembered Carlos Azeredo.

The attack was made by land, with armored cars of combat, for air, with innumerable fighter aircraft and bombers, and from sea, with some warships. The Portuguese troops had still rebuffed the first attack, but the resistance lasted no more than two days . . . . .

COMMENT: To the victor go the spoils of war. Goem has been taken over by Bharat mata. Whether right or wrong, the invasion by the army of Hind was victorious and has once again changed the fate and face of amchem bhangarachem Goem. For better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, in freedom and in servitude ... Viva! Viva!! Viva Goem!!!
