It is now 40 long days that the decomposed body of our dear friend Fr. Bismarque Dias is languishing in the morgue of the Goa Medical College at Bambolim. The investigation is on into the cause and reasons of his sudden death and must continue till the truth is unraveled. But with the viscera report having been received, his mortal remains are not required for any further examination. It therefore now has to be a priority that Fr Bismarque Dias who so selflessly, dedicatedly and tirelessly toiled for Goa is given a fitting hero’s farewell and laid to rest with all due respect to the great departed soul.
Christmas is around the corner and it is further distressing that now for no reason the body of our great warrior Fr Bismarque Dias remains consigned to that very unhygienic and regularly malfunctioned morgue which is also infested with a huge brigade of rats and other rodents.
Fr Bismarque Dias’s last rites cannot wait any longer. God bless the great Goan soldier who while alive suffered working extremely incessantly for Goa and is still after death enduring the distress.
