Commenting on the horrible atrocities-massacres of population, burning of villages, capture of young males and females for sale as slaves, plunder of property-committed by the Portuguese in 1532 and 1549 on Hindus living in the coastal areas of Saurashtra, Colonel James Todd had observed: 'It would perhaps be fortunate for Christianity, if the historic muse in India were mute, as many have endeavoured to prove her to be, since atrocities like these are alone sufficient to have scared the Hindus from all association with her creed.' But contrary to his foreboding, Christianityy in India has been very fortunate indeed. The historic muse in India has not only remained mute about the character and doings of this diabolical creed, it has also laboured in the opposite direction of inventing sweet stories such as that Jesus was an avatar like Sri Rama and Sri Krishna, that Christianity was brought to India by St. Thomas long before it was introduced in Europe, that Christian missions have made many contributions to the languages and literature of India and rendered great humanities services to the poor and the downtrodden in this country, and that Christianity is a unique religion of love and peace, etc. The high honours heaped on Mother Teresa by the Hindu elite, symbolize the abject servility to which India has reduced herself vis-?-vis Christianity. ;;
