Goa Church has termed Director general of police B S Bassi’s statement likening casinos to Temples and Churches as "blasphemous."

"I was very much shocked to see the statement coming from the person from that standing, who is supposed to be the guardian of law and order situation," Father Francisco Caldeira, Director of the Diocesan Centre for Social Communications Media of the archdiocese of Goa and Daman, said.

"It is a blasphemous statement to compare casino with temples and churches," Fr Caldeira, who is also a spokesman for Archbishop of Goa and Daman, said.

He said that Bassi does not understand what religion is and what casino is.
