We have requested for speedy investigation against the culprits and measures to prevent such incidents in future. The matter has also been taken up with the Australian Government and we look forward to it.
Two incidents happened in a week
Let me tell you, Khalistani supporters allegedly ransacked a temple in Australia’s Victoria state. Not only this, anti-India artifacts have also been made in the temple. Significantly, this was such an incident within a week when a Hindu temple was attacked in Australia. Earlier on January 12, Swaminarayan Temple in Melbourne was targeted by anti-social elements. Even then anti-India paintings were made on the temple. BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha Australia, the governing body of the temple, issued a statement condemning the incident.
According to local media reports there, the historic Shri Shiv Vishnu Temple in Carrom Downs, Victoria was vandalized on Monday. Khalistani supporters carried out the attack when devotees went for darshan during the three-day ‘Thai Pongal’ festival celebrated by the Tamil Hindu community.
