Toronto: Anti-India slogans were written on the walls of a Hindu temple in Canada by Khalistani extremists to hurt religious sentiments. The accused have demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi be declared a dictator. Along with this, slogans on the wall of the temple were written describing Bhindranwale as a martyr.
The Indian mission in Canada condemned the incident and urged the Canadian authorities to take swift action against the perpetrators. The incident took place on February 13 at a Ram temple in Mississauga. However, the time of the incident is not known.
“We strongly condemn the defacing of Ram Mandir in Missisauga with anti-India graffiti. We have requested Canadian authorities to investigate the incident and take prompt action on perpetrators,” The Consulate General of India in Toronto wrote in a tweet.
“The walls of the Shri Ram Temple in Mississauga, Ontario were defiled at night. We are deeply disturbed by this incident and we are working with the appropriate law enforcement authority on this matter.”
Pro-Khalistani slogans and anti-India slogans have been written on the walls of the temple. This is not the first time that anti-India slogans have been written on the wall of a temple in Canada.
In January, anti-India slogans were found written on the wall of a temple in Canada, sparking outrage among the Indian community. In September last year, slogans by “Canadian Khalistani extremists” were written on the walls of the Swaminarayan Temple in Toronto.
