Melbourne: India has condemned the recent vandalism of three Hindu temples in Australia and writing on them that glorify anti-India terrorists.
Earlier this month, the Swaminarayan Temple in Melbourne, the historic Sri Shiva Vishnu Temple in Carom Downs in Victoria and the ISKCON temple in Melbourne were labelled anti-India by “anti-social elements”.
Reacting to this, the Indian High Commission in Canberra said in strong words, “This is dangerous.”
The Indian High Commission also said that these incidents were a clear attempt to sow hatred and division between the peaceful multi-faith and multi-cultural Indian-Australian community.
The High Commission highlighted that “pro-Khalistan elements are furthering their activities in Australia. Members of Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) and other terrorist organisations are actively aiding and abetting such cases.”
“It is expected that not only will the perpetrators be brought to justice, but appropriate action will also be taken to prevent further incidents,” the statement said.
