Australia: Shree Laxmi Narayan Temple in Brisbane vandalised

Another incident of vandalism of a Hindu temple has come to the fore in Australia. On Saturday, March 4, Shree Laxmi Narayan Temple in Brisbane’s Burbank suburb was vandalised with anti-Hindu and anti-India graffiti defacing its walls. According to local media reports, the vandalism was carried out by pro-Khalistani supporters. However, some other media reports suggest that the Khalistani extremists blamed the Indian National Congress party for the defacing of the temple’s boundary wall.

The miscreants wrote anti-Hindu, anti-India and pro-Khalistani slogans on the walls near the temple during the vandalization.

The vandalism was noticed when devotees came for their morning prayers on Saturday morning.

A resident, Ramesh Kumar, who lives near the temple, told The Australia Today: “I am aware of what has happened at Melbourne Hindu Temples, but facing this hate ourselves is a very distressing experience.”

The Australia Today spoke to Temple President Satinder Shukla who said: “Temple priest and devotees called this morning and notified me about the vandalism on the boundary wall of our temple.”

Meanwhile, Sarah Gates, who is the Director of Hindu Human Rights told the local media house, “This latest hate crime is a pattern of Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) globally, clearly attempting to terrorise Australian Hindus. Coupled with a barrage of propaganda, illegal signs, and cyberbullying, the organisation intends to present all-pervasive threats, fear, and intimidation.”
