THIRD HINDU TEMPLE DEfaced with anti-India graffiti in Melbourne, Australia

World News

Following the vandalism of the Shri Shiva Vishnu Temple in Carrum Downs, anti-India graffiti was daubed on a third Hindu temple on Monday in Melbourne’s Albert Park, according to The Australia Today.

In the wee hours of Monday morning, the management of Melbourne’s International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) temple, commonly known as the Hare Krishna Temple, discovered anti-Indian graffiti on the temple walls.

Bhakta Das, the director of communication for the ISKCON temple, said in an interview with The Australia Today that they had reported the incident to Victoria Police because they were “shocked” by the lack of respect for the house of worship.

With this clear lack of care for the house of worship, Das remarked, “We are startled and angry.”

According to the news report, IT expert and devotee of the ISKCON temple Shivesh Pandey claimed Victoria Police had failed to take any action against those pursuing a “hate-filled agenda” against the Hindu community.

Shivesh Pandey was reported in The Australia Today as saying, “In the last two weeks, Victoria Police has failed to take any serious action against the persons who are running their hate-filled agenda against the peaceful Hindu community.

According to the news report, the attack on the ISKCON Temple occurred two days after Victorian representatives of various faiths met urgently with the Victorian Multicultural Commission. In a statement, the Victorian Multicultural Commission denounced the destruction of Hindu temples in Mill Park and Carrum Downes.

Earlier, anti-Hindu graffiti was written on the Shri Shiva Vishnu Temple in Australia’s Carrum Downs. The incident was discovered on January 16 when temple visitors arrived for “darshan” during the three-day “Thai Pongal” holiday being observed by the Tamil Hindu community in Australia.

Anti-Indian elements vandalised the BAPS Swaminarayan Temple on January 12 in Melbourne’s Mill Park neighbourhood, according to a story in The Australia Today. Anti-Indian sentiments were inscribed on the temple’s walls.

Patel, a bystander who did not want to provide his first name to The Australia Today, said how he visited the site on Thursday and saw the temple’s walls had been vandalised.

When I arrived at the temple this morning, all of the walls were covered in graffiti depicting Khalistani animosity toward Hindus. Patel was quoted in the Australia Today.

He said, “I am outraged, terrified, and appalled by the brazen exhibition of religious intolerance by Khalistan advocates towards the innocent Hindu population.”

BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir expressed their “deep sadness and outrage” at these acts of vandalism and hatred in a statement to The Australia Today. They have continued to be dedicated to “peaceful coexistence and dialogue to all faiths,” according to the statement.
