A Hindu temple in Canada was seen painted with pro-Khalistani slogans and anti-India graffiti, prompting India to condemn the incident and urge Canadian authorities to take swift action against the perpetrators.
The latest incident took place at a Ram Mandir in Mississauga on February 13. The time of the incident is, however, not known, PTI reported.
“We strongly condemn the defacing of Ram Mandir in Mississauga with anti-India graffiti. We have requested Canadian authorities to investigate the incident and take prompt action on perpetrators,” India’s Consulate in Toronto tweeted on Tuesday.
“Vandalism occurred overnight (February 13th) at the Shri Ram Mandir in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. We at the Ram Mandir are very disturbed by this occurrence and we are working with the appropriate law enforcement authority on this matter,” the Facebook page of the temple said.
The walls of the temple was painted with pro-Khalistani slogans and anti-India graffiti. This is not the first time that a Hindu Temple in Canada was defaced with anti-India graffiti.
In January, a Hindu Temple in Brampton Canada was painted anti-India messages, followed by BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in September.
