Anti-India graffiti on Swaminarayan temple; India raises issue with Canada


The BAPS Swaminarayan temple in Toronto was vandalised on Tuesday with anti-India slogans scribbled on the wall. The Indian High Commission condemned the incident and took up the issue with the Canadian authorities urging them to take prompt action on the culprits. Brampton South MP Sonia Sidhu expressed shock at the incident and tweeted, “We live in a multicultural and multi-faith community where everyone deserves to feel safe. Those responsible should be located to face the consequences of their actions.”

A video of the temple after defacement is doing the rounds on social media where Khalistani slogans can be seen on the walls.

Brampton mayor Patrick Brown expressed his disappointment over the vandalism. “This type of hate has no place in the GTA of Canada. Let’s hope those criminals responsible are brought to justice quickly,” he tweeted.
