Ram Temple defaced with anti-India graffiti in Canada, MP Chandra Arya condemns

Toronto: India-born Canadian Member of Parliament Chandra Arya has condemned the defacing of a Hindu temple in Ontario's Mississauga city with anti-India graffiti and asked authorities to take action.

"It is with pain and anguish I note that the Ram Mandir, a Hindu temple in Mississauga has become the latest target of hate crime. Authorities in Canada need to seriously look into the activities of anti-Hindu & anti-India groups and take action now," he tweeted.

The Minister also shared a video of his statement made over the issue on the floor of the Parliament.

A Ram Temple (Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Rama) was recently defaced with anti-India and pro-Khalistan graffiti.

The slogans spray-painted in the back of the Shri Ram Mandir in the area included those attacking India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and describing the founder of the separatist Khalistan movement, Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, as a ‘martyr’, reports Hindustan Times.

According to reports, this is the fourth such incident which has happened in Canada in the past eight months.

India demands action:

The Indian Consulate in Toronto has asked the country's government to start investigating the incident.

"We strongly condemn the defacing of Ram Mandir in Missisauga with anti-India graffiti. We have requested Canadian authorities to investigate the incident and take prompt action on perpetrators," the Indian Consulate in Toronto tweeted.
