Hindu temple vandalised with hate message in America

Washington: A Hindu temple has been vandalised with hate speech in the US state of Washington, sending shock waves through the community in the area and prompting authorities to launch an investigation.

The incident happened when unidentified miscreants sprayed swastika and painted “get out” on one of the walls of the temple in the Seattle metropolitan area. It is one of the largest Hindu temples in the entire North West.

The Snohomish county sheriff’s department is investigating this case as malicious harassment. Top county officials visited the temple on Monday.

“This kind of things should not happen in the US. Who are you telling to get out? This is a nation of immigrants,” Nitya Niranjan, chairman of board of trustee of the Hindu temple and cultural centre, Bothell, Washington told PTI.

Niranjan said some kind of painting was sprayed on the outside wall of the temple a few years ago, But they did not bring it to the notice of the law enforcement authorities as nothing was written.
