A Hindu temple in Australia's Melbourne was attacked by Khalistan supporters and defaced with anti-India graffiti.

The walls of the prominent BAPS Swaminarayan temple in Melbourne's northern suburb of Mill Park were painted with anti-India and pro-Khalistan graffitis, The Australia Today reported.

Patel, a person who visits the temple every morning before going to work but did not reveal his first name fearing repercussions, told The Australia Today that he witnessed vandalised walls of the temples when he reached the temple on Thursday (12 January) morning.

“When I reached the temple today morning all walls were coloured with graffiti of Khalistani hatred towards Hindus," Patel was quoted in the report as saying.

According to the report, Khalistani goons recorded a video of their despicable act of vandalising the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir and later shared it on the social media.

Meanwhile, BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha Australia in a statement appealing for peace has added that they were “deeply saddened by the anti-India graffiti at the gates of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Mill Park, Melbourne, Australia by anti-social elements.”

"The BAPS temple in Mill Park, like all temples of BAPS worldwide, is an abode of peace, harmony, equality, selfless service, and universal Hindu values," the organisation said.
