Beginning 2023, Hindu temples in Australia have seen a spurt in vandal attacks by Khalistani elements defacing the walls with anti-India slogans and graffiti.
Days after Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese assured to curb anti-India elements in the country, the Indian consulate in Brisbane was forced to close down on Wednesday by Khalistan supporters, reported The Australia Today.
“Slogans were raised against Hindus calling them supremacists with Khalistan Zindabad,” said The Australia Today at the Indian consulate located on Swann Road in the Taringa suburb of Brisbane.
The Queensland police said it was an unauthorised gathering.
Albanese on March 11 gave assurances that Australia won’t tolerate any extreme actions and attacks that took place in religious buildings, and that there is no place for such action against Hindu temples while addressing a press conference in New Delhi.
