Prime Minister Modi said the issue was raised with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese during their bilateral meeting at Hyderabad House. At least 3 Melbourne temples were targeted by Khalistan supporters in January. Khalistan supporters vandalized premises and wrote anti-Indian slogans on temple walls and also vandalized idols.
The victims of the latest attack were officials at the Sri Lakshmi Narayan Temple in the Brisbane suburb of Burbank. The walls of the Shri Lakshmi Narayan Temple have been defaced with anti-Indian and anti-Hindu graffiti. All of this was allegedly done by Khalistan militants.
Meanwhile, pro-Khalistan militants targeted three temples in the Melbourne area in January, sparking tension among Indian expats. The BAPS Shree Swaminarayan temple in Melbourne’s Mill Park was first vandalized on January 12, the Shree Shiv Vishnu temple in Carrom Downs was vandalized on January 16 and the wall of the ISKCON temple in Melbourne was vandalized on January 23 with “Khalistan Zindabad” was defaced with graffiti.
The Khalistan separatists had announced whether Punjab should remain part of India or not? After the announcement of the holding of a referendum on this subject, the tension within the Indian diaspora had further increased. A decision that irritated members of the Indian diaspora.
On the day of the referendum, members of the Indian diaspora decided to protest the demand peacefully. But when they gathered in Federation Square in Melbourne on January 29, they were attacked by Khalistan supporters.
