Chandra Arya on Monday shared a purported video of Pro Khalistsupporters in Surrey claiming they want to create trouble at the Hindu Laxmi Narayan Mandir there.
Along with the video that he shared on social media platform X, the Canadian member of parliament, Arya, further called on the Canadian authorities to take action and step in.
He wrote, «Last week, Khalistan supporters verbally abused a Sikh family outside a Sikh Gurdwara in Surrey, BC, according to some reports. Now it appears the same Khalistan group wants to create trouble at the Hindu Laxmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey.»
«All these are being done in the name of freedom of speech and expression.
Like a broken record, I am again asking Canadian authorities to step in and take action,» he added.
Underscoring that Hindu temples have remained targets for attacks over the past years, Arya noted by saying, «Hindu temples have been attacked many times during the last couple of years. Hate crimes are being committed against Hindu-Canadians.»
«Allowing these things to continue to be done openly and publicly is not acceptable,» he said.
A Hindu temple was vandalised in Canada by extremist elements with Khalistan referendum posters in August this year.
The poster on the temple gate referred to and also had the picture of Khalistan Tiger Force chief and designated terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar, who was killed in June this year.
This is not the first such attack on a Hindu temple in Canada; multiple such incidents have been carried out by Khalistani extremists.
