On April 27th, 2021, a Hindu temple in Melbourne, Australia was vandalized, with anti-India hate messages scrawled on its walls. Police were called after worshippers discovered the damage, which included broken idols, glass and furniture. The graffiti included messages such as “Go back to India” and “F**k India”. Police are investigating the incident as a “hate crime” and are appealing to the public for information. The attack follows similar incidents in Sydney, where two Hindu temples were vandalized earlier in the month. The latest attack has caused fear and distress in the Hindu community and has sparked outrage on social media.
