Khalistanis threaten to attack Laxmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey; Canadian MP Chandra Arya reacts
A video is going viral in which Khalistani in Canada announced that they will take their demonstration to Laxmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey on Sunday, November 26, 2023.-
Pro-Khalistan protestors recently threatened to attack the Hindu temple Laxmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey, Canada. Canadian MP Chandra Arya took to his official X handle and expressed his worry over the possible desecration that can take place inside the sacred Laxmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey. A video is going viral in which Khalistani in Canada announced that they will take their demonstration to Laxmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey on Sunday, November 26, 2023.
In the viral video, a Khalistan supporter can be heard saying, "Just like this on the coming Sunday at the Laxmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey, inside it too, we will carry out a demonstration like this. There too they (Indians) will be held accountable."
Reacting to this Canadian MP Chandra Arya 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 want 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. 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."
It is worth mentioning that it is not the first time that a threat has been made to attack a Hindu temple. Khalistani slogans were written near many temples in Canada and many temples were also vandalized. The Indian government has also talked to the Canadian government regarding such incidents in Canada, but no action was taken.
A few days back, a Sikh youth confronted and clashed with Khalistanis chanting 'anti-India' slogans outside a Gurudwara in Canada. Continuously listening to the anti-India slogans, a Sikh youth who was along with an elderly man, apparently his father, tried to pick up the Tricolour thrown on the road.
Angry after listening anti-India slogans, the Sikh youth confronted and asks the Khalistani, "Don't you have any other work?" The Sikh youth then tried to pick the Tricolour and this irked the Pro Khalistani protestors. The Sikh youth was pushed by the Khalistani protestor. An elderly man who was with the youth came in between. Following that the Khalistanis started to say that the Sikh youth should be ashamed by chanting, "Lakh Laanat Hai Twade Te".
