Toronto: An anti-India and pro-Khalistan graffiti was painted at a prominent Hindu temple in the British Columbia province of Canada ahead of the Khalistan Referendum.
The outer walls of Shree Mata Bhameshwari Durga Society Mandir in Surrey were spray painted on Thursday with slogans reading, “Punjab is not India” and “Modi is a terrorist”.
The development comes just ahead of a Khalistan Referendum event, scheduled for September 10, and announcements from Sikh representative organization spearheading the Khalistan Movement, Sikhs For Justice (SFJ), to “lock down” India’s Consulate in Vancouver.
Despite the Narendra Modi-led Indian government’s attempts to contain the Khalistan Movement, an anti-India campaign continues in Canada with pro-Khalistani graffiti and posters across the country.
Last month, anti-India and pro-Khalistan posters were found pasted on the front and rear walls of the Lakshmi Narayan Mandir in Surrey.
Earlier, anti-India and pro-Khalistan graffiti were painted on the walls of the Swaminarayan temple in Ontario and the Gauri Shankar temple in Brampton in April and January.
