    Confused vandals target Sikh temple

    Video available at above website.

    Confused vandals have sprayed anti-Muslim graffiti at a Sikh temple in Perth's northern suburbs overnight.

    The multi-million dollar temple, which has been under construction in Bennett Springs for more than two years and is due to be completed in February, was vandalised around 1.30am by two offenders who sprayed offensive messages.

    Two people were captured on CCTV about 1am this morning wearing dark clothing, their faces covered.

    One of them climbed onto the other’s shoulders to spray over the camera.

    The graffiti included swear words and offensive messages including "go home", "Arab f..ks" and "Aussie pride".

    Sikh Gurdwara Perth founding member Satjit Singh said it was disappointing that the temple was targeted.

    He said the vandals had obviously thought they were targeting an Islamic mosque. They did not understand the religious difference between Sikhs and Muslims.

    "This temple belongs to the Sikh community and we have no relation with any other religion," he said.

    "All Sikhs, wherever in the world they have settled, they are very faithful to the country where they settle."

    Damage to the building is going to cost $40,000 dollars to repair.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
