Many temples in Canada were vandalized
Actually, Lakshmi Narayan Temple was vandalized on August 12 in Surrey, Canada. The main gate and doors of the temple were covered with posters. The posters at the entrance had the word “Wanted” written below the names and images of India’s ambassadors in Toronto and Vancouver as well as its High Commissioner in Ottawa.

Canada had made this allegation against India
