PM Modi raises the issue of temple attacks with Anthony Albanese, and said the Australian PM assures the safety of the Indian community

PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has assured him that the safety and well-being of the Indian community in Australia is a priority.

“In recent weeks, there has been a steady stream of reports of temple attacks in Australia. It is understandable that such news would worry Indians. “I raised these concerns with Prime Minister Albanese, who assured me that the safety of the Indian community is a top priority for him,” PM Modi said during the India-Australia: Exchange of Agreements and Press Statements on Friday.

“On this subject, our teams will be in regular touch and will cooperate as best we can,” the PM said alongside Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese. It is critical to address such challenges and ensure global well-being.”

According to the Prime Minister, the Indian diaspora is now Australia’s second-largest immigrant community. “This Indian community contributes significantly to the society and economy of Australia,” the Prime Minister said.

PM Modi thanked the Australian Prime Minister for his country’s assistance during India’s G20 presidency.

PM Modi stated that he will have the opportunity to welcome the Australian Prime Minister to India again at the G20 Summit in September.

“Once again, a very warm welcome to the Prime Minister in India. “I am confident that his visit will provide new momentum and momentum to our relations,” the Prime Minister said.

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese arrived in Ahmedabad on Wednesday for a state visit to India.

Albanese, who is in India from March 8 to 11, was greeted by Gujarat Chief Minister Patel.

The Indian High Commission in Canberra recently condemned the “deeply disturbing” vandalism of three Hindu temples in Melbourne and asked the Australian Government to ensure the safety and security of members of the Indian community and their properties in the country.

The ISKCON Hare Krishna Temple in Melbourne’s Albert Park was vandalised in January. On January 16, the Shri Shiva Vishnu Temple in Carrum Downs was vandalised, and on January 12, the BAPS Swaminarayan Temple in Mill Park was vandalised.

“The High Commission of India strongly condemns the deeply disturbing incidents of vandalisation, including of three Hindu temples in Melbourne in recent weeks. The frequency and impunity with which the vandals appear to be operating, as well as the graffiti that includes glorification of anti-Indian terrorists, are concerning,” read a release issued by the Indian High Commission in Canberra on its official Twitter handle @HCICanberra.

The vandalism incidents, according to the commission, are clear attempts to sow hatred and division among the peaceful multi-faith and multi-cultural Indian-Australian community.
