The development comes a day prior to the threat from secessionist group Sikhs for Justice (SFJ)’s claim to “lock down” India’s Consulate in Vancouver.

The vandalisation occurred at the Shri Mata Bhameshwari Durga temple in Surrey.

The incident came to light on Thursday morning and was reported by the Surrey detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

Rohit, a member of the temple management, told HT that the graffiti has been removed.

India’s high commission in Ottawa had flagged to Canada’s foreign ministry Global Affairs Canada about the perceived threat to its diplomatic premises in Vancouver as SFJ had called for pro-Khalistan elements to lock down the Vancouver Consulate on Friday.

This call came in retaliation to the enforced cancellation of the Khalistan Referendum, which was scheduled for September 10 at a school in Surrey.

On Sunday, Canadian authorities withdrew their permission to hold voting at a public school after concerns were raised over their promotional materials that featured the image of an AK-47 machine gun.
