PM Modi Australia Visit: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a three-day visit to Australia, on Wednesday raised the issue of attacks on temples in the country. He said Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has assured strict action against such elements in the future.

During a joint address with Australian PM Albanese, PM Modi said that Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and I have discussed the issue of attacks on temples and activities of separatist elements in Australia in the past. We discussed this matter even today.

PM Modi said that we will not accept any such element which by their actions or views harms the friendly and cordial relations between India-Australia relations. PM Albanese today once again assured me that he will take strict action against such elements in future also.

Let us tell you that recently Indian flags were burnt in Australia by the Khalistanis and a Hindu temple was also vandalised. Earlier, during his visit to India in March, Albanese had said that Australia would not tolerate any extremist actions and attacks on religious buildings and there was no place for such action against Hindu temples.

The Australian PM had said that I assured him (PM Modi) that Australia is a country that respects people’s faith. We do not tolerate such extreme actions and attacks. Be it Hindu temples, mosques, synagogues or churches. It has no place in Australia.
