Assemblymember Lee Responds To Attacks Against Hindu Temples

For immediate release:

Assemblymember Alex Lee has released the following statement in response to the spate of attacks against Northern California’s Hindu temples in recent months. 

“Recently, multiple Hindu temples in Northern California have been vandalized and burglarized, including the SMVS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir and Sri Ashtalakshmi Temple in my district. These are sacred places of worship, and our community members have the right to practice their religion peacefully and freely. I strongly urge our local authorities to take action to ensure the safety of our Hindu community members.”
