Condemnation – Desecration of War Memorial

Press Release

Condemnation – Desecration of War Memorial


Hindu council of Australia expresses its pain on learning that a war memorial in Canberra has been desecrated with grafiti. We condemn this act and express our full support with soldiers, war veterans and families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend Australia and its way of life.

Those of us who have called Australia home acknowledge that we are enjoying prosperity, freedom and security due to the sacrifices made by  Australian soldiers. We urge all Australians to show utmost respect for all war memorials. These brave souls fought so that we can demonstrate. While all Australians have a right to peaceful demonstration, they should not act like a vandal and refrain from being disrespectful to Australian Heroes.


Surinder Jain

National Vice President

Hindu Council of Australia
