Thanks to mk1 in the comments of a previous blog post for pointing me to this worrying story in the Harrow Times.
The latest attacks follow a spate of vandalism at the temple, which Buddhist leaders claimed was the work of Tamil Tiger sympathisers seeking retribution for the actions of the Sri Lankan Government. In the past two years, the temple has been fire-bombed, windows smashed, vehicles vandalised and the Sri Lankan national flag that flies outside the temple has been set on fire. Monks have also been repeatedly attacked.
Bizarrely, this is the first time I’ve heard about any of this. Anyone heard more?
