Won’t tolerate attacks on religious places: Aus PM

Australia is a tolerant multicultural nation and anyone responsible for attacks on religious places will face the “full force of the law”, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said on Saturday. His comments came a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi conveyed his concerns to Albanese over recent attacks on temples in Australia.
Albanese said Australia is a country that respects people’s faith and it will not tolerate any attacks on religious buildings, be they Hindu temples, mosques, synagogues, or churches.
Before he wrapped up his three-day visit to India, Albanese told a group of Australian journalists that the country’s security agencies will make sure that anyone responsible for such activities faces the “full force of the law”.
“I gave him the assurance that Australia is a country that respects people’s faith. That we don’t tolerate the sort of extreme actions and attacks that we’ve seen on religious buildings, be they Hindu temples, mosques, synagogues, or churches,” Albanese said.
“This has no place in Australia. And, we will take every action through our police and also our security agencies to make sure that anyone responsible for this faces the full force of the law. We’re a tolerant multicultural nation, and there is no place in Australia for this activity,” he said, according to a transcript released by the Australian PM’s office.
Albanese was asked what assurances he conveyed to Modi to protect Hindu temples in Australia.
Prime Minister Modi raised the issue of recent attacks on temples during his talks with Albanese at the first India-Australia summit on Friday.
