TEXAS, US: A Hindu temple in the US state of Texas has been attacked and some of the valuables stolen from the premises, leaving the Indian community in a state of shock. Shri Omkarnath Temple is the only Hindu temple in the Brazos Valley, Texas, a place for local Hindus to worship, and find peace and community.
“There was a sense of invasion, that sense of loss of privacy when something like this happened to us,” Srinivasa Sunkari, a Board member for the Brazos Valley Shri Omkarnath Temple said.
“There was a break-in. They broke in through the side window and what was immediately apparent was missing is our donation box and a safe in which we keep our valuables,” Sunkari said.
“The priest and his family who live in an apartment right behind the temple, they are safe,” he said.
The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office says they are investigating the attack.
