After vandals deface Hindu temple, some come out to support Hindus in US

Though it didn’t convert into a mass movement or even a hashtag on Twitter, some residents of Bothell city in Washington tried to reassure the local Hindu community, which was left shocked and dismayed to see hate message written on their temple on the occasion of Maha Shivratri.

Local US media reported that some people came out and put posters and cards in support of the community. The hateful words on the walls have been erased too.
