Vandals target Kent Hindu temple

635606793604238383-kenthindutemple2KENT, Wash. — A possible hate crime left its mark on the Kent Hindu temple.

Members who came to worship Friday night were greeted by shards of broken glass after vandals targeted the building last night.

KING 5 counted seven broken windows and some graffiti on the temple walls.

Regulars at the temple said they weren’t sure if they were targeted for their faith or if neighborhood teens were just causing trouble.

The council on American Islamic relations worries the Hindu temple was mistaken as Muslim and says they’ve seen an increase in religiously motivated crimes in the last few weeks.

Both the FBI and Kent police have been told about the vandalism.
