Indian community in Watford, England is fighting to save a Hindu temple in the suburb.
The community members have launched an online petition to save the Hindu temple in Watford, a town and borough in Hertfordshire, England, 15 miles northwest of London, on the River Colne.
The temple is about to be shut down by the Watford Borough Council.
“This minority Hindu community in Watford needs their temple to practice their faith, worship, congregate and to come to the Temple for their festivals, celebrations, and important religious ceremonies that are essential to their everyday lives,” reads the petition started by Prashanth Elangovan.
According to the petition, the temple has been given a deadline to vacate the council-owned premises.
“Closing this Temple will severely affect the Local Hindu Community in Watford, who depend on it for their faith and wellbeing, especially during these difficult times,” reads the petition.
