A Hindu temple in the Hague was vandalised earlier this week. Alleging the act as 'intentional', the chairman of the temple temple Siddarth Ramdhani said; "not only during Ramadan, but also during our religious festivities, youths are harassing us."

"The temple is a mess. The windows were broken by several large stones that were found inside. They were probably thrown from a fairground opposite the temple.They had to make considerable effort, because both windows are double glazed", he added.

The Hindu temple is in The Hague’s 'Schilderswijk area', allegedly known for being a hotbed for jihadist and ISIS sympathisers.

Earlier in 2014, several radicals were arrested and sentenced by a Dutch court for being members of a criminal organisation following a large anti-Israel demonstration that took place in the area.
