On August 4, 2005 Enfield Independent reported, "Vandals and fly-tippers have driven worshippers out of a Hindu temple in Edmonton.

Thugs have hurled stones at the Krsna Yoga Mandir temple, tried to wrench open the door, and thrown dozens of heavy bags of rubbish into the grounds.

Now visitors to the temple in Balham Road, which also serves as a community centre for elderly Hindus, say they feel too scared to visit.

Hindu priest Bandit Krishnatreya, 79, fears they are the victims of a backlash against minorities in the wake of the terror attacks on London."
