Fiji's largest Hindu organisation Shree Sanatan Dharam Pratinidhi Sabha shree sunny-TAAN duh-rum-pruh-teen SUB-uh says security has been stepped up at Hindu temples in the wake of four attacks over the last month.

The Tirath Dham temple in Nadi was vandalised just before Christmas and there have been other attacks on temples near Suva, the latest just last week.

The organisation's National Secretary Virendra Lal says they strongly condem any act of religious intolerance.
