Congressman Adam Smith (D-WA) released the following statement:
“I was disgusted to learn about the vandalization of the school and Hindu temple in Bothell. These acts are unacceptable and will not be tolerated. From civic leaders to business owners, the Hindu community is a valued part of our society. In the face of this act of hate, our community remains strong and resilient. I look forward to continue working with community leaders to promote diversity, respect, and freedom."
