Council leader responds to attack on Sikh temple in Leith

Councillor Adam McVey has condemned the incident, which took place at the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib on Tuesday morning.

He said: “This was a reckless and cowardly act, particularly on such important pillar of the Leith community.

“It’s too early to speculate on the motivations behind it but an attack on a place of prayer has no place in our, or any, society. It’s attack on all of us and our beliefs.

“Here in the Capital, we quite rightly celebrate our cultural diversity and the warm welcome that we consistently extend to peoples of all faiths and nationalities – and I am sure the people of Leith and Edinburgh will join me in condemning this despicable attack and standing in solidarity with all those affected.”
