Khan’s Tutorial Leaders Stand in Solidarity with Hindu Community After Violent Attack in Queens

Queens, NY – Yesterday, Khan’s Tutorial leaders, community organizers, and elected officials gathered in support of Swami Ji Harish Chander Puri. The 62-year-old Hindu priest was viciously attacked while wearing religious garb near Shiv Shakti Peeth Temple, at 264-12 Hillside Avenue last Thursday. The attacker beat the priest with an umbrella while reportedly telling Puri to “get out of my neighborhood”. Puri is currently recovering after being hospitalized and the attacker has been arrested. The NYPD is still determining if the incident will be classified as a hate crime.
