On 19 May 2022, the Australian Hindu Association had been provided with a four-page letter carrying the address of Revesby Gurudwara – 14-16 The River Road, Revesby.

The letter goes on to make various concocted and repugnant statements about Hindu dieties. It also claims that,“…Hindu in Persia means “chor [thief], dakoo [dacoit], raahzan [waylayer], and Ghulam [slave].” It opines that “RSS/Brahmins…should have no place in a country like Australia.” - AHA Press release added
AHA press release further stated:
"Members of the AHA were furious upon reading the contents of the letter. However, it is clear that the letter has been written by a semi-literate buffoon."
