A Hindu priest and his family who live at the Indian Community Centre in north Belfast have said they are planning to move out.

It follows an attack on the Clifton Street property last week, which they believe was racially motivated.

A gang of youths tried to break down the door of the centre while the priest’s wife was alone inside.

Stones were also thrown at the building and the gang tried to take grills off the windows to get inside.

The family said they were too afraid to speak publicly about the incident at the time.

According to Bidit Dey, who works at the centre, police did not make any contact with the priest’s wife after the attack.

“They did not actually stop by or call in to see her. This would have reassured them,” he said.
