On August 10, 2001, Newsday reported that "a State Supreme Court judge has issued a restraining order against a popular Hindu temple in Flushing, preventing it from spending temple funds, after six members accused its board of concealing financial records. The Hindu Temple Society of North America, which governs the Ganesha Temple..., has been ordered not to use any assets, sign any contracts or conduct any major expenditures unless authorized by temple membership." The president of the Hindu Temple Society denied all allegations. "Those familiar with the conflict said the immigrant Indian community could be hurt by such a public quarrel."
