On September 20, 2006 Hinduism Today reported, "In the face of increasing attacks, Hindus in Fiji have hired security to protect temples. Three attacks on temples in five days led to an emergency meeting of the Hindu religious organization, the Sanatan Dharam. The meeting discussed security for their temples after Senior Superintendent Jahir Khan said they should provide their own security because police could not be at every place of worship 24 hours a day. The Howell Road Temple in Suva has hired a security guard by day and engaged a security company to provide protection by night."
