A Buddhist temple sues Fremont for religious discrimination
“The permit issue could be remedied over night if the city would be willing to,” said civil rights attorney Angela Alioto who represents the Temple. She said permitting is essentially a ruse. “They did not want this Buddhist community on this hill,” said Ms. Alioto.
Ms. Alioto will file a second action against Fremont next month in addition to the one already served, outlining multiple accusations of abuses of power and unprofessional conduct. “We will go to the Supreme Court of the United States of America before we let anybody tear down temples,” said Alioto.
