SCOTTSDALE - Several people stood Sunday morning near a Lutheran church in Scottsdale holding signs directed at a Hindu celebration across the street.


The Hindu Temple of Arizona was celebrating the last day of its Ratha-Yatra festival by pulling a chariot down Hayden Road when several people appeared with signs bearing messages about Jesus being the only deity.


The celebration was in honor of the Hindu god Krishna.


The Rev. Brian Murphy, pastor of Holy Cross Lutheran Church, said he does not know who the people holding signs were. He said they were not members of the church.


"One man came in and told me what they were going to do, but I didn't give him permission," Murphy said.


Dinesh Updhyaya, the Hindu priest at the temple, said no one at the temple seemed angered by the protesters.


"It was quite peaceful," Updhyaya said.


"Everyone is allowed their religion."
