A video has been going viral for the past couple of days. We see a Christian woman kicking the diyas lit by her Hindu neighbours in Chikkadpally's Archana Apartment in Hyderabad.

The news is that the Hyderabad police have taken the woman and three offers from her family into custody. A case has been registered under IPC sections 295, 295-A 509, 355, 506 r/w 34.

At first, the police said that communal angle is ruled out. They found out that the neighbours have not been on good terms and therefore, the woman took out her anger in an improper way. But since the woman kicked diyas lit for Diwali, she can be deemed to have hurt the religious feelings of her neighbours. That's why a case has been lodged under Section 295-A, which deals with this: Injuring or defiling a place of worship or any object held sacred by any class of persons with the intent to insult the religion of any class.
