Communal riots are not new these days. In an era where people are finding possible ways to take the planet to the next level, communal disturbances have time and again broken out between the two ethnic or religious groups. These riots are often instigated by religious maniacs.

Two years ago, the news of breaking an idol of Lord Ganesha went viral across social media portals. It has also been reported that a Burqa clad woman (possibly a Muslim lady) in Bahrain barged into the shop and destroyed the idols of Lord Ganesha.

The video was captured while she was intentionally damaging a shop… and breaking Hindu God idols” in the Juffair area in the capital Manama. It was an activity-filled with religious hatred to offend crores of Hindus living across the world. The act might have stirred up tension in India too. The Indian government at the centre did not summon the gulf ambassador.

In the video, two women can be seen standing near an aisle where idols of Hindu gods are kept on the shelf. Meanwhile, one of the women picks up the idols and then throws them on the floor and shatters it.

However social media users in India strongly protested and tried to build up pressure.

Consequently, the Capital Police took legal steps against a woman, 54, for damaging a shop in Juffair and defaming a sect and its rituals, in order to refer her to the Public Prosecution,” the police said on its Twitter account.

After the stern protest in India, a senior Bahraini official condemned the act, calling it a “hate crime”.

“Destroying religious symbols is not part of nature of the Bahraini people,” royal adviser Khaled bin Ahmed Al Khalifa said. “It’s a crime that exposes alien and rejected hate,” he added in a tweet.

The incident took place in Manama, Bahrain where two unidentified women entered the shop in order to damage the idols. The incident has come in a series of attempts of damaging a religious symbol.

As per reports, a complaint has been registered for vandalizing the idols. People were furious when they got to know about the broken idol of Lord Ganesha. The Police have launched a probe into the matter. The incident sparked widespread condemnation on social media. Social media users are demanding stringent action against the culprit.
