Criminal proceedings can be initated  under

IPC Section 153A - Promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony.

Section 295A of IPC provides imprisonment of up to three years for hurting religious sentiments. However the Supreme Court has limited the applicability of the penal provision to deliberate and malicious acts rather than casual observations that are not driven by malicious intent.
