To profane, divert from sacred purpose.
The desecration of the depiction of the top religious leader.

To have contempt for or show disrespect for something that someone holds sacred or holy. To violate the sacredness of something. To defile something holy.
Do not desecrate the children's graves. To desecrate the ancient Native American's cave drawings should be harshly punished.
