A video of a man stealing the donation box from a temple has gone viral on social media. 

However, what grabbed the netizen's attention is that the man prayed before stealing the donation money. 

The video shows a shirtless man coming inside the temple and offering prayers. The man then removes the donation box and takes it with him.

The video has accumulated many over two million views, triggering different reactions from the people. 

Many people sympathised with the man, saying that he was helpless.

"That’s how desperate people have become. He knows it’s wrong but obviously feels like he has no choice," wrote another.
