Religion is a system of belief in a higher, unseen power along with certain rights for worship. It is the metaphysics of the masses. It involves respect for the authority, so, belonging to a religious group means following its beliefs and practices. According to James Livingston:
"Religion is that system of activities and beliefs directed toward that which is perceived to be of sacred value and transforming power."
Data does not speak for themselves. It must always be interpreted either by the standards of the community being observed or by outside criteria brought to the study by an analyst.

India is a land of diverse religions. Unity and diversity still exist and it certainly should. Let us all join hands in making the world a better place to live.
