Abstract


The belief or faith in God has remained an imperative issue of the study primarily in the social sciences because of the responsive spirit of the society as well as defined in copious ways.  It is a matter of one’s own trust in deity and its composition is an important determinant of demographic as well as societal behavior. It is not amazing that despite of being a land of great multitudes, having various social order and commune connection, linguistic and cultural specification, as well as immense geographical span, the Indian society has eternal consensus with its fundamental time-honored principles. The study tries to analyses the religious composition of state Haryana with respect to secondary data of religion, census years of 2001 and 2011. Though the state greets to every religion yet Hindu religion has its dominance in the society with almost homogeneous prevalence.
