The article starts by outlining the main rights, protection or freedom given by law to the religion. Law and religion needs each other that the law gives religion the protection, justice, structure and encourages its devotion to order and the religion gives law its spirit and inspiration as we all know that India is a secular country . which means there is no particular state religion.
Secularism is one of the important part of India’s constitution.
Article 25-28 in the constitution of India provides right to religious freedom to protect religion. Many provisions were made in India’s constitution for the majority as well as minority Religious . religion is a very sensitive topic. People are sensitive as well as emotional regarding this topic. Our law provide protection and also put limitation so, no one can misuse the fundamental rights given by the constitution.
Law- A person is a social human being who live in the group called society. He has to do various activities to fulfill his basic needs or to learn livelihood, some activities are good or beneficial and some are harmful for society. So, to regulate the human behavior a set of rules is introduced which is known as law.
In real world, laws are set of rules which regulates the individual, group behavior or administration of state. Without law it is not possible to live peacefully and freely we don’t even know about many rules or laws but we understand them generally. We don’t need to see a written law. We generally know that stealing anything or harming anyone is a crime. There are many laws provided by the constitution of India to safeguard all citizens. For example – business law, contract law, consumer law etc. and many fundamental rights are provided to the citizen of India and our law protect all these fundamental rights.
It is well said that ‘everyone is equal in the eyes of law’. there is no discrimination , no one is rich or poor , big or small in front of law. Everyone get the equal justice Law is very important to each and every state. The administration of the country should not be run without rules and laws the preamble of the constitution of India said that India is a sovereign , socialist , secular, democratic and republic state. The word secular is added in preamble in 42nd amendment act of 1976. The words secular means providing equal treatment to all religion.

When religion come down to earth . it was based on two laws , its first motive is to teach people about god and about the way of worship and the second motive was to teach people about managing and regulating the lives by a set of rules. Religion is not a belief but it become a way of living because the followers of a particular religion follows a definite kind of livelihood and with this religion enters the boundary of law where people are compelled to follow and not to break the rules decided by the state . in the primitive community religion played an important role in the framing of laws . religion served as a necessary aspects of law.
Interrelation between law and religion- India is the birth place of four major world religious . some aspects of religious law are included in the India constitution which can be applied in certain contexts such as marriage , divorce or personal property disputes.
