Anyone defines Religion as set of beliefs and Constitution as set of fundamental principles. I look at both of them in a different way. Many think Religion and Constitution are different in many ways but can find many similarities between them if we look close enough.

Overtime, Religion and then Constitution guided the human race towards a better world. Both staying side by side in the world when travelling through time is actually disturbing Peace.

Religion is set of rules implemented in the early stages of human evolution by intelligent people so that they could bring the nomads together and build unity, harmony, responsibility towards each-other in that community.

Later, Constitution came in overcoming the limitations of Religion and with more diversity.

The purpose of Religion and Constitution is to guide humans towards a peaceful path. They both are meant to provide better lives.

Both the Religion and Constitution has judicial system. In Religion, God will punish people for their crimes and in Constitution; Judge will decide whether the accused is guilty of that crime. Both are slow when comes to the time they take to punish the criminal & they need to pick up speed.

The rules written in Constitution changes in accordance with time. Religion do changes its rules but may not be in a similar way. They were many practices left out in Hinduism over time and many added during its course of time. The change in rules is slow in Religion compared to Constitution.

Constitution strictly imposes its laws inside their borders and punishes those who behave in a way that is against it. Religion does the same thing, hurts the people that does not follow the rules prescribed in the Religious books. The problem here is Religion does not have boundaries or does not limits itself to the people that are following it. Therefore, Religion usually considers the whole world as its boundaries and everyone inside are supposed to follow it otherwise they will get hurt.

Constitution has superseded Religion in the recent centuries in the world. Even then, many follow the rules mentioned in Religion. Some principles in Religion contradict Constitution and vice-versa. This where everyone is getting confused and struggling to pick the right one.

Individual people, political parties, militants get confused with both the terms and are committing crimes. Militants & few Religious Political parties already picked, they prefer Religion to Constitution and want to impose those rules in the territories they rule. What they do not understand is, the Religion they picked needs to be updated to fit in the latest century. It has to be more inclusive and should let go off harsh rules.

All the countries prefer Constitution but the problem is they cannot let go off Religion of their books. This is causing internal conflicts in many countries.

The UN (United Nations) have to ditch one of these on a global scale for better governance. Once which one to continue is decided, the UN has to reshape the remaining one to make it perfect. Otherwise, the world will be cooked up in bigger religious fights. The jihadists currently doing in the world in the name of Islam is very small. More Religions are getting ready to pick similar path to protect their religions and impose their rules.
