Abstract: Sociologists are interested in studying religion primarily for two reasons. First, religion is
very important to many people. Religious practices are important parts of many individuals's
lives. Religious values influence many people's actions, and religious meanings help them
interpret their experiences. Sociologists seek to understand the meaning of religion to
believers themselves. Second, religion is an important object for sociological study because of
its influence on society and society's impact on religion. Analysis of this dynamic relationship
requires examining the interdependence of religion and other aspects of society. Often this
means questioning taken-for-granted ways of understanding social action. From the earliest
foundations of the discipline, sociologists have sought to understand the larger society
through examining religion and its influence. The present paper gives a deeper insight on the
sociological approaches towards religion put forward by B.R. Ambedkar within the arena of
the Indian society.
