Religion is an all-pervasive phenomenon of traditional societies. In societies which are at transition stage, effect and influence of Religion has though reduced to some extent but still it continues to rebound with full force when its tenets are challenged. Industrializing societies or developing societies are such societies which have not yet escaped from the clutches of orthodox religious mindset but in addition have acquired the individualism and rationality to argue and question the rationality behind religious dogmas. Thus, two opposite and unequal forces co-exist in developing societies. The religious tenets are still all-encompassing and excel if conflict arises between the two. This paper is an attempt to find out the place of religion in Industrializing Societies and its future trends.
