Marx propagated Scientific Socialism was buzz word throughout the world in 19th and 20th century. With its success in 1917 Russian revolution, the philosophy attracted men throughout the world. However, with the collapse of Soviet Union, the world is looking for a new philosophy to guide it through the turbulent times. An important constituent of Marxist ideology was its anti- religious stance. In India, the current government of Bhartiya Janta Party is following the path suggested by Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya through his philosophy of Integral Humanism during 1960s which lays emphasis on ‘Dharma’. So, it becomes important to analyse Marx’s ideas on religion viz-a-viz, the concept of Dharma propagated by Upadhyaya.
