Summary/Abstract: This paper presents a historical overview of civil gatherings and demonstrations. In particular, we analyze the religious element in the demonstration, which affects the motivation of many people in the past. The fact is that many demonstrations and still have a religious element, although this is not the main motive for the demonstration. I concluded on the basis of the analysis that the religious element influenced many movements in the past but that there pseudo religious element in secular demonstrations such as the Revolution and the October Revolution in Russia.It is also important to note that many factors affect the extreme notion that religion is misused for political purposes.
