WOULD THERE BE ANY LESS KILLINGS, IF THERE WAS NO RELIGION?

A fascinating question by Saadia Asad

Whatever little I know of history, and keeping in view whatever is happening around the world nowadays, this thought keeps pestering my mind. I would like to share and get any feedback.

WOULD THERE BE ANY LESS KILLINGS, IF THERE WAS NO RELIGION?

If NO, then are murdering, killing and torturing  part of human composition?

If YES, do religions in any way promote or justify such acts carried out in their names?
