Why Buddhism and Hinduism are so different knowing the fact they both strive on meditation to find the truth?

Put very crudely, you could say that Buddhism = Hinduism minus Atman/Brahman. 

In terms of practice I don't think they're really all that different, in both traditions there is the theme of "seeing through" everyday experience and realising something deeper.

In terms of practice there are huge differences between Hinduism and Buddhism. Present day Hinduism emphasizes a lot on unconditional unquestioning devotion to a god of one's own choice, whereas Buddhism still insists on questioning and meditating.

Hinduism has the belief system that personal devotional deities can give blissful realizations if meditated upon, while Buddhism uses meditation to explore the inner workings of the mind.
