Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) was founded on 29th August 1964, on the auspicious day of Shri Krishna Janmashtami , with the blessings of the Saint shakti of Bharat. The objective of the VHP is to organise- consolidate the Hindu society and to serve – protect the Hindu Dharma. A strong, effective, enduring and ever-increasing presence of VHP is seen in lakhs of villages & towns in Bharat. With an increased Hindu activity all over the world, a strong & self-confident Hindu organisation is slowly taking shape.
Through over 100000 service projects in the field of health, education, self- empowerment, Gram Shiksha Mandir, etc. VHP is strengthening the grass-root level of Hindu society.
Through the consistent efforts at eradication of social evils like untouchability, VHP is absolving the Hindu society & rejuvenating it to express it’s inherent Hindu Unity.
By taking up issues like Shri Ramjanmabhoomi, Shri Amarnath yatra, Shri Ramsetu, Shri Ganga Raksha, Gau Raksha, the Hindu Mutt- mandir issue, the religious conversions of Hindus by Christian Church , Islamic terrorism, Bangladeshi Muslim infiltration etc, VHP is proving to be the indomitable force of the Hindu society for the protection of its core values- beliefs and sacred traditions.
