Vishva Hindu Parishad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Viśva Hindu Pariṣad (pronunciation: /vɪʃv(ə) hɪnd̪uː pərɪʃəd̪/, English: World Hindu Council), abbreviated VHP, is a Hindu organisation in India and is based on the ideology of Hindutva. Founded in 1964,[4] its main objective is to organise - consolidate the Hindu society and to serve - protect the Hindu Dharma.[1] The VHP volunteers are known for their efforts to promote and revive Hinduism and to develop unity and pride among all Hindus by its social service projects, encouraging the construction and renovation of Hindu temples, campaigning against social evils and orthodox practices in Hinduism like the caste system, opposing cow slaughter and conversions to other religions and taking up issues in the interest of Hindus such as resolving the Ayodhya dispute.[1]

The VHP is associated with the Sangh Parivar, an umbrella of Hindu nationalist organisations which also includes the centre-right Indian political party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the cultural organisation Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Its slogan is Dharmo rakṣati rakṣitaḥ, which means "Dharma protects its protector" and its symbol is the banyan tree. The current international president of VHP is G. Raghava Reddy,[2] while its executive president is Dr. Praveen Togadia.[2]

The VHP was founded in 1964 by Keshavram Kashiram Shastri. The other co-founders were the Hindu spiritual leader Swami Chinmayananda, former RSS member S.S. Apte, Supreme Spiritual Head of the Namdhari Sikhs Sri Satguru Jagjit Singh Ji and Sikh leader Master Tara Singh.[5] Swami Chinmayananda was nominated as its founding President, while Apte was nominated as its founding General Secretary.[5] The VHP, which considers Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs as part of the greater Hindu fraternity, officially mentions that it was founded by the "Saint Shakti of Bharat". The VHP was first mooted at a conference in Pawai, Sandipani Sadhanalaya, Mumbai on 29 August 1964. The conference was hosted by RSS Sarsanghchalak M. S. Golwalkar. The date was chosen to coincide with the festival of Janmashtami. Several representatives from the Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist and Jain faiths were present in the meeting, as well as the Dalai Lama. Golwalkar explained that "all faiths of Indian origins need to unite", saying that the word "Hindu" (i.e. people of "Hindustan") applied to adherents of all the above religions.[6] Apte declared:
