Hindustan has rich heritage of Indus Valley Civilisation and Vedic civilisation which flourished since 3300 BC (as per historic records) till 12th century AD. The rise of Hinduism greatly influenced Indian Sub-Continent. However, incessant foreign invasions and change in educational system particularly during British rule and subsequently, the knowledge of Hinduism diminished.

In modern education system in India, Hinduism is not taught thereby depriving the post-independence generations from rich heritage of India and best of leading life.
