List of Socio-Religious Movements during 19th Century

 

The urgent need for social and religious reform that began to manifest itself from the early decades of the 19th century arose mainly due to contact with Western culture and education.

The weakness and decay of Indian society was evident to educated Indians who started questioning the practices and initiated working systematically for their removal. They were no longer willing to accept the traditions, beliefs and practices of Hindu society simply because they had been observed for centuries.

The impact of Western ideas gave birth to new awakening. The change that took place in the Indian social scenario is popularly known as the Indian Renaissance.

Below is the list of social and religious reform organisations and the personalities associated with it.
