Well, you may get astonished that there is no founder of Hinduism and all other religions came into existence by their founders and are named after the name of their reformers excluding “Islam”. As Jainism is another form of Buddhism, Sikhism is predominantly based on Hinduism and is partly in Islam and Brahmoism is totally Christianity and Hinduism.

This religion has played a vital role in major shaping up the whole western civilization. The prime belief is in acceptance of the death-resurrection of Jesus, sinful humans can be reconciled to God and thereby are offered salvation and the promise of eternal life.

In simple words, I just want to say each and every religion are the feathers of the same of a bird. As there is one universe there is one God too. In early age, people started following the teachings of different prophets who explained the meaning of life, the difference between good and bad and spreading love. So as different people started admiring different prophets and reformers later when the time passed there were so many religions in front of us.
