Social and Religious Movements in India

In the 19th century there was a political anarchy in India. Our culture and civilization was under heavy pressure. On the one hand, there were the Britishers and their followers who were trying to disfigure our cultural heritage whereas on the other hand our social evils were proving a blot on our culture.
The spread of liberal ideas of the west provided further stimulus for the emergence of reform movements. These movements introduced important changes in social and religious life of the people of India.
