ASIP I RAJA RAM MOHAN ROY

Indian Personality- Reformer


Raja Ram Mohan Roy was a zealous Social reformer holding modern
and progressive views. He was born in 1772, in a prosperous and orthodox Brahmin family at Hoogly in West Bengal.


Raja Ram Mohan Roy was a great scholar too. He made a wide study of different religions of the world including
Christianity and Islam. He also knew many languages like English, Persian, Arabic, Latin, French and Hebrew.

He
was honoured the title 'Raja' by the Mughal Emperor. Raja Ram Mohan Roy believed in the fundamental unity of all
religions. In 1814, he founded, 'Atmiya Samaj' and in 1828, the 'Brahma Samaj'. Through these organisations he wanted
to expose the religious hypocrisies and to check the growing influence of Christianity on the Hindu society.

By far,
the greatest achievement of Raja Ram Mohan Roy as a social reformer was the abolition of 'Sati' in 1829, child marriage
and 'Pardha'. He was been rightly called the 'Father of Indian Nationalism'. He died on 27th September 1833, in England.
