Since late 70’s it had been strongly felt that there were need of an umbrella organization to co-ordinate the activities of Hindu based organizations which were indiscriminately scattered and diversified all over the world.
It was a collective urge to resound the Hindu –interest globally through an institution vetted with the responsibility and authority from all the Hindus of the world. As the consequences, an extensive World Hindu Conference was held on the auspicious occasion of Ram Nawami 1981 at Pipara(Birgunj,Nepal).The mega event was kindly graced by Late His Majesty Kind Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev.Thus the institution was born.
