The role of Arya Samaj in the development of nationalism

Arya Samaj occupies an important place in Indian history and literature of the nineteenth century. Such a wide and subtle change did not occur even in the medieval period due to the contact with the religion of Islam. On the one hand, India became a slave of a remotely situated caste in the nineteenth century, and on the other, he gained new consciousness by taking advantage of the western knowledge and scientific inventions, and rejuvenated the medieval and many mythical evils, leaving the laziness of life tied to practices and traditions. Of. History bears witness to the fact that it was expressed as a conflict between East and West in a situation of political and economic slavery, ie, the struggle of Indian spirituality and western materiality. Political and economic consciousness was only part of that consciousness. Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati (1825 1883) is a pioneer of nineteenth century social and religious reformers. He founded the Aryasamaj in Mumbai on 10 April 1875 AD (Chaitra Shukla 5 Saturday, 1932 Vikrami).
Contribution of Arya Samaj
Arya Samaj was a movement for education, social reform and nationalism. 85 percent of India's freedom fighters were born by Arya Samaj. The main architect of the Swadeshi movement is the Arya Samaj itself. Swami Dayanand wrote the book Satyarth Prakash and several Vedic interpreters in Hindi language. An Englishman named Shirol had written to Satyarth Prakash as a hound of the British Empire. In 1886, Lala Hansraj Nai Dayanand Anglo Vedic College was established in Lahore, a follower of Swami Dayanand.
