Call for Social and Religious Reforms:
The progress of Indian society was stunted because of superstitions, orthodox way of life, caste discriminations, false social notions, lack of curiosity, and rationality that prevailed on a large scale. The social reformers who were trained in the modern education system introduced by the British developed a different world view. They felt the need of creating a new Indian society that cherished the progressive values of ‘Freedom, Equality, Fraternity, and Humanism’. Therefore, they began to work towards creating mass awareness on various social and religious issues.
