The inaugural World Hindu Congress (WHC) held in 2014 saw 1800 delegates from 53 countries, taking part in 7 parallel conferences to deliberate and formulate solutions to the myriad challenges faced by Hindus throughout the world. The resounding success of WHC 2014 means that the Hindu community now has a consistent global platform to address and resolve the relevant issues that affect Hindus.
In the past, the Hindu community has only held forums and conferences intermittently, with the implementation of resolutions and proposed policies being sporadic at best. The fatal convergence of these developments has greatly undermined the effectiveness of any gains made at previously held conferences. To break this inconsistency and to regularly bring Hindu society together on a common platform with a common purpose, the World Hindu Congress will be organized every four years, in a joint manner, consisting of all like-minded Hindu groups. The next WHC will be held in 2018 in USA.
The World Hindu Congress (WHC) is an informal organization, solely dependent on the efforts of associated Hindu organizations and activists. Each Congress will be held in a different part of the world. All Hindu organisations, associations and institutions are encouraged to participate and are most welcome to become partners in World Hindu Congress.
