Hinduism is the oldest living religion in the world. Its origins are rooted in the prehistoric cultures of India dating back to 5000 B.C.E. or earlier. It may also contain aspects of Indus Valley faiths. Strictly speaking, it is not a religion but a composite faith consists of many sects, subsects, philosophies, folk traditions and belief systems.

The word Hindu was originally a geographical name and referred to the people who lived in the Indian subcontinent. It acquired religious connotation only in the medieval period after the invasion of foreign rulers from Central Asia.
