Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the founder of Arya Samaj and one of the greatest path finderís of Modern India, led a crusade against superstitions and pernicious practices that plagued the inhabitants of this ancient land. He gave a new bearing and rationale through the teachings of Arya Samaj. Much that had crept in out of ignorance was gradually weeded out. To accomplish the most cherished goal of the Swami, Dayanand Anglo Vedic Trust and Management Society was established in 1885. The First DAV institution both for school stage and higher learning was established at Lahore in 1886. Since then, the DAV movement has never looked back and runs nearly 770 institutions today in India and abroad.
