Swami Dayanand Saraswati Ji

was an Indian religious leader and founder of the Arya Samaj, a Hindu reform movements of the Vedic dharma. He was also a renowned scholar of the Vedic lore and Sanskrit language. He was the first to give the call for Swaraj as "Indian for India" in 1876, a call later taken up by Lokmanya Tilak.] Denouncing the idolatry and ritualistic worship prevalent in Hinduism at the time, he worked towards reviving Vedic ideologies. Subsequently, the philosopher and President of IndiaS. Radhakrishnan called him one of the "makers of Modern India", as did Sri Aurobindo.

Those who were influenced by and followed Dayananda included Madam CamaPandit Lekh RamSwami Shraddhanand, Pandit Guru Dutt Vidyarthi, Shyamji Krishna Varma (who established India House in England for Freedom fighters,) Vinayak Damodar SavarkarLala HardayalMadan Lal DhingraRam Prasad BismilMahadev Govind RanadeAshfaq Ullah Khan[8] Swami ShraddhanandMahatma HansrajLala Lajpat Rai,and others. One of his most influential works is the book Satyarth Prakash, which contributed to the Indian independence movement.

He was a sanyasi (ascetic) from boyhood, and a scholar. He believed in the infallible authority of the Vedas. Maharshi Dayananda advocated the doctrine of Karma and Reincarnation. He emphasized the Vedic ideals of brahmacharya, including celibacy and devotion to God.

Among Maharshi Dayananda's contributions are his promoting of the equal rights for women, such as the right to education and reading of Indian scriptures, and his commentary on the Vedas from Vedic Sanskrit in Sanskrit as well as in Hindi.   -- From Wikipedia

In the middle of the 19th century, Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati felt a strong need to revitalise India intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. 'Back to Vedas' was his redeeming call. Maharishi Dayanand thus started a spiritual and social renaissance in society. After 3 years of the death of the Maharishi, i.e. 1886, Dayanand Anglo Vedic (DAV) Trust and Management Society came into existence, to realise the prophetic vision of this great thinker philosopher . It was registered under the Societies Act of 1860, and the same year the first DAV School was established at Lahore with Lala Hansraj { later on known as Mahatma Hansraj } as the Honorary Headmaster.
