“The idea of the WHC is to unite and gain strengthen for the Hindu society and with that look after the interest of the society as well as help other deprived, marginalised communities of the world,” Swami Vigyananand told PTI in response to a question. He insisted that this is not areligious conference. “The conference is neither religious, nor philosophical. The conference is focused on community issues. It is focused on issues that is relevant to the progress of any community in modern time,” Vigyananand said.

Over three days, more than 250 speakers would hold brain storming sessions over seven parallel conferences: economic, education, media, organisational, political, and women and youth.
