The National Hindu Students' Forum (NHSF (UK)) is a network of Hindu societies operating on university and further education campuses in the United Kingdom. The NHSF (UK) was started in 1991 from a stall at a Hindu marathon, but now operates in around 50 different institutions around the United Kingdom.[1] The NHSF has been described by historian Edward Anderson as having ties to the Sangh Parivar, Hindu nationalist group of organisations in India.[2]
