Hinduism is very old and existed much before Rama and Krishna. Vedas are said to be basis of Hinduism. We do not know who authored these. so, it is notpossible to name founder of Hinduism.
Prophet Mohammad is the founder of Islam and Quoran is the holy book
Jesus Christ founded Christianity.
Guru Nanak founded Sikhism.
Gautam Buddha was founder of Buddhism
However, above named prophets did not found any religion as such. They gave holy message and taught humans way of living. The followers organized themselves asorganized religious community. All religions guide for better living. It cannot besaid that oldest religion is necessarily best. .

Except Hinduism all other religions mentioned herein has Phrophets or Saints as founder.

Hinduism is base of life and forms, that's why nature is worshiped in hinduism like Himalayas; Ganges; Moon on Lord Shiva's head; Snake on Lord Shiva's neck etc.
