Hinduism has no founder, single teacher nor any prophets.
Hinduism is not a Single Religion. Hinduism is the practices of a variety of different religious groups which come out of India.

All other faiths have one God we have Three and then chattis crore devi devtas.
but still the best thing about hinduism is that we are not as strict about all this as sikhs, muslims and charistians all they are all united and we are all devided. for example some one prays to shiva, some to vishu and some to lakshmi and so one. but in other relegions, for example islam, they pray to only one power and that is Allah. people of all other relegions are united in their beleifs, but unfortunately we are not

There are as many interpretations of Spirituality as there are Hindus. There is no specific doctrine that everyone follows.

There are thousands of Gods. Some believe in the Prophet Muhammad, and even Jewish Prophets. There are quite a few Hindu Christians, that accept Christ, but believe in the "oneness" principle and yoga common in Hinduism.

It is also not exclusive, meaning nobody goes to hell for not believing a specific thing (for most Hindus). Such as Christianity which excludes all non-believers of Christ as the son of God. Most Hindus believe in Karma, that every good/bad action in this life gets paid for in the next life.

Technically everyone is a Hindu, because at its core, Hinduism is an individual's search for truth.
