Narouji Furdonji, Dadabhai Naoroji, S.S. Bengalee and others began religious reforms among the Parsis in Mumbai in the middle of the 19th century. In 1851, they founded the Rahnumai Mazdayasnan Sabha or Religious Reform Association. They played an important role in the spread of education, especially among girls. They also campaigned against the orthodox practices in Parsi religion. In course of time, the Parsis became one of the most progressive sections of Indian society.

Earlier Child marriages were common in Parsis, but they were the first one to reform from the evil practice.

With development of Bombay , Parsis made themselves fit for services under the British and even developed mercantile relations with them
