no Jainism is a slightly smaller branch that was actually derived from Hinduism or at least we think... Both religions were founded at roughly the same time and it is still unknown who founded Hinduism and thus, unknown about who founded Jainism. However, what we do know is that one of the most early, remote Indian religions called Vedism was definitely founded way before the two so it is most likely that they both derived after Vedism established and both are a probable branch of Vedism which has gone on to become gargantuan faiths; even bigge than Vedism itself!
