Agha Shorish Kashmiri (1917-1975) was a scholar, writer, debater, and leader of the Majlis-e-Ahrar-e-Islam party. He was a figure of the freedom movement of undivided India, as well as the chief editor of the weekly Chattan.[1]

Kashmiri started his political career in 1935 when he delivered a historical speech at the Shaheed Ganj Mosque conference, during the presidency of Zafar Ali Khan. He was a student of Zafar Ali Khan, but was disappointed by the violence at the Shaheed Ganj Mosque in 1935.[2]

Kashmiri was impressed by Chaudhry Afzal Haq, who was a political leader of Indian sub-continent, so he joined All-India Majlis-e-Ahrar-e-Islam and the struggle for Ahrar Party. Kashmiri was also impressed by his religious and political teacher in typical word murshad Ameer-e-Shariyyat Syed Ata Ullah Shah Bukhari.[vague]

Kashmiri was elected as secretary General of All-India Majlis-e-Ahrar-e-Islam in 1946. He played a role[3] in Tehreek-e-Khatme Nabuwwat in 1974.
