The Fairazi movement was a movement in Bangladesh in the 18th century started by the Islamic reformer Haji Shariatullah. Haji Shariatullah started the movement because at that time the Indian Subcontinent was under British rule and they didn't allow Muslims to practice their religion with freedom and their rights were confiscated. After the death of Haji Shariatullah in 1840 his son Mohsin-u-din continued his movement but he was later captured and was killed by British. Haji Shariatullah started this movement to purify Islam.[1]
