Tehreek-e-Hurriyat (Movement for Freedom) is a separatist political party of Syed Ali Shah Geelani. Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir was founded on 7 August 2004. On its first foundation day, 7 August 2004, more than 1 lakh people, according to most conservative estimates, gathered at Hyderpora Srinagar, showing solidarity and commitment to its objectives and goals. In August 2006, instead of a public convention, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat's Central Council decided to organize a convention of members, candidates for membership and the basic members of the party. Need was felt to elaborate the basic goals and objectives of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat in this convention. The convention was scheduled for Sunday to make it easier for the majority of members to participate. The basic objective before the founders of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat is to earn Allah's pleasure through unambiguous service to the basic principles of Islam (Faith), Azadi(Freedom)and Itihad-e-milat (Fraternity).[1]
