Who started the Faraizi movement?

The Faraizi movement was started and led by Haji Shariatullah in 1819. The movement extolled Muslims of Bengal to give up un-Islamic practices and act upon their duties as Muslims. 

The Faraizi movement was widely received in the districts of Dhaka, Faridpur, Barisal, Mymensingh and Comilla. The British along with the landlords of the region undertook a smear campaign against his movement which was largely successful.
