Background to the Islamic Movement

The Islamic Movement (IM) was created by Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP), following the 1999 schism with its former leader Hassan Al-Turabi and his supporters who formed the Popular Congress Party (PCP).

The IM was designed to exist as a parallel and broader political base to support the Islamist orientation of the NCP regime and rally Sufi and radical Islamist groups under its umbrella, while excluding the PCP.

Sudan’s ruling NCP dominates the IM with Sudan’s NCP Vice President Ali Osman Mohammed Taha serving as it’s Secretary General from 2004 until 2012.
