Millî Görüş is a Turkish political movement whose aim is to transform Turkey into an Islamic state. The movement was founded in 1969 by former Turkish Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan, who, until his death, headed the Islamist Felicity Party in Turkey. The ideology and political agenda of Millî Görüş has called for an end to the secular regime in Turkey through education and preaching. In Germany, Millî Görüş operates as the IGMG, which oversees the work of Millî Görüş chapters in at least 12 European countries and states that it has over 127,000 members worldwide. According to the German government, in 2019, 35 imams employed in IGMG mosques in Germany were sent by the Turkish Directorate of Religious Affairs (Turkish: Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı or Diyanet). The Diyanet is a Turkish state institution responsible for managing religious affairs.
