  • 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 Islamis­che Gemein­schaft Mil­lî Görüş (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. Der Spiegel report­ed that between 2004–2009, IGMG offi­cers fun­neled at least €9.5 mil­lion to the Felic­i­ty Party.
