The All Ceylon Muslim Congress is a Sri Lankan political party representing the Muslim community of Sri Lanka. It was formed in 2008 by four MPs elected to parliament from the opposition Sri Lanka Muslim Congress who had left their party and joined the ruling United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) in 2004.
In the presidential election of January 2010 the party supported President Mahinda Rajapaksa and in the April 2010 general election it contested as a part of the UPFA and won three seats. The party's current MPs are party leader Risad Badhiutheen and Hunais Farook from the Vanni District and M. L. Alim Mohammad Hisbullah from Batticaloa District. Badhiutheen and Hisbollah are also government ministers.
