In summer 1965, members of the party which maintained an opposition status were arrested and it continued activities in small circles underground.
In 1977, the leaders split. Payman founded Movement of Militant Muslims and Sami revived the organization with the same acronym, this time standing for "Revolutionary Movement of Muslim People of Iran" (Persian : جنبش انقلابی ملت مسلمان ایران).
