Basheer Segu Dawood started his political career with EROS militants (Eelam Revolutionary Organisation of Students) and contested his first parliament election in 1989 under the EROS banner. He failed to be elected in Batticaloa district where he contested and secured last place in the list. After few months, EROS parliamentarians boycotted the parliament on the instruction of LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) demanding Sri Lankan government for reasonable solution for Tamils. It resulted in EROS parliamentarians to lose their posts due to long absence from the parliament. Then next people on the elected list called for oath to parliament but they denied as their determination not to attend parliament until their demand fulfilled as they determined. When in late 1989 Basheer Segu Dawood's turn came to take oath to parliament, there was a political turmoil in Sri Lanka. There was a conspiracy against then president Ranasingha Premadasa to bring impeachment. Then Premadas called and asked Basheer segu Dawood to take oath to parliament and join his hands. Basheer Segu Dawood accepted his request when some of his demands fulfilled by Premadasa and entered to the parliament in late 1989. Since Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) ever first political party for Sri Lankan Muslims, Basheer Segu Dawood opposed the party and its ideology. He criticized SLMC founder M.H.M. Ashraf very strongly. He ordered his EROS cadres to monitor SLMC activists and control their political activities in Batticaloa district when he was a prominent in EROS. in 1994 Basheer Segu Dawood joined SLMC in Sandaan kerny, Kalmunai where SLMC annual party conference was held. Segu Dawood was appointed as the United National Front's (UNF) National List MP in the Sri Lankan Parliament in December 2001. In January 2003 Segu Dawood was elected chairman of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress. Segu Dawood did not re-enter parliament at the April 2004 parliamentary election but in July 2004 he was appointed a National List MP by the UNF, replacing W.P.S. Pushpakumara.
