Ex-Leader of US Islamist Group Calls Out Associates for Spreading Racism
Tamim Chowdhury, the former National Executive Director of the radical Muslim group Emerge USA, left his organization this past March, but he hasn't wasted any time leveling accusations at another extremist group he worked alongside with Emerge, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). His claim is that ICNA is spreading racism. Given ICNA's own radical and bigoted associations, the charge appears very plausible.
ICNA is the American affiliate of South Asian Islamist group Jamaat-e-Islami (JI). JI's militant wing, Hizbul Mujahideen, owned the Pakistani compound where Osama bin Laden was killed. ICNA, itself, has been linked to terrorist financing and has used the web to promote different terrorist groups, including Hamas, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Taliban. ICNA conducts annual functions along with the Muslim American Society (MAS), which, in November 2014, was designated by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government a terrorist organization.
