Some of the board members of Emgage USA have links to US Muslim Brotherhood organizations. For example, Co-Chairman Khurrum Wahid was at one time a legal advisor to CAIR as well as an officer of the CAIR-Florida branch while AJ Duranni is associated with a subsidiary of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, in turn with ties to the North American Islamic Trust. Durrani also has relationships with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and with MPAC. That said, neither individual appears to play a major role as a leader with the USMB structure.However, EMGAGE does engage in coalitions with US Brotherhood groups. Most importantly, EMGAGE is a former member of the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) established in 2014 by eight organizations, seven of which are part of the Muslim Brotherhood in the US.
