Washington: A member of the US Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council has posted a controversial tweet defining America as an "Islamic country".

Mohamed Elibiary tweeted he considered the United States of America as an Islamic country with a Muslim-compliant Constitution, the Washington Times reports.

The controversial statement came in response to a query by a Twitter user asking Elibiary to give him just one example of an Islamic country where non-Muslims are treated with equality.

According to the report, Elibiary has served on the department's "Countering Violent Extremist Working Group," as well as its "Faith-based Security and Communications Advisory Committee."

He is also a strong supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, the report added.
