The US Indian American Political Action Committee. According to Vijay Prashad:

Shortly after 9/11, a group of non-resident Indians (NRI) in the United States formed the Indian American Political Action Committee (INAPAC, shortly to be renamed USINAPAC). USINAPAC held two related briefs: to ensure that Indian Americans enjoy the same amount of political power it feels is held by the Jewish American community, and to deploy that power in the service of India, so that India may have something akin to the U.S.-Israeli "special relationship".
Formed in stealth and without any adequate claim to being a representative of the Indian American community, USINAPAC did however make common cause with various Jewish American lobby groups as the mainstream NRI group. On July 16, 2003, the American Jewish Committee (AJC), the American Israel Political Action Committee (AIPAC) and the USINAPAC held their first joint briefing.[1]
