Top Biden Economic Policy Adviser Linked to Kashmiri Extremists – By J.M. Phelps (American Spectator) / Mar 4 2021
NEC deputy director Sameera Fazili should be monitored.
Promising to put together one of the most diverse cabinets in American history, President Joe Biden has appointed at least 20 Indian-Americans to various positions within his administration, including the first two women of Kashmiri descent. Alarmingly, one of his latest picks to the National Economic Council (NEC) has a history of involvement with anti-India activists known to sympathize with violent Kashmiri separatists and South Asian terrorist groups.
Indian-American Sameera Fazili, who is of Kashmiri origin, was recently appointed as Biden’s NEC deputy director, becoming one of America’s leading voices on economic policy. But foreign policy experts in India are warning that “her actions need to be monitored” due to the economic adviser’s involvement with dissident anti-India groups.
Fazili is a member of Stand with Kashmir (SWK), which was founded by her cousin, Hafsa Kanjwal. SWK has been touted as “a Kashmiri diaspora-led international solidarity movement that seeks to end the occupation and support the right to Kashmiri self-determination.”
