When Gen Parvaiz Musharraf the then President of Pakistan was chief guest and speaker in European Parliament in September 2006 invited by Kashmir Centre Brussels. I was sitting next to G. Parthasarthy (former Indian Ambassador and Radha Kumar (current Indian interlocutor on Kashmir). Amb. G. Parthasarthy whispered to Radha Kumar hinting towards well dressed and smiling head of Kashmir Centre Brussels Barrister Majid Tramboo who was busy in receiving guests and giving them directions to have their seats, \”See the charm of ISI money on his face.\”
1. Musharraf as President of Pakistan visiting European parliaments indicates full support of diplomatic recognition by the European Parliament to Kashmir event.
2. It was CNN who even gave a special coverage of Musharraf’s visit to European Parliament.
3. Why only Dilip Padgoankar is being accused in Indian media. Why did G. Parthasarthy and Radha Kumar accepted invitation to attend the event despite knowing the money was funded by ISI.
4. A conference or meeting on Kashmir is being held either in European Parliament or in US Senate Building. Why did US and European authorities allowed to conduct these events and didn’t deny with the excuse what is being accused now?
5. During the election campaign Obama had vowed to appoint officially an Envoy on Kashmir. Now his FBI has arrested Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai an unofficial envoy of Kashmiris in USA.
