Congress MP Shashi Tharoor joins UK firm which had hosted NDTV’s Nidhi Razdan in controversial Kashmir event

The CTD Advisors was founded last year by former British banker and business strategist Shoaib Bajwa as a London-based international affairs advisory firm with global access.

In what may trigger a controversy, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor has now decided to join a UK-based advisory firm CTD Advisors which had recently organised anti-Indian events in London.

According to the reports, the Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor will be joining as a strategic advisor at a UK firm known as CTD Advisors. Shashi Tharoor will be providing strategic advice to the clients of the firm, who operate in opaque and unfamiliar political and regulatory environments and manage their reputational risk.

The CTD Advisors was founded last year by former British banker and business strategist Shoaib Bajwa as a Pakistan-origin-London-based international affairs advisory firm with global access. CTD Advisors had hosted the event ‘The Cost to Britain of the Kashmir Crisis: Is There a Solution?’ at the Chatham House, London on November 7 which had caused a huge controversy after it had resorted to peddling falsehood against the Indian government by inviting anti-Indian voices.

NDTV journalist Nidhi Razdan had attended the event along with other anti-Indian voices. She had mirrored the lines what were being peddled by Pakistan to paint India as evil and Pakistan as a victim of terrorism. To the delight of the Pakistani establishment, she also added that India’s credentials at the world’s largest democracy have been shadowed by the events in Kashmir.

The event was attended by former Pakistani envoy to the UN Maleeha Lodhi and Lyall Grant, UK’s former National Security Advisor, who stated in the event that “Modi’s actions in occupied Kashmir are radicalising Kashmiris and that has a direct impact on UK’s national security where more than 1 million Kashmiris live.”

The event was shockingly endorsed by terrorist organisation JKLF. The JKLF had called the event as an event that managed to ‘bring Kashmiri voices’, by referring to Razdan’s speech. The JKLF had also thanked the organisers profusely. It is needless to remind here that ironically, JKLF has been one of the chief initiators of radicalisation and terrorism in the Kashmir valley. Its chief Yaseen Malik is currently facing charges for killing Indian Air Force personnel in cold blood.

Tharoor will be joining the firm along with former UK National Security Advisor Sir Mark Lyall Grant, who was also one of the invitees to the anti-Indian event organised by Bajwa. Former Head of British Defence Intelligence Chris Nickols and the Friends of Israel Group’s Honorary President Lord Stuart Polak will also be part of the firm.
