Jailed terrorist Yasin Malik’s wife Mushaal Hussein Mullick, who is a special adviser to the Pakistani Prime Minister, has released a statement on the Indian Supreme Court upholding the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status, calling it “judicial terrorism in India”.
She has called this a political stunt by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Top Indian intelligence sources said it was very strange that instead of someone from the ministry of foreign affairs, the Pakistan Prime Minister’s office used a “terrorist’s wife” to speak against the judgement.
“This is a five-judge-bench judgement and this explains everything,” said an intelligence official. “Pakistan PM’s office once again proved that they use terrorists against Kashmiri people. Earlier terrorists were used at the line of control, now they are using them in the PM office under the Pakistani flag.”
Mullick is extensively used by the ISI to speak against the Indian government and the alleged abuse of human rights in Kashmir, sources said. While the ISI can keep stone pelting, infiltration, On-Ground Workers (OGW) and major attacks going, she could speak in her official capacity in the United Nations (UN) and other fora against India and bring money in the name of jihad and Islam, said sources.
Yasin Malik is a Kashmiri separatist leader who was arrested in 2019 and later sentenced to life imprisonment in May 2022. He was involved in several violent attacks against Indian security forces, including the kidnapping of Rubaiya Sayeed, the daughter of the then home minister of India. He was arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) on charges of terror funding and waging war against the state.
Mullick, a graduate of the London School of Economics, married Yasin Malik in 2009. Yasin Malik met her during one of his tours to Pakistan in 2005. The couple has a young daughter, according to reports.
