The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Mohammad Yasin Malik has always been vocal about an independent Kashmir. On Monday, he was quoted as saying that neither Kashmir nor Kashmiris belong to India. Recently, he has been in news after he allegedly assaulted an Indian journalist, who wanted to take his interview.
A leading channel’s investigative report ‘Hurriyat Truth Tapes’ had gone viral in which it had the evidence that top Kashmiri separatists are receiving funds from Pakistan’s state and non-state actors including Hafiz Saeed to spread unrest in Kashmir. And in the wake of these reports, a journalist from the channel wanted to interview Yasin Malik and record his statements. But the reporter was allegedly assaulted by JKLF chief.
However, Malik has denied any mishandling on his part, and said that the journalist lied to his sister about having an appointment with him, and barged into his bedroom.
Talking about Malik, he has been involved with the party since 1989 and has been advocating for a separate state of Jammu and Kashmir, independent from India and Pakistan. Did you know that 51-year-old Yasin Malik tied the knot with a Pakistani artist in 2009?
Well yes, not many people know this, but the duo met for the first time in Pakistan when Malik was visiting the country. Mushaal Hussein Mullick was also at the same rally and was impressed with the ideologies of Malik. They then remained in touch and finally tied the knot in 2009.
