WHO IS MUSHAIL MALIK?
Yasin Malik Who’s Been Advocating For An Independent Kashmir Is Married To A Pakistani Artist Who Paints Nudes
Yasin Malik has been involved with the JKLF since the year 1989 where the party’s goal has been the independence of the entire State of Jammu and Kashmir; both from India and Pakistan.
51-year-old Yasin Malik who has been advocating for a separate Kashmir, tied the knot at the age of 43 with Britain-born Pakistani artist Mushaal Hussein Mullick, which again gathered much negative attention.
The duo crossed paths in Pakistan when Malik had visited the country for a separatist movement. Young Mushaal had visited the rally as well and was impressed with Malik’s ideologies of peace and non-violence.
After a casual meet at the rally, the duo remained in touch and soon after tied the knot in the year 2009 in Pakistan’s Rawalpindi.
Mushaal Hussein Mullick is a famous artist in Pakistan who takes to painting semi-nude and nude pictures. Although a Pakistani, she was born and raised in Britain and also completed her education from London.
He is the militant Muslim leader who slaughtered to drive India out of Kashmir and she is the glamorous LSE student who paints naked Muslim ladies.
She specialises in paintings which capture “raw beauty of the feminine mystique,” she says, but they would be regarded by many of her fiance’s militant comrades as pornographic.
In a ‘Rose That Left A Thorn Behind,’ a passionate Pakistani woman with wild hair is shown naked from the waist up, glancing over shoulder, revealing her breast. In The Forgotten Love, a softer-looking woman stares out of the frame, brushing her cheek with hand, and covering her nipples with her arms.
Her paintings may not seem controversial in the West, but in Pakistan where Taliban militants have bombed girls’ schools, murdered dancing girls, and destroyed music and video shops in recent weeks, they are explosive.
On her website, Mushaal, 28, says she began painting as a child, and her current work reveals a fascination with the striking faces and voluptuous curves of green-eyed Pakistani women. She shows her works at carefully selected exhibitions in the country and donates proceeds of sales to charities supporting women’s causes.
She comes from a distinguished establishment family in Pakistan, where her father was a university professor and her mother a women’s leader of the powerful Pakistan Muslim League.
JKLF leader Yasin Malik, 42, is said to have met and fallen in love with Mushaal at a conference in Pakistan. He missed his engagement ceremony last October when he was jailed for agitating for an election boycott.
Friends said although he was personally a Muslim, he was not a fundamentalist and his choice of bride was his own personal affair.
“The Kashmiri freedom struggle is a political and not religious struggle. Marriage is always a personal decision and one should not mix it up with politics. As far as I know Mushaal is a well-known painter and if she finds her paintings as a way of expression, there is nothing wrong,” said Yasin’s friend Shahidul Islam, a leader of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference against Indian rule in Kashmir.
