Mushaal Malik asks every human being to feel the pain of a mother and a daughter.
On the eve of Indian independence day, the family of Yasin Malik urge the united Nations, the world community and people with heart to feel their pain. Mrs. Malik has released an official statement on the occasion. She also terms the Indian independence day as Black Day for her family and Kashmiris.
India celebrates its independence every year on 15th of August. The year, 2022 marks the 75 years of independence for both India and Pakistan. However, the issue of Kashmir remains a continuous rift between the nuclear armed nations.
India and Pakistan maintain control of territory in their own boundaries until a UN mandated plebiscite is conducted in the region. Both nations have fought several wars and skirmishes on their borders on this conflict. However, the Kashmiri people are the ones that face the wrath.
Yasin Malik is the face of unarmed and non-violent movement against Indian oppression in Kashmir. However, he was arrested on frivolous charges in 2019. He remained adamant that these are politically motivated charges and the Indian government is trying to damage the Kashmir cause through maligning his peaceful and non-violent struggle.

She has also asked every human being to imagine the pain of a family who are being put in pain by foreign forces.

Moreover, she ends up with an emotional call for every human being that they should feel the pain of a mother and a daughter.

On 5 August 2019, the Indian government had initiated a bill in its parliament to remove Article 370. Under Article 370, the special status of Kashmir ensured that it is a disputed region between India and Pakistan. It also disallowed transfer of property in the name of non-Kashmiri. This law ensured that the people of Kashmir owned the land of Kashmir. Read: How India makes major demographic changes in Kashmir.
Yasin Malik has continuously stated that his movement is non-violent and solely intends to see the freedom for Kashmir.
