Controversies• In 2016, she invited a controversy when she decided to approve compensation for Khalid Muzaffar Wani’s family. Khalid was the brother of slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani who was killed by the security forces on 8 July 2016. She said, “Militant Aur Militant Ki Family Mein Hume Farq Karna Padega, Unko Ek hi Nazar Se Nahin Dekh Sakte (We have to differentiate between militants, and their families. (We) cannot look at both in the same manner).” Mufti’s statement was condemned by a majority of political parties including the BJP and the Congress.
• In July 2016, she again fell prey to a controversy by making a statement inside the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly; in which she quoted, “they [Kashmiri Pandits] can’t return to their original homes in the current atmosphere.” She likened their homecoming to “throwing pigeons among the cats.” Mufti drew a lot of flak from various quarters, for this erroneous “pigeon-cat” analogy.

Political Career

When elections for the state assembly were held in 1996, Mehbooba became one of the most popular members elected from Bijbehara on an Indian National Congress ticket. Her father had returned to the Congress, which he had left in 1987, angry at the alliance that party had formed with its traditional rival in the state, the National Conference. Mehbooba quickly made a mark as the leader of the opposition in the assembly, taking on the government of Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah with asperity.

Mehbooba is one of the few female politicians from Kashmir who is recognized across India. When Mufti Mohammad Sayeed split from the Indian National Congress to form the Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 1999, many thought she would be the party president. She deferred to her father’s experience, however, and became party vice-president.

She resigned her assembly seat and went on to contest the parliamentary elections in 1999 from Srinagar, where she lost to the sitting member Omar Abdullah. She won the Pahalgam seat in the state assembly from South Kashmir, defeating Rafi Ahmed Mir, when assembly elections were held again in 2002. She was elected to the Lok Sabha from Anantnag seat in 2004 and 2014.

After her father’s death in January 2016, when he was heading the coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir, she took forward the same alliance with Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), the second time the BJP and the PDP formed a government in Jammu and Kashmir. On 4 April 2016, she took the oath and became the first woman Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir.

On 25 June 2016, she won an Assembly seat in a by-election in Anantnag with the highest margin in any recent elections there and thereafter focussed on settling of Rohingyas and rapidly escalating police cases on Hindu masses.

She again contested 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Anantnag seat but lost it to Hasnain Masoodi of National Conference.
