ISLAMABAD: Mashaal Malik, wife of detained Kashmiri leader Yasin Malik, has questioned India over doing all-out efforts for its spy Kulbushan Jadhav while she has been kept from meeting her husband for over three years.
In a recent video message, Mashaal expressed reservations over India not making efforts for their meeting, despite being a country that talks the most about democracy.
She said it has been over three years now since she and her daughter met Yasin, a Hurriyat leader detained in Indian-occupied Kashmir. Mashaal added her husband was part of a “great struggle” and added that she believed Kashmiris will get the fruit of their struggle.
She started her message with paying tribute to Mohammad Ali Jinnah, citing a quote from American author, John C Maxwell, “A leader is the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way”.
Mashaal said the saying fit well for Quaid-e-Azam for the way he won Pakistan, adding that people should walk in his footsteps and follow his teachings.
Earlier in the day, Jadhav met his mother and wife who had flown in from India after they were granted permission. The meeting was held at the Foreign Office in Islamabad.
