Separatist leader Yasin Malik returned to this Jammu and Kashmir summer capital along with his Pakistani wife Mishaal Mullick on Sunday.


The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman had married the Pakistani artist Feb 22 this year.

As the couple arrived at the Srinagar airport, they were warmly received by friends and relatives. Later, they reached their Maisuma residence where hundreds of supporters, mostly women, had gathered and greeted them with songs.

There was festivity in the locality where Yasin Malik's friends and relatives had gathered from early morning.

The British-born Mishaal Mullick has a degree in political economy from the London School of Economics. Her mother is a senior leader of the Nawaz Sharif-led Pakistan Muslim League.

Yasin Malik told reporters that his wife will not be involved in politics, and added that "Kashmir issue has to be resolved as per the wishes of people."
