A video through a post is being widely shared on social media claiming that Yasin Malik’s wife was seen crying in front of the camera. An NIA court had recently handed life term to the Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik, in a case related to terrorism and secessionist activities in 2016-17. Let us fact-check the claim made in the post.

Claim: Video of Yasin Malik’s wife crying after a life term was handed to him by an NIA court.

Fact: The video of woman crying is from ‘Azadi March’ organised by Imran Khan against the Pakistani PML-N government to dissolve the assemblies and announce an election. The woman is not Yasin Malik’s wife. Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik’s wife is a Pakistani artist named Mushaal Hussein Mullick. She cried in a press conference in 2019 which she was appealing for Yasin Malik and his health as he was in Indian prison then. Usually, she appears in press conferences appealing and requesting, for her husband’s release. Hence, the claim made in the post is MISLEADING.

When reverse image search is done on the screenshots of the video, the same video was found on YouTube. The YouTube video was uploaded by a Pakistani news channel ‘GNN’. The visuals of a woman crying are from ‘Azadi March’ that was held in Pakistan. They did not mention in the video that it was Yasin Malik’s wife.

When we searched in google with relevant keywords, the same video was found (here and here) shared by official handles of Imran Khan’s political party. ‘Azadi March’ is a march organised by Imran Khan against the Pakistani PML-N government to dissolve the assemblies and announce an election. The march which included women and children saw violence across Pakistan. Nowhere was it mentioned that the woman crying in the video was Yasin Malik’s wife.

Kashmiri separatist leader Yasin Malik’s wife is a Pakistani artist named Mushaal Hussein Mullick. She reportedly addressed the press recently and appealed to international community to help release Yasin Malik who was given a life sentence by an NIA court. She also appealed to Pakistan’s parliament recently.

A video of Yasin Malik’s wife crying and pleading for his health in 2019 had gone viral on social media as recent.  

To sum it up, the woman crying in this video is not Yasin Malik’s wife.
