On the occasion of Mehbooba Mufti's birthday, we bring to you some facets on her personal journey.
Mufti, at 56, became the first woman Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir in 2016. Her first political win was in 1996, at a time when terrorism and militancy was at their peak in the state. Determined to be part of the change, Mufti ventured into politics with exemplary political courage in a volatile Kashmir valley that had been reeling under a separatist insurgency since the late 1980s.
Despite being embroiled in several anti-national controversies, Mufti stood firm in her opinion and continued to remain a leader with grassroots-level popularity. Watch the video for more.
