Mufti expressed concern over the loss of lives in the recent Rajouri encounter, describing it as "sad and unfortunate." She questioned the BJP's claim that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir is normal, citing the ongoing challenges faced by security personnel and Kashmiri youth.

Regarding the remarks made by some PDP leaders in Rajouri against National Conference founder Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah, Mufti distanced herself and the party from those statements. She emphasized Sheikh Sahib's importance as a respected and tall leader, expressing regret for the bitter words exchanged.
