DebutIn 1996, when she was elected a Member of Legislative Assembly of J&K
Controversies In 2016, she invited a controversy when she decided to approve compensation for Khalid Muzaffar Wani’s family. Khalid was the brother of slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani who was killed by the security forces on 8 July 2016. She said, “Militant Aur Militant Ki Family Mein Hume Farq Karna Padega, Unko Ek hi Nazar Se Nahin Dekh Sakte (We have to differentiate between militants, and their families. (We) cannot look at both in the same manner).” Mufti's statement was condemned by a majority of political parties including the BJP and the Congress.

• In July 2016, she again fell prey to a controversy by making a statement inside the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly; in which she quoted, "they [Kashmiri Pandits] can’t return to their original homes in the current atmosphere." She likened their homecoming to "throwing pigeons among the cats." Mufti drew a lot of flak from various quarters, for this erroneous "pigeon-cat" analogy.
