He previously served as Chief Minister from November 2, 2002, to November 2, 2005. He was also Home Minister of India from December 1989 to November 1990.[1] He founded the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Democratic Party, in July 1999 to “persuade the Government of India to initiate an unconditional dialogue with Kashmiris for resolution of the Kashmir problem.”[2] On 1 March 2015, Sayeed was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, for the second time and served in that position until his death on 7 January 2016. Mufti Muhammad Sayeed passed away on January 07, 2016 at AIIMS due to multi-organ failure [3]

Political party affiliations[edit]

Mohammad Sayeed had been a member of the Indian National Congress party until 1987.[4] He is said to have brought about the downfall of the Jammu & Kashmir National Conference government, which was led byFarooq Abdullah, in 1984.[4] In 1987, he quit the Congress party to join V. P. Singh‘s Jan Morcha, which led to his becoming the first Muslim Minister for Home Affairs in the Union Cabinet of India in 1989.[5]

He rejoined the Congress under P V Narasimha Rao which he left in 1999 along with daughter Mehbooba Mufti to form his own party, Jammu and Kashmir People’s Democratic Party.

Attacks on his family and himself[edit]

In 1989, within few days of taking office as the Union Minister for Home Affairs, his third daughter Rubaiya was kidnapped by terrorists.[6] She was released in exchange for the release of five militants.[5][6]

Mohammad Sayeed has survived several attacks in his life by Kashmiri separatists who oppose Indian rule.[6]

Mohammad Sayeed participated in the 2002 assembly election and won 18 assembly seats for his People’s Democratic Party. He went on to form a coalition government with the Indian National Congress, and was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir for a term of three years.[7]

Second tenure (2015-2016)[edit]

Following a coalition agreement between the BJP and the PDP, Sayeed undertook a second tenure as Chief Minister of the state.[8]
