Who is Ayla Malik?: Alya Malik, a former minister, is a popular trending subject on social media because she is said to have participated in purportedly leaked talks and involved PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
Although it is impossible to establish the integrity of these contentious reported audio leaks.
Alya Malik, the subject of the purported audio leaks, has intermittently remained involved in politics throughout her career, and several scandals have already dogged her; these are just the latest.
Ayla Malik began politics in the 1990s when she joined the Millat Party, which Farooq Leghari formerly led.
She has also held the position of Millat Party Deputy Secretary General.
Later, in 2011, she joined Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI), working as Imran Khan’s Mianwali campaign manager.
She held a reserved seat for women in the National Assembly from 2002 to 2007 while running on the National Alliance (Pakistan) platform.
Ayla Malik also made a foray into journalism in 2009, serving as the host of Situation Room with Ayla Malik, a Current Affairs programme on Dunya News.
Ayla has been an integral part of PTI since 2011.
Although Aliya was high on the party’s priority list for a reserved seat in the National Assembly, PTI could not secure enough votes to nominate her for the legislature.
Following his decision to retain the Rawalpindi seat, PTI Chairman Imran Khan chose to run Ayla in the by-elections for the seat in Mianwali, his hometown.
In 2013, Ayla Malik received a ticket from Imran Khan from his Mianwali seat. She was, however, prohibited from running in elections due to a fraudulent degree case.
On July 30, 2013, a two-member Election Tribunal (ET) of the Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi Bench disqualified Ayla Malik for submitting a falsified intermediate degree to the Pakistani Election Commission (CEC).
According to reports, on July 20, 2013, the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Rawalpindi, deemed her intermediate diploma to be “bogus” since it contained the roll number of a failed male candidate called Imdad Hussain.
Ayla Malik was wounded on May 10, 2013, after unidentified armed individuals opened fire on her convoy in Mianwali. She managed to survive an attempt at the association.
Few people know that Ayla Malik is the descendant of a noble family from Mianwali.
She is a great feudal lord and former governor of West Pakistan whose granddaughter is Malik Amir Mohammad Khan of Kalabagh. Also a niece of Pakistan’s eighth president, Sardar Farooq Ahmed Khan Leghari.
Additionally, she is Sumaira Malik’s sister.
Yar Muhammad Rind, Ayla’s ex-husband, is also a politician.
She also missed her payments on a loan from Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited for Rs 40 million.
