Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai is married

Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai is married

She announced the exciting news on Twitter and asked for prayers for her new journey.
Updated 10 Nov, 2021

Congratulations are in order because Nobel laureate and activist Malala Yousafzai surprised everyone on Tuesday night by announcing she had tied the knot with Asser Malik.

"Today marks a precious day in my life," she wrote in a Twitter post. "Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We celebrated a small nikkah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families," she announced, asking people for prayers.

The 24-year-old wore a tea pink outfit paired with simple jewellery. Her husband is Asser Malik, the general manager of the PCB's High Performance Centre. He wore a simple suit and matched his tie to her outfit.

Malala's father Ziauddin Yousafzai also posted on Twitter about the news.

Her friend also posted pictures from the nikkah featuring a beaming Malala

And her new husband did too!

We did some digging and found that Malik and Malala have been pictured together before on his Instagram! He posted a group picture of her with Adnan Malik.

In fact, he has posted pictures multiple times.

He also posted a birthday wish for her on her 24th birthday.

In an interview to Vogue in June, Malala spoke about valuing partnership over marriage. She discussed her friends all finding partners but not being sure what she wanted herself. "You know, on social media, everyone’s sharing their relationship stories, and you get worried…If you can trust someone or not, [and] how can you be sure.

“I still don’t understand why people have to get married. If you want to have a person in your life, why do you have to sign marriage papers, why can’t it just be a partnership?” she had said. Well, it looks like Malala has found her partner and we couldn't be more glad for her.

I guess Malala’s life long plan of education and rights for the girls of Pakistan and Afghanistan will have to take a back seat, but Malala will gladly keep the millions she made for it.
