Malala Ties the knot with Asser, a manager with PCB

Malala Yousafzai, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, married in a modest ceremony in Birmingham on Tuesday, the education campaigner announced on Twitter.

The education campaigner tweeted on the microblogging website: “Today is a significant day in my life. Asser and I exchanged vows to be life mates. We had a tiny nikkah ceremony with our family at home in Birmingham. Please offer us your well-wishes. We’re looking forward to embarking on this trip together.”

Malala also shared four images from her nikkah ceremony, in which she was photographed with her newlywed husband, Asser, and her parents, Ziauddin and Toor Pekai Yousafzai.

Malala donned a melon-pink gown with gold embroidery on her big day. Malin Fezehai, a photographer and visual journalist, was there to take her nikkah photos.

Her father said the occasion was “beyond words” on Twitter.

Malala’s infamous Vogue interview

The announcement of Malala’s nikkah has prompted a range of reactions on the Internet, from ‘Pakistani mother pressure’ to ‘becoming cricketing royalty.’

Malala expressed her controversial views on marriage in an interview with British Vogue earlier this year.  She spoke with British Vogue about her opinion on marriage, revealing that her parents had an “arranged marriage”.

“I still don’t understand why people have to get married,” she remarked.

She continued, “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 also said that her mother disagrees with her. Her remarks and views on marriage sparked a debate on social media and people grew enraged.
