Nobel Laureate Malala's 'Nikah' held in UK' Birmingham


Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by the Pakistani Taliban for campaigning for girls' education, got married on Tuesday, she announced on social media.

The 24-year-old posted the pictures of her nikah ceremony on her Twitter handle on Tuesday. The ceremony was held in the city of Birmingham in the United Kingdom.

"Today marks a precious day in my life. Asser (Malik) and I tied the knot to be partners for life," she wrote on Twitter.

"We celebrated a small nikkah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families. Please send us your prayers. We are excited to walk together for the journey ahead," she added.

Yousafzai gave no other information about her husband apart from his first name. Many social media users have identified him as Asser Malik, general manager of the Pakistan Cricket Board's high-performance centre, from the city of Lahore.

The campaigner for girls' education gained international attention for her personal courage and eloquence in advocating for the rights of girls and women. She even stood against the Taliban, who were opposed to girls attending schools.

In 2012, she survived being shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for campaigning against its attempts to deny women education.

In 2014, she became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate at age 17. In 2018, she launched Assembly, a digital publication for girls and young women available on Apple News. She graduated from Oxford University in June last year with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.

Currently, she advocates for girls' education through her non-profit Malala Fund with an investment of $2 million in Afghanistan.
