Malala Yousafzai Got Married: Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has “tied the knot” with Asser Malik during a Muslim Marriage Ceremony in Birmingham.
She and Asser Malik took part in a nikkah ceremony, where the bride and groom consent to be married.
The 24-year-old activist said it was “a precious day” in her life.
“Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life,” she tweeted on Tuesday, sharing how they had taken part in a “small nikkah ceremony with family”.
“We are excited to walk together for the journey ahead,” she added.
Malala, now 24, was 15 when she was targeted by TTP in Pakistan for speaking up for the right of girls to be educated.
She survived the assault, in which TTP terrorists boarded her school bus in north-western Swat valley and opened fire, wounding two of her school friends as well as Malala.
At the age of 17, she became the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize. She went on to study at Oxford University and has become a leading human rights campaigner.
