24-year-old Malala Yousafzai, who survived a Taliban attack at 15, makes for a beautiful bride as she ties the knot with partner Asser Malik.
Malala Yousafzai took to social media to announce the delightful news of her wedding. “Today marks a precious day in my life. Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. 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.”
The 24-year-old human rights activist looked beautiful as she tied the knot with partner Asser Malik in a small nikkah ceremony in Birmingham. Clad in pink and photographed by award-winning photographer Malin Fezehai, the news has reinstalled our faith in fairy-tales and happy endings.
Malala’s wedding news (especially the adorable pictures) have taken social media by storm. Everyone has something to say and for this couple it is a flood of wholesome wishes and congratulations. The pictures have stolen all our hearts and the happiness is infectious.
Interestingly, Malala had questioned the concept of marriage in her interview with Vogue earlier this year. She was quoted as saying, “I still don’t understand why people have to get married.”
Husband Asser Malik must be quite a special guy to sweep her off her feet and make her change her mind!
Malala became renowned for her bravery at 15, when she survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban. She then went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize for her ‘struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.’
Asser is also a man of great career achievements. He is the General Manager High Performance for the Pakistan Cricket Board. He has worked for Pakistan cricket league teams and has always been involved in the cricket scene. He is also reported to have run a player management agency.
At 12, Malala wrote blogs on BBC under a pseudonym on her struggle to acquire education and on the importance of education for girls. In 2012, in an attempt to kill her, the Taliban shot a 15-year-old Malala in a bus on her way to school. This incident changed her life forever. The assassination attempt was to stop her from raising her voice for school girls. The tragedy turned this brave girl into a household name. She went through multiple surgeries in the UK and settled there with her family.
She went on to write an autobiography “I am Malala” in 2013 and started a charity. Two years later, became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize! She later went on to acquire a degree from Oxford in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
Despite her achievements, she has been seen as a regular young millennial enjoying life with her friends & colleagues. Her insistence on living a modest life while supporting great causes has always been a source of inspiration.
Malala Yousafzai has been an inspiration for everyone around the world. Seeing her tie the knot has rejuvenated our belief in living life on our own terms and more importantly with love.
We truly hope she finds the ideal partnership in the marriage and wish her the best for future!

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
