On July 2021, Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai said in an interview with Vogue magazine: “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?” But months after her questioning the whole concept of marriage, Malala Yousafzai finally went on to tie a knot of marriage with Asser Malik, a manager for the Pakistan cricket board.

Malala Yousafzai on her social media handle posted pictures of her marriage and wrote “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.” Its iconic how Malala called marriage meaningless in her vogue cover story and just after months later post pictures of her small nikkah in a botanical garden with her delicious new husband by her side.

Author Tasleema Nasreen wrote “Quite shocked to learn Malala married a Pakistani guy. She is only 24. I thought she went to Oxford university for study, she would fall in love with a handsome progressive English man at Oxford and then think of marrying not before the age of 30. But…”

It’s not the first time Malala exposed herself. Malala Yousafzai calls herself a human rights activist but is always quite when it comes to the lives of minorities living in her own country Pakistan. Everyday Hindu girls are raped and forcibly converted but Malala seems to be busy in her own dream. Never she spoke about the freedom of Balochistan and Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. But will unnecessarily poke her nose inside Kashmir where muslims are given enough freedom and facilities.
