Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai Gets Married In England


Activist and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai tied the knot with Asser Malik, general manager of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s high-performance center, from the city of Lahore. The 24-year-old posted the pictures of her nikah ceremony on her Twitter. The ceremony was held in the city of Birmingham in the United Kingdom.

“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,” Yousafzai said in her tweet.
