Nobel Peace Prize Malala Yousafzai got married in a small ceremony in the UK


Malala Yousafzai got married this Tuesday in a small ceremony held in the city of Birmingham, UK, where he currently resides. The activist for girls’ access to education and the youngest Nobel Peace Laureate announced the wedding and shared several photos of the ceremony on social media.

“Today marks a precious day in my life,” he wrote. “Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We celebrated a small nikkah (Islamic wedding) ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families. Please send us your prayers. We look forward to walking the journey together. we have ahead.”

Malala was born in 1997 in the Suate Valley, Pakistan. In 2009 he started writing for the BBC, recounting his experience during the period of growing Taliban influence in the region. In 2012, after several threats, the radical group tried to kill her. The young woman, then just 15 years old, was shot in the head. “Instead of silencing me they amplified my voice beyond Pakistan,” he later wrote in the 2019 book We Are Displaced.

In 2014 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize together with Indian child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi. At age 17, she became the youngest laureate in the history of this distinction.

The young Pakistani woman has remained an active voice in defending girls’ right to education. In 2017 she became a UN Messenger of Peace.

Last year he graduated from Oxford University in philosophy, politics and economics.
