Malala Yousafzai — Girl’s Education Activist Assumes New Status

Malala Yousafzai, the campaigner for girls’ education and Nobel Peace Prize laureate who survived being shot aged 15 by a Taliban gunman in her native Pakistan in 2012, has got married, she said on a Twitter social media post.

Malala who is now 24-year-old, and living in Britain, said she and her new husband, who she named only as Asser, had wed in the city of Birmingham and celebrated at home with their families.

“Today marks a precious day in my life. Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life,” she wrote on Twitter, adding four pictures to her post.

Malala gave no other information about her husband apart from his first name.

Internet users identified him as Asser Malik, general manager of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s High-Performance Centre. Reuters could not confirm this.
