As the wedding season descends upon us, we are already brimming with news of either newly married couples or those who are on the precipice of tying the knot (whether they admit it or not).
And the first ones to kickstart this season are none other than the Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, a woman who has inspired thousands with her tales of courage and words of wisdom, along with husband Asser Malik.
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.
Upon a little digging into the guy, Internet users found a rather startling picture of Malala and Asser with a life-size cut out of Shah Rukh Khan, captioned, “Happy Birthday to the most amazing @Malala @iamsrk had to make a necessary cameo of course.”
Safe to say the newlywed couple is an SRK fan and we love it!
Malala and Asser got married in a ceremony in Birmingham, England which is where Malala’s family moved to after she was shot by the Taliban in Pakistan for speaking up for girls’ right to education.
She was 15 when she was shot, and by 17 she won a Nobel prize.
Malala is 24-years-old now and married to Asser Malik who works as a manager for Pakistan’s governing body for cricket, according to his LinkedIn profile and graduated from Pakistan’s Lahore University of Management Sciences in 2012.
