In an interview with Vogue magazine four months ago, Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai said, “I don’t understand why people get married. If you want to be with a man, stay. Do you need documents, signatures for this? Why can’t two people easily share life together? ‘
Malala has started a new chapter in her life. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials have tied the knot with Asar Malik, who was married in London. Malala announced her marriage in a tweet last Tuesday night. He is being criticized for his remarks in an interview in July.
Malala Yousafzai, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, made it clear in a statement on the BBC’s “Andrew Marr Show” that she was concerned about marriage, not against it.
The presenter asked Malala, ‘You were against marriage, why did you change your position?’ Malala said, ‘I was not against marriage, I was worried about marriage. It is true that child marriage, separation and the imbalance of power are the concerns of countless girls around the world. ”
On marriage, Malala said, “In marriage, a woman has to compromise a lot more than a man. These practices have been created due to patriarchy and wife hatred. Women have to live by adapting to these. So the situation we are going through must be questioned. ”
“I am really lucky to have found someone who understands me,” said Malala, a 24-year-old Pakistani women’s rights activist. Aware of my values, understand my sense of humor. Besides, there are many similarities between the two of us. ‘
Earlier, an article on Malala was published on November 11. The title of the article was ‘Malala’s Marriage in Her Own Language’. There, Malala said of the marriage, “I have found a best friend and partner.”
“I was not against marriage, I was against the practice,” Malala wrote. I raised questions about masculinity. I also talked about the issues that women have to deal with after marriage and the impact of cultural norms and misogynistic attitudes on marriage laws in different parts of the world. ”
Malala further wrote that marriage was a matter of losing her freedom, femininity and human rights. Behind this view was his childhood spent in Pakistan. In the country, marriage is introduced to girls as ‘slavery’.
Finally, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai was overjoyed to receive her bachelor’s degree. Malala, 24, graduated from Oxford University a year and a half ago with a degree in philosophy, politics and economics. However, due to the Corona epidemic, the certification ceremony was postponed.
Malala’s fiance was accompanied by her husband Asa Malik at the time of her graduation from the prestigious Oxford University in the United Kingdom. On his Twitter account, the owner posted a picture of his wife Malala getting a degree. Malala also posted pictures of the happy moment on social media Instagram.
“Apparently I have a degree,” Malala wrote on Instagram, posting several photos of the special day.
Among the photos posted was Malala in a convocation black gown and hat at the Oxford England campus. In one photo, Malala is standing with her friends.
In another, the husband comes with the owner. In another photo, Malala is accompanied by her father Ziauddin Yousafzai and mother Tur Pekai Yousafzai.
“The place we first met became even more special on the day Malala graduated,” Asar Malik wrote in a photo on Twitter.
The ceremony was scheduled to take place in Oxford in May 2020. But as the Kovid epidemic spread around the world, it was put on hold.
According to the website of this world-renowned university, the organization of graduation ceremonies has resumed in Oxford from September. The event was held on several dates in the last two months.
