- Malala's husband couldn't help but praise her a day after their big day, terming her as a beautiful and supportive partner
Pakistani women's rights activist Malala Yousafzai's husband, Asser Malik, has showered praise on his new life partner, a day after they tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in the UK.
Taking to Twitter, Malik shared he couldn't ask for a better partner.
"In Malala, I found the most supportive friend, a beautiful and kind partner — I'm so excited to spend the rest of our life together," Malik wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo of them cutting a cake together. Thank you all for the wishes on our Nikah. In following our cricket team's tradition, we had to do a victory cake cutting," Malik, who is a Pakistan Cricket Board official, said.
On the other hand, Malala, announcing the news on Twitter yesterday, termed it a "precious" day.
"Today marks a precious day in my life. Asser and I tied the knot to be partners for life. We celebrated a small nikah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families. Please send us your prayers. We are excited to walk together for the journey ahead," she said.
Netizens congratulate Malala and Malik
YEN.com.gh previously reported that Malala posted the four photos from the ceremony in which she could be seen posing alongside her newlywed husband.
The news of her marriage saw celebrities, activists and netizens congratulated her and wish her well as she embarks on her marital life.
However, some people thought her getting married was a double standard as in a past interview, the activist had insinuated that she does not see a reason why people ought to get married and sign legal documents.
Here are some of the comments from her post:
"Congratulations to Malala and her husband!"
"Mubarak. May he understand the gift he has received and respects it."
"Wish you all the best, May God bless you, and congratulations."
