However, Malala shared four photos from the nikkah ceremony, where she was seen with her husband Asser and her parents Ziauddin Yousafzai and Toor Pekai Yousafzai. On her wedding day, Malala wore a pink dress with gold embroidery. Malin Fezehai, a friendly photographer and visual journalist, filmed the photos of her wedding, according to the news.
Meanwhile, Malala Yousafzai, 24, is a Pakistani education activist and the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history. She garnered international attention in 2012 after the Taliban shot her in the head in northwestern Pakistan for defending girls' basic right to education. She was 16 when she delivered a speech on the need for gender equality in education at United Nations Headquarters. The attack on Malala Yousafzai led Pakistan to pass its first law on the right to education. Interestingly, she also published a book about her attack and the aftermath of it, titled I am Malala.
Malala graduated from Oxford University but refused to attend Harvard University to focus on co-founding the Malala Fund with her father, an organization that seeks to promote girls' educational programs around the world.
