Nobel laureate and women’s education rights activist Malala Yousafzai’s husband Asser Malik revealed where the newlyweds first met. “The place we first met felt a little more special on Malala’s graduation day,” he wrote in an Instagram post while congratulating Malala on her graduation.

Malala has graduated with degrees in philosophy, politics, and economics from the University of Oxford.

Ziauddin Yousafzai also congratulated her daughter for “officially” graduating from the University of Oxford.


Malala tied the knot with Asser Malik in a small intimate nikkah ceremony in Birmingham on November 9.

Earlier Malala also opened up about how she met Malik. ““In the summer of 2018, Asser was visiting friends at Oxford and we crossed paths. He worked in cricket, so I immediately had a lot to discuss with him. He liked my sense of humour. We became best friends. We found we had common values and enjoyed each other’s company. We stood by each other in moments of happiness and disappointment. Through our individual ups and downs, we talked and listened to each other. And when words failed, I sent him a link to our horoscope compatibility, hoping the stars could help reinforce our connection,” Malala writes in the article.
