Malala’s views on marriage spark anger on Twitter


Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Prize winner in history, made it to the cover of a popular magazine, British Vogue, for its July issue and people including Pakistan celebrities are celebrating it.

In a wide-range interview with the magazine, the 23-year-old shared her views on various matters including marriage, girls’ education, and empowerment, besides sharing her future plans.

Yousafzai, who graduated from Oxford University last year, was praised for her opinions on many matters but her view on marriage sparked a frenzy on social media.

Malala, who isn’t sure if she’ll ever marry herself, in the interview said “I still don’t understand why people have to get married. If you want to have a person in your life, why do you have to sign marriage papers, why can’t it just be a partnership?”

She said that her mother disagrees with her views.  “My mum is like,” Malala laughs, “‘Don’t you dare say anything like that! You have to get married, marriage is beautiful.’”

As the interview was published, some social media users starting roasting the noble laureate for rejecting the need and concept of marriage.
