No other details are known of the activist’s new husband.
Malala rose to global prominence in 2012 after being shot in the head by Taliban gunmen as she boarded her school bus in northwest Pakistan.
She first became a target for the regime after defying a ban issued in 2009 forbidding girls to go to school and penning an anonymous blog for the BBC highlighting life under Taliban rule with a personal emphasis on women’s right to education.
She went on to become the youngest person ever to Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, being just 17-years-old. The human rights activist went to go on to begin her studies at Oxford University in 2017.
She now continues to advocate for the rights of girls globally to receive a full education.
