Malala Yousuf Zai’s remarks regarding marriage has brought her immense backlash.
Pakistani former actress Veena Malik and Mathira also came forward and shared some words for Malala condemning her statement.
Earlier, on 1st June, The BritishVogue published an interview of Malala, titled “I Know The Power A Young Girl Carries In Her Heart : The Extraordinary Life Of Malala”, in which she shared her stance on marriage and relationships.
The published interview reads: “Malala’s parents had an ‘arranged love marriage’, as she describes it – they liked the look of each other, and their parents worked out the rest. She isn’t sure if she’ll ever marry herself. “
Malala went on making a statement regarding marriage and 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?”
“I just thought, ‘I’m never going to get married, never going to have kids – just going to do my work. I’m going to be happy and live with my family forever’,” said Malala.
