Pakistani Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai’s father is not happy with how people reacted to her daughter’s comments on marriage. According to Ziauddin Yousafzai, a purported comment of Malala about marriage in a popular fashion and lifestyle magazine has been taken out of context and twisted.

The 23-year-old gave a wide-ranging interview to British Vogue and features on the magazine’s July issue cover. Ever since Malala provided her extensive interview, highlighting aspects of her life and beliefs, she has been a top trend on Twitter. Why? Because she approved partnership but not marriage.

“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?” Malala told British Vogue. She spoke about how her friends were all finding partners but she wasn’t sure what she wanted. “You know, on social media, everyone’s sharing their relationship stories, and you get worried…If you can trust someone or not, [and] how can you be sure.”

Like most Pakistani mothers, Malala’s mother is suitably horrified at her daughter’s opinions. “My mum is like, ‘Don’t you dare say anything like that! You have to get married, marriage is beautiful,” said Malala. Malala was once against marriage. However, her opinions are changing. She is just 23 and at this age, youngsters often battle such questions in their heads. However, her statement triggered people back home in Pakistan.
