Malala Yousafzai gets trolled and slut shamed after her unverified image wearing jeans in UK goes viral
Malala Yousafzai, perhaps one of the youngest torch bearers of women empowerment herself fell victim to the unforgiving world of internet trolls and was slut shamed after unverified images of her walking around on the streets of London dressed in denims began circulating online.

No sooner had the images gone viral that deplorable posts from self-proclaimed cultural vigilantes began raining, condemning Malala over her choice of attire.

The photo which is still unverified first appeared on Siasat.pk, a Pakistani Facebook group. Interestingly, although the woman, who in the photograph is seen wearing a pair of jeans, also has her head covered with a scarf or hijab, which is considered as a principle of modesty among Muslim women.

Malala was pricked with scathing remarks for her wardrobe choice and even compared to Mia Khalifa – a porn star of Lebanese American descent.

However, while most of the remarks were abhorrent, thankfully there were some sane people who came to Malala's rescue and defended her right to dress up as a normal young woman. The first one to side by her was Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar who also acknowledged Malala for wearing a scarf in the pic.



For those unaware, 20-year-old Malala Yousafzai, who is an advocate for girls' education is presently studying politics, philosophy and economics at the Oxford University. In 2012, Malala had been shot by the Taliban while returning from school for defying their diktat and continuing to pursue her education.
