Renowned activist for women education Malala Yousafzai has successfully been accepted to Oxford University for undergraduate studies after acquiring her A-level result.
Yousafzai recently commenced her studies at the prestigious Oxford University - five years from the day that she was shot by the Taliban for campaigning for girls’ education.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate tweeted last week, saying, “5 years ago, I was shot in an attempt to stop me from speaking out for girls’ education. Today, I attend my first lectures at Oxford.”

However, all hell broke lose when the 2o-year-old was spotted wearing a jeans and top with her head covered with a dupatta.
Some bashed Malala for her 'shocking' choice of wardrobe.
want a nobel prize and getting admission into Oxford University? Step 1: get shot :P #MalalaYousafzai. so much for women rights advocacy lol— Byhram Khan (@byhramkhan) October 10, 2017
While some went as low as calling her a foreign conspiracy once again, merely on her dressing, others came out in her support.
What #Malala wore in UK, is pretty common in Pakistan as well. Stop creating a fuss about it. Let others live their life, at least fir once.— Arsalan Ahmed Jaraal (@arsalanjaraal) October 15, 2017
Ok now our nation is busy in making silly comments on #Malala 's dressing.! Live and let others live. Please get a life.!— Ayesha A. (@DrAyeshaAshfaq) October 15, 2017
A nation that doesn’t have enough electricity, food or water resources but it debates about what a woman should and shouldn’t wear #Malala— Saad Kaiser Khan (@SaadKaiser) October 15, 2017
If you are going to bash #Malala , might as well stay quiet. Nobody wants to hear your verbal diarrhoea.— Raabya (@RaabyaZahidKhan) October 15, 2017
What makes us scratch our heads is the fact that a woman is still judged on her wardrobe in this time and age.
