But the noteworthy point was that in none of these pictures the bride’s brother Zayn could be seen. So where was he? There was no clarification on that aspect but he probably might be in the USA furthering his career. His schedules might be too busy to make it to the UK for his little sister’s marriage.

Zayn is known to be paying a visit to his family in Bradford regularly. But why the family did not wait for his visit to do the wedding of their daughter is a big mystery? It seems like they hurried up on the wedding. They did not even wait for the teenage Safaa to reach the marriageable age to get married.

Zayn has not even commented or liked on the wedding pictures. Is there some family tension out there? But Zayn’s ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid has liked the wedding pictures posted online by mother Trisha.

Netizens react to the early marriage of Safaa Malik

Many social media users were not happy on learning that Safaa was just 17 and got married. They were upset that she has been married off so soon as a teenager. It is illegal to be married before attaining the age of 18 in the UK. She was not even an adult when she has wed her boyfriend Martin Tiser.

There has been a lot of criticisms on social media concerning this aspect of the marriage and the bride’s age. But her boyfriend-turned-husband took to social media to thank all their fans for their support. He wrote:

“Thanks to all of you who support us. We so appreciate about that. But bullying us it’s not good guys. Stop it Saffy reading all your comments!!! @safaamalik.”

Zayn has one elder sister named Doniya and two younger sisters named Wallyha and Safaa. But he has remained mum on this wedding. This always happens! When it comes to family matters, people do not want to discuss it in public and we respect that.
