Good lord, the story from the other day gets even worse, if such a thing is possible

Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) — The husband of Farzana Parveen, the Pakistani woman stoned to death for refusing to participate in an arranged marriage, told CNN he killed his first wife so he could marry Parveen.

Authorities said the first wife was killed six years ago.

“I wanted to send a proposal to Farzana so I killed my wife,” Mohammad Iqbal said Thursday in an interview with CNN.

Zulfiqar Hameed, district inspector general for the Punjab police, said Iqbal’s son from the first marriage alerted police to the slaying six years ago.

Iqbal was arrested but later released on bail because his son forgave him, Hameed said.




I mean, seriously.

Sometimes a little cultural imperialism might be a pretty damned good thing, m’kay?

    Oh, well, if his son FORGAVE him…

    Unbelievable. I really wish women in this country would focus on helping their sisters living in places where anything, literally ANYTHING, can be done to them. Another big story in India today – two women gang raped and hanged. I’m not going to claim life here is perfect, but women have it a HELL of a lot better here than in many other places on earth.

    The nasty two-legged sows that dare call themselves “feminists” could care less about the plight of women around the world. They only care about feeding their own mountainous egos by creating fake wars on women and fighting them with fake weapons such as hashtags.

    Put a herd of those misandrists in a room with Mohammed Iqbal and they would jump into burqas and dummy up so fast they’d break the speed of sound (and probably a few floorboards.)

    Wondering how he worded the marriage proposal: “I love you so much I murdered my wife”? As Lenny Briscoe once said while showing crime scene photos to the fiance of a murderer: “These are photos of Wife Number 1 and Wife Number 2. Are you sure you want to be Wife Number 3??”

    Dr Alice, what you have touched on in your comment above is very true and the Women’s Movement in the US could, if its leaders chose, have significant impact around the world, in terms of women’s rights. The fact of the matter, however, is that the Women’s Movement in the US is simply an extension of the Progressive Movement and if the interests of the latter are not served, then they are not motivated to pursue. In short, the Women’s Movement has little to do with women.

    I’ve been resisting writing a post about this and other, related, matters… but it has to be said in brief, here:

    The Modern Women’s Movement doesn’t condemn these things for one reason: in a place that they can’t bear to visit, deep down inside, they are on the same side as these monsters. They have the same goal – to control what is and is not permissible for women to be and do – they only disagree on the methods (physical vs. psychological).
