Today in Cis Privilege: Husband of Pakistani woman who was stoned to death murdered his first wife

The husband of a pregnant Pakistani woman bludgeoned to death outside a courthouse murdered his first wife, he told AFP on Thursday, in a twist to a story that has shocked rights activists.

Farzana Parveen was murdered on Tuesday outside the High Court in the eastern city of Lahore by more than two dozen attackers, including her brother and father, for marrying against her family’s wishes.

The brazen, brutal nature of the killing, in broad daylight in the centre of Pakistan’s second largest city, has triggered outrage around the world.

Now Parveen’s husband Mohammad Iqbal, 45, has admitted killing his first wife.
