Dr. Boyce Watkins; Kashif Pervaiz kills wife, Black Man did it…

(ThyBlackMan.com) Kashif Parvaiz didn’t have a good relationship with his wife, Nazish Noorani.  In fact, the marriage had deteriorated so badly that divorce wasn’t enough.  Instead, he wanted to see his wife dead.

So, Kashif took matters into his own hands, setting up a murder-for-hire situation that left his wife’s dead body in the street.  Reaching for every angle he could find, Kashif first used America’s anti-Muslim sentiment to his advantage, telling police that the assailants had called him a “terrorist” as they killed his spouse.

In addition to the first lie, Parvaiz also used the prototypical media-driven  blueprint for the kind of men who might choose to kill an innocent woman for no reason:  He said that they were African American.  While he initially stated that the three assailants were of mixed race, he eventually changed his story, stating that they were all black.

To the credit of the Boontown police, they weren’t going for it.  They were initially suspicious because Nazish had sent her brother a text message stating that she “can’t talk to him cuz he abuses me … I’m so tired of this. … Someday U will find me dead, but it’s cuz of Kashi … he wants to kill me.”

Parvaiz’s decision to kill his wife and lie about it is similar to that of Charles Stuart, a Boston man who murdered his pregnant wife in 1989 and said that an African American committed the crime.  This led to a city-wide manhunt in which scores of black men were harassed by police. Susan Smith, a South Carolina woman, killed both of her children and also said that a black man committed the crime.  There are several other instances in which the “black man did it” story was told to police, with the story not holding up under further scrutiny.

The Morris County Prosecutor, Robert Bianchi, says that Parvaiz plotted with a woman, Antoinette Stephen, to commit the murder.  He said “there is obviously a relationship” between Stephen and Parvaiz. “I am not saying it is a physical relationship,” he said. “I am not saying it is a girlfriend-boyfriend relationship.”

After telling Stephen about the trouble in his marriage, Parvaiz received a text from her stating that she would “think of something.”She also said, “You hang in there. Freedom is just around ur corner.”

Situations like this one are clearly disturbing, particularly to people of color.  There are thousands of black people who’ve been incarcerated for crimes they didn’t commit, in many cases because they were the most convenient suspect.  I spoke just yesterday to a friend about a young man who was falsely accused of murder.  His struggling family mortgaged their home and spent $30,000 on his legal defense, only to have the jury deliberate just five minutes to find him not guilty.  Unfortunately, there are too many other cases where the man could not raise thousands of dollars for a legal defense, and there is no financial recourse for those who’ve gone broke trying to defend themselves.

One has to also give the police force credit for thoroughly investigating the crime and not believing the simplest story that was presented to them.  This is a reminder that there are good law enforcement officials across America who are determined to do the right thing.  At the same time, we must stop and consider how many cases there have been in which the public nature of a crime has led officers to go into the community to arrest an innocent black man with a criminal record, knowing that he wouldn’t have the ability to defend himself. For every case in which the lie was eventually brought to light, there may be quite a few others where the liar took his secret to the grave and an innocent American spent his life behind bars because of it.

America is no post-racial society, and anyone who thinks otherwise should simply pay a quick visit to the courthouse.

    MY THOUGHTS ARE WITH NAZISH’S NOORANI’S FAMILY SHE DEFINITELY DIDN’T DESERVE THIS CRUELTY AND EVIL SHE WAS JUST SO WONDERFUL,PRETTY, CARING,E.T.C. SHE HAD SO MANY GOOD QUALTIES. I’M HOPING THAT NAZISH’S KIDS REMAIN WITH HER FAMILY AND NOT THE SO-CALLED KILLER’S FAMILY WHO KNOWS WHAT HIS MUM AND DAD WILL DO TO THOSE SMALL BELOVED,CUTE AND INNOCENT KIDS,GOD FORBID. NAZISH WAS SUCH A LOVELY PERSON WHO REALLY DESERVED A BETTER LIFE, HER FAMILY WAS ALSO WONDERFUL AND REALLY NICE. I HOPE KASHIF PERVAIZ AND ANTONIETTRE STEPHEN HOPFULLY INSHALLAH DROP DEAD ONE DAY,BECAUSE THEY DON’T DESERVE TO BE ALIVE,NAZISH NEEDS TO BE ALIVE NOT THEM THE FUCKIN BASTARDS.

    It’s not just black people if you look at it it’s almost like a Pyramid Ponzi Scheme set up. This doesn’t mean for ALL the people of each individual race but this is how racism is set up. White’s at the top distrusting and they feel superior to all races, then people of Asian descent and Indians, then Mexicans, blacks, and Africans.

    Racism never died it just changed it’s look. But amongst all that we still have hate for each other within our race which is the most disgusting part of this.

    It’s always been the world against black people, most of these nonblack minorities are just as racist and hateful to black folks as most whites have been.
