‘My first wife is upset a little’ – Kyrgyz scholar on polygamy

When a religious leader in Kyrgyzstan broadcast he had married a second wife, and told other men to follow suit, it’s no surprise there was mixed reaction on social media.

Chubak aji Jalilov revealed in a video, posted by Nasaat Media on YouTube, “I have not divorced from my first wife. She is a little bit angry now.”

However, a repost of the video has been viewed 60,000 times – rising by about 5,000 views per hour (at time of writing) – since the footage was published.
