The founder of a US Muslim TV network has been charged over the beheading of his wife, media reports say.

Muzzammil Hassan, 44, is accused of second degree murder of Aasiya Hassan, whose body was found last week at the TV station in New York state.


The rest of the story here.

I understand that when faced with a divorce there are some hard feelings, but beheading his own wife? Confused

Islam the Religion of Peace vs. humanity 1:0.

Quote:
But far deeper in this story than the domestic violence that plagues all societies is the male domination and dehumanization of women, which the method and rage of this murder demonstrates. This animal likely felt religiously empowered by a religious, political, and cultural ideology (Islamism) which placed him in his own mind in a position of power over his wife.
from here. Also, this is just days after a polish engineer was killed in Pakistan.

The article I read said the TV station was set up to "improve the Image of Islam in the USA."

Of course its never funny when somebody decapitates their significant other. But I did have to have a little snicker at the magnitude of the founder's failure to support the aims of his creation.

Another misleading article, as if you really go down to the facts, this was not an Islamic execution, it was a crime of passion where the husband murdered his wife:

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - A shocking and gruesome story of a T.V. station owner's wife, found decapitated at the Bridge's Muslim T.V. network in Orchard Park.

In pictures of happier times, 37-year-old Aasiya Zubair and her 44-year-old husband Mo Hassan, who founded Bridges T.V.

Thursday evening, police converge on the station's Orchard Park studio and office.

"The worst that I've seen, yeah," said Andrew Benz, Orchard Park Police Chief.

Orchard Park Police chief Andrew Benz is talking about the crime scene where Assiya Zubair's body was found.

Police tell News 4 the only suspect in this case is the victim's husband, who walked into police headquarters in Orchard Park Thursday evening to report his wife was dead.

It's being called a brutal murder.

"She was decapitated,yes," said Benz.

Zubair was found in the hallway. The mission of Bridges TV is to foster understanding between cultures and diverse populations. According to police, the couple had trouble getting along.

Benz said, "There has been some history. I believe Mrs. Hassan, the victim, had recently filed for divorce and had served the papers on Mr. Hassan."

Police say Zubair and her husband were parents to four children. The marital issues came to light recently with police going to the couple's Big Tree Road in Orchard Park last Friday. ApparentlyZubair felt she was in danger.

"We had been down to their house on Friday, the 6th to serve an order of protection," said Benz.

Police say Hassan moved out that day. Bridges T.V. staffers aren't commenting. The website list Hassan as the CEO and his wife was the general manager. It's not clear if she was still working at Bridges.

"Simply because you get an order or protection, I don't think you can put your guard down and say I am safe now," Benz said.

The Erie County Holding Center is where Hassan is being held on a second degree murder charge.

There's no bail at this point.

Authorities aren't saying anything about a possible motive.

They are trying to contact the victim's family in Pakistan.


I will never forget one evening when I woke up to severe screams, not knowing what it was about, and then terrible thumping sounds from a distance. I rushed to my balcony at about 2:00 a.m. in the morning and then saw lights on in a house about a block away, screams continuing. Then immediately afterwards sirens and police. And lots of commotion. A man had been attacking his wife and she had been loaded into an ambulance. This had nothing to do with religion. It was in Johannesburg South Africa. Something like that is not religiously motivated. But comes from human nature and hot passion.

The next morning when I was on my balcony and thinking how peaceful it was, all of a sudden I heard an ambulance and police sirens again, going to the same place. I then heard the guy had apparently committed suicide. Nothing uglier and more traumatic than domestic violence. Has very little to do with religion.

It's another thing to beat or strangle your loved one in passion but decapitation isn't exactly an easy thing to do. Imagine all the blood, just imagine the head suddenly coming off... Gore.

I think there is difference between a crazed man beating, strangling his wife and a man that cuts her head off. It's like comparing a violent husband that beats his wife to a guy that ties his wife up, whips her, pours salt into her wounds etc. One act is violent, the other is sick. One is impulsive, the other is crazed beyond help. Same motives but so very different outcomes.

Maybe it's just me, but if my loved one hurt me really, really, extremely bad, I might hit her but I can't imagine taking her head off... I couldn't do that to a person I loved so dearly even though they hurt me.

Both are crazy and violent. And very sick and awful. If you read the articles thoroughly you can see that the couple is very westernized. Something must have snapped in this guy's head in a very bad and crazy way. It sometimes happen when people get rejected. I'm really sorry it happened. They looked like a hansome couple with lots going for them. They had started a Radio Station together, het four children, they definitely were not extremists in any way. Just turned completely dark and ugly. Probably one should not make complete judgment until all the facts have been heard.

Whether or not he killed her BECAUSE he's Muslim, I think everyone can agree that this will reflect badly on the idea of Islamic "moderates" in general. People will think, if the one guy who's trying to make Muslims look better ends up beheading his own wife, what are all the others like?

Not that this is necessarily a good thing to think, but...that's how people's minds work. If he'd been more passionate about his mission, maybe he would've handled his anger at his wife some more culturally-sanctioned way.

Good point. Muslims are already being looked at critically in Western countries, so if something as horrible as this would happen it would be judged by association. Think one can have an understanding for that. Probably also good to know that if this had happened in a Muslim country, that it people would have been even more horrified. Where I am there is very little violence, something like this would have been dealt with very severely.
