Default Beheading

I found this very upsetting. Interesting that it has not made national headlines.

Muzzammil Hassan, right, founder of Bridges TV, is charged with murder in the beheading of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, left, in Orchard Park.


Prominent Orchard Park man charged with beheading his wife
By Gene Warner

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community — reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

"He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead," Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said late this morning.

Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.

Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.

The killing apparently occurred some time late Thursday afternoon. Detectives still are looking for the murder weapon.

"Obviously, this is the worst form of domestic violence possible," Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said today.

Authorities say Aasiya Hassan recently had filed for divorce from her husband.

"She had an order of protection that had him out of the home as of Friday the 6th [of February]," Benz said.

Muzzammil Hassan was arraigned before Village Justice Deborah Chimes and sent to the Erie County Holding Center.

The reason this isn't all over the news is because it will make the peaceful muslims look like murderers! That is why. But if it was an american attacking a muslim in the US it wouldbe all over the news

Gee Frank - ya think?

I so wish this country would penalize murderers the way they do in third world countries. This Shkabibble chopped off his wife's head - he should endure the same horrible fate.

I don't like or trust ANY Muslim after 911. I know the 911 perps were extremists, but when all is said and done, Muslims of any form stick together like glue.

Wow. You realize that you are part of the problem too, yes?

There was a little get together here in Albuquerque after 9/11 of some Muslims just thrashing what some of them had done, laying into them and talking how these are not the teachings of Muhammad. It was open to everyone, and showed that some of them truly believe in peace, and are disgusted with what their "brothers" have done.

Believe it or not, there are good and bad in all things. Of course, I really wasn't too hot on Protestants and Catholics (I was raised Catholic) for a while there, I mean what with burning eachother and all that, and we all know Christians are devoid of sensibility when Faith is questioned, so I don't trust any of them either!

Its a real shame that this guy did this, part of the problem is that many of those on both sides (Muslim, Palestinian, Israeli, U.S.) that influence policy are less than enlightened and virtuous people.

She is not part of the problem, as the Muslim’s themselves, have created and continue, steadfast might I add, to prove that they hate us. Sure, there are good Muslims, but I do not trust them either, as they will stick to their faith before they would listen to reason. I had the chance a couple of years ago to read the Koran – it is not what most think that it is - a peacefull teaching of God.

There are bad people that call themselves “Christians” but they do not behave in the manner that the Muslims do, not even close.

I will stick by my Bible and choose to trust no one, but God. The Muslim religion, as a whole scares me.

Be careful with that intolerant "Christians are devoid of sensibility" swipe. I think Preacher and myself (among others) on here take offense at that ridiculous ad hominem.

A little history lesson, ladies and gents: the founder of Islam, Mohammed, was truly the first fundamentalist Muslim. Considering his track record of beheadings/maimings/murder/theft/deceit, I'm not surprised that other Muslims follow in his footsteps, even today.

Also--this is only second-degree murder? What does it take to qualify for first-degree murder--setting his wife on fire after beheading her? Good grief.

It is hardly ridiculous. Were I who I am spiritually now I wouldn't trust one darn Christian a couple hundred years ago, and who could blame me? Of course, those who do not preach violence -as I'm sure Preacher doesn't preach violence-, are an asset to the world.

I'm saying, its a long process, but helping to take the first step is a possibility. I mean, let's face it, with the Crusades, Inquisitions, and whatnot, the Church and Christian faith in general could have been labelled the world's greatest threat of peace a few centuries ago, and look at it now.

Oh, certainly it is a culture of violence, and I suppose "trust" is rarely warranted, but to say that every single Muslim would see you float down the river rather than possibly go against his faith is naive. Honestly, I know some Muslims who are incredible people, and the past 8 years have been a challenge.
