‘Positive Light’ Muslim Beheaded His Wife

From the Buffalo News:

Aasiya Zubair (left), wife of Bridges TV CEO Mo Hassan (right) played an instrumental role in the creation of Bridges TV since she came up with the idea for the network.

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…

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…

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.

Isn’t irony ironic?

    Look at things from his perspective. He was probably just annoyed that our government doesn’t allow talaq, or Islamic divorce by a man for any reason with a sentence. Surely we could have avoided this tragedy by talking with “positive Muslims” and allowing them to use Shariah law to “positively” resolve domestic disputes. Same for the rest of the world. There would be no need to behead infidels if they just accepted dhimmi status and stopped blaspheming or asking inconvenient questions. Who needs a Bill of Rights when you have the religion of peace?

    (major sarcasm)

    Friendly muslim husband who beheaded wife, promoted terrorism on his Bridges TV show.


    2nd degree murder? There is a paper-trail this should be 1st degree murder. Restraining order the Quran. Obviously, ollah Obama’s election has gave signal that these barbarians can do what they want in the name of “love thy neighbor.”
    2nd degree murder?
    Why doesn’t the prosecution “hold her head up to the jury”, and point out it took some thought and effort. And he knew he did wrong because he called the police. No doubt he will have muslims protesting for his release, and ollah Obama will step in, release him, and allow him to go back to his country. Freedom of religion right?
    God help and save this country. The enemy is within us, and out of control.

    Now’s the time to serve a warrant and get his computer, and find out the real truth behind this terrorist. He wants to increase the population from 2% to 50% and make Islam the nation’s religion. Would it far-fetched if ollah Obama and nallah Nancy do this. National health care, lower immigration standards, and bring and release the pig bay prisoners. If there motto is to pretend to be America’s friends, then kill American’s… Can you trust anyone who “loves they neighbor”

    The only consolation that I can think of regarding this barbaric act is that the wife is in a better place now. And away from the presence of this monster.

    No shit Frank? Honestly, I laughed spit all over my screen when I read this.

    AP didn’t carry this homegrown terrorist act. Guess, AP, UK, ollah Obama, napolo Nancy Pelosie, just want to believe in fairytales.

  11. canary says:

    Huffington post says all the more to keep Bridges.TV going to honor the head that thought up the idea. Yeah right dip wit. That’ll help him pay for an attorney. Obviously, they don’t practice what they preach. The truth will come out, and it did. The Quran sucks. The Quran says they are suppose to cut the head off of anyone that trys to leave or doesn’t believe. Why doesn’t Huffington Post guess why they hate American’s Freedoms. They want to take our freedom and make us believe what they do. Huffington Post must agree with all the anti-Jewish remarks too.

    • GuppyNblue says:

      Reading their comments I noticed how some of them were trying to place the blame on men or religion in general. Mr. Hassan himself could write them stating that he did it with Allah’s blessing and they would probably claim he was put up to it.

      I think they can so easily twist reality because they haven’t suffered any consequences in their lives. Ironically, this is because they’ve been living in a safe and civilized nation (up till now). Let them move to Iran and face reality. I mean real reality!

  12. sheehanjihad says:

    Islam. Muslims. Death. There is nothing more to say.

  13. brad says:

    Again, Islam on a collision course with feminism and the left.

    I can’t wait to stand by and watch…..

  14. sheehanjihad says:

    feminists will find out the hard way that if they so much as suggest any misogynistic accusations against the religion of peace….if they arent arrested and charged with a hate crime, they will be targeted, and killed for disagreeing with any muslim.

    Feminists keep thinking the muslims will play by their tired old rules of succumbing to their angry protests and articles in various media outlets. Once the first few are found beaten, raped and beheaded for their efforts….the rest of the vaunted “feminists” will shut the eff up, and go into hiding.

    The left? HA!! They will be happily slaughtered wholesale by muslims who have no more use for their stupidity….and they will all be standing there gob smacked at the fact that they were used so easily, and led to their slaughter so easily…..probably to accept a “muslim peace and brotherhood” award…..where they will be decapitated and thrown into a dumpster with their fellow dupes.

    These people have NO CLUE who they are dealing with.

    • canary says:

      Excellent point. Why wasn’t the terrorist also charged with “hate crime” as it falls within the legal definition. Aside the absurd 2nd degree murder. It was 1st degree, and a chance to let the public understand this murderous religion taking over the world.

  15. catie says:

    How come we never hear from the feminists when these things happen? I asked my moron feminazi neighbor about that last year when that Muslim father killed his two daughters in TX and she says “Well, people shouldn’t be protesting in front of an abortion clinic either”. They have no answers they are fools. They’re always quiet about things like this.
    The religion of peace-indeed.

    • Barbie says:

      What does protesting in front of an abortion clinic have to do with the Muslim father who killed his two daughters? Why would she even answer like that? There’s never any logical connection or logical basis for libs and their comments – They just open their mouths and ‘feelings’ (mostly hysterical feelings) fall out. These femi-nazis are for women the way the human rights organizations are for human rights – only when it suits their particular political agenda, it’s never based on principles because they have none. HYPOCRITES>

    • jobeth says:

      Just read this post to my husband and I ask the same question as Barbie. What does one thing have to do with the other?

      But as a answer to Catie’s question, he commented he thinks the reason why they (feminazis) don’t stand up for these women is that they are afraid they are next. That THEY would be beheaded for saying anything against the muslims.

      Ummm, he just may have something there.

      (Sorry sheehanjihad, I read your comment after posting this. Looks like you and my husband are both of the same brilliant mind! :-D )

      “Me thinks” we are going to see more and more of this in the future.

    • proreason says:

      I think the reason femanazis don’t speak out against islamic atrocities against women is because they are more interested in their “right” to have sex without consequences than they are in the human rights of others, including women all over the world being slaughered for being….women.

      To protect their “right” to have sex without consequences, they are willing to enter into political alliances with any group any time. In fact, if Hitler had furthered their agenda, they would have have willingly remained silent about the atrocities of the Nazi regime.

      And this is but one example of liberalism in general. It is always about me me me. The ONLY time the rights of anybody else comes into play is when there is an advantage to the liberal’s self-interest, and if the advantage goes away, the alliance goes away. In a nutshell, the only real principle they have is immediate furtherance of their own self-interest.

    • wardmama4 says:

      Because the feminazis have only one issue worth even a thought – abortion uber alles. Since 1973 have invested every single dime and ounce of passion onto that.

      I remember watching the The Genesis Awards on Animal Planet – watching with disgust Doris Roberts gushing on about how her tv show (Everybody Loves Raymond) did a non-turkey Thanksgiving show – as I almost hurled I thought how pathetic America has become to allow a woman who flew in from a Abortion rally in DC to speak like that – gives a damn more about a stupid bird than a human baby. I haven’t watched those awards since – even though I am passionate about our domestic animal pets.

      And that is the essence of the problem with the feminazis – they are heartless, stupid base women.

    no veil, no burlap bag, lipstick, smiling at a photographer, filed for divorce

    what else could the man do?

    Went to the BridgesTV website
    and found

    “This website is temporarily down for maintenance”

    Maintenance?????? Who’s maintance? She’s dead and he’s in jail!

    Can’t they just be honest about even one thing….as in…

    ‘This website is permanately down for a BEHEADING!’

    • canary says:

      You can still easily google the site, press releases, kiddie vidio’s, shopping, etc. at least yesterday you could. Only the home page was under maintenance. I did notice that Ford Auto’s ad came off fast.

    • jobeth says:

      Thanks, Canary, found it!

  19. wardmama4 says:

    My first thought was did someone in The One’s ™ administration bring down the plane to knock this story off of the front pages?!?

    Sorry but since Nov.4th I’ve been highly skeptical of most everything – especially if Congress, The One ™, politics or immigrants are involved. . .

    This is great – and probably will happen more and more in the near future. Combine it (immigrants not assimlating and bringing their 3rd century practices with them to America) with the Generational Theft Act passed yesterday and the wild west drug cartel free-for-all going on at the southern border – and thanks to DC, America will have the 3rd World income and the violence of Dafur, Gaza and Kabul to make us just another one of the 3rd World countries in no time.

  20. canary says:

    Where’s a feminazi when you need one. Good points ya all. I’ll bet 72 ollah Obama coins that this will get no media coverage, when the muslims protest his trial in the likes of UK’s terrorists. They wouldn’t want their news to suggest to American’s not to move there, when they only charge this man with 2nd degree murder, and slap him on the wrist. More that move there, more papers sell, and more money. Lets just keep pampering the terrorists.

  21. DoctorRock says:

    Let’s not rush to judgement here. This happened in Buffalo, right? Where O.J. played ball?
    Perhaps Poor Mo’s just a Bills fan. Hey – is that Commerce Secretary gig still open?

    Mark Steyn discusses MSM’s handling of the beheading:

    “When poor Mrs. Hassan’s husband launched his TV network to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims, he had no difficulty generating column inches, as far afield as The Columbus Dispatch, The Detroit Free Press, The San Jose Mercury News, Variety, NBC News, the Voice of America, and the Canadian Press. The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle put the couple on the front page under the headline “Infant TV Network Unveils The Face Of Muslim News”.

    But, when Muzzammil Hassan kills his wife and “the face of Muslim news” is unveiled rather more literally, detached from her corpse at his TV studios, it’s all he can do to make the local press — page 26 of Newsday, plus The Buffalo News, and a very oddly angled piece in the usually gung-ho New York Post, “Buffalo Beheading: Money Woe Spurred Slay”.

    Oh, really? He beheaded her for some goofy clause in the insurance policy?”

    A little more info on this is now coming out:

    Beheaded woman’s sister: I might have heard deadly confrontation – CNN.com

    — A woman who was beheaded near Buffalo, New York — allegedly by her husband — may have been on the phone with her sister when she was killed.

    Asma Firfirey of suburban Cape Town, South Africa, told the Afrikaans newspaper Die Burger that she was on the phone with her sister, Aasiya Zubair Hassan, last week when she heard Hassan tell her husband to calm down. She said she heard Hassan say the two could talk about their impending divorce the following day.

    Then she heard something that sounded like her sister struggling to breathe, she said….

    …[Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz] told CNN on Tuesday that police had responded to several domestic violence calls at the couple’s address, but no one was arrested.

    Firfirey, as well as a Pakistani woman identifying herself as another of Aasiya Hassan’s sisters, characterized her as living in fear.

    Firfirey said the last time she saw her sister was in May 2008, when she visited South Africa. When she arrived, she was badly injured, and Firfirey’s family paid the equivalent of about $3,000 for her to be treated, she said.

    Aasiya Hassan returned to America, she said, because she wanted to complete her MBA degree and “didn’t want to leave her children with that monster.” She said she calls Muzzammil Hassan “the fat man with evil eyes.”

    Aasiya Hassan would have graduated March 6, Firfirey said.

    A woman in Pakistan using the name Salma Zubair posted on a blog that she is the sister of “this brutally murdered woman.”

    “She lived her 8 years of married life with fear in heart,” Zubair wrote. “He had already frightened her enough that she couldn’t muster up her guts and leave him, and when she finally did gather that much strength he killed her so brutally. She lived to protect her children from this man and his family and she died doing so.”

    She said Aasiya Hassan “had always been a very loving person, not even one person in this world can say a small wrong word about her … she had always dreamed a life of a happily married family, which she did her best to achieve.”

    Both women said they were worried about the couple’s children, ages 4 and 6. Firfirey said they were being cared for by a colleague of the couple. Muzzammil Hassan also has two older children from a previous marriage….


    Another report somewhere else talked about how the murderer is “very upset, practically in shock about his wife’s death.”

    Poor man.
