I was reading a story from the Buffalo News and couldn’t help thinking about the old Salem cigarette commercial and the jingle, you can take Salem out of the country but, you can’t take the country out of Salem …
It would be funny if the ending weren’t so tragic. Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and CEO of Bridges TV, a company he began in 2004. His stated goal was to “help portray Muslims in a more positive light.” You know, all of that cultural baggage from the old country, honor killings, child marriage, bigamy, and so on. Hassan was certain he could change America’s perception of Muslims if he could only let them see the true face of Islam.
Hassan’s wife Aasiya, had recently filed for divorce from her husband. Hassam’s response? Well cut the ungrateful b*tch’s head off, naturally …
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….
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.
