Talk about Stereotyping Extremists! The founder of a Muslim TV Station in New York has been accused with the murder of his wife. 44yo Muzzammil Hassan has been charged with 2nd degree murder with the beheading of his wife, Aasiya Hassan. Her body was found at the News Station - Bridges TV.

Muzzammil Hassan was charged with second-degree murder after police found the decapitated body of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, at the Bridges TV station in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park, said Andrew Benz, Orchard Park's police chief.

Hassan was arrested Thursday.

His wife filed for divorce February 6, and police had responded to several domestic violence calls at the couple's home, Benz said.

On Monday, Benz told CNN that Hassan went directly to the police station after his wife's death Thursday and confessed to killing her. However, Benz on Tuesday denied that he'd said Hassan confessed.

Hassan told Orchard Park police his wife was dead, led officers to her body and was arrested Thursday, Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita III told CNN on Tuesday. Hassan is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

Attempts to reach an attorney for Hassan were unsuccessful Monday, and his family didn't return calls from CNN.

He had two children, 4 and 6, with his wife. He had two other children, 17 and 18, from his previous marriage. Link


Bridges TV is the first English-language cable channel targeting Muslims inside the United States. One goal of Bridges TV is to counter Muslim stereotypes because after 9/11, many negative portrayals of Muslims were on the rise.

Unfortunately, this incredulous beheading of his wife does not help soften the Muslim Extremist stereotype.
The treatment of women in many extreme Muslim countries have long been documented and portrayed as inhumane and degrading. Women are beyond 2nd class citizens. They are even place below animals and pets. Women can be beaten, raped and subjected to any cruelty without persecution. Women have no rights, no protection, no justice.

Muzzammil has been charged with 2nd degree murder.
I can already see his lawyers conjuring up the Koran and its extreme teachings to rationize his behavior.

Why must the religion be highlighted in this piece of news? Many other gruesome killings has been reported but we do not read or see headlines like Christians kills again, Buddhist kills, Atheist kills etc... Koran or any other Holy Book do NOT teach killings. The treating of women as a 2nd class citizen is NOT based on religion of any kind it is all down to culture and way of life.

This is Not cultural! It is so fundamentally religious. Women have no rights in certain Muslim countries. They are banned to hold jobs, cannot get education and must follow the husband. She cannot even legally divorce her husband unless he initiates first.

How else do you explain American women who grew up in the States and marries a muslim man? She is wearing a burka! Its not her culture and certainly not the culture of America. The Koran specifically have the women cover herself.

Culture can be changed. Fundamental Religion cannot!
