Bridges TV: Disconnecting people through beheading

The “Mission statement” has not changed. It still reads, “Bridges TV aims to foster a greater understanding among many cultures and diverse populations… (DA’AWA)  we seek to become a unifying force that can help people understand our diverse world through education and entertainment.”

Man who beheaded wife pleads “innocent”

If I was in an Islamic country, this wouldn’t be a big deal, stupid kuffar

Unrepentant: “Man accused of beheading wife arraigned,” from the AP, JW

BUFFALO – The founder of a Muslim-American television station pleaded not guilty Friday to beheading his estranged wife.


Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan, 44, is charged with one count of second-degree murder for the Feb. 12 death of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan at the offices of Bridges TV in the suburb of Orchard Park.

The Pakistani-born businessman, who has been in custody since reporting his wife’s death soon after it happened, remained held without bail.

The proof of guilt in this case is strong,” prosecutor Colleen Curtin Gable told Erie County Judge Thomas Franczyk. She cited alleged admissions, forensic evidence and “strong motive evidence.” Aasiya Hassan was stabbed multiple times and decapitated less than a week after having her husband served with divorce papers.

“We believe he would and could flee the jurisdiction if released,” Gable said in arguing against bail.

Defense attorney James Harrington did not oppose the position.

Hassan did not speak during his brief arraignment, except to tell the judge he understood the proceedings.

Harrington declined to comment afterward.

The case against Hassan is striking in its irony. Muzzammil and Aasiya Hassan launched the Bridges TV network in 2004, saying they wanted to counter negative stereotypes and media portrayals of Muslims.

Harrington has dismissed suggestions by some that the beheading was a so-called “honor killing,” rooted in cultural notions about women’s subordination to men.

District Attorney Frank Sedita said Muzzammil Hassan’s two teenagers by a previous marriage and the two young children he had with the victim are living with relatives.

Bridges TV was off the air in the days following the killing, but has sinceresumed broadcasting.

  1. Like the sands through the hourglass, the islamic soapie goes on and on, with plenty of
    sponsors and their dollars. Best reality TV of them all – no day without an action packed
    episode of beheadings, explosions, stonings and enough grievances to occupy an army
    of lawyers and judges for millennia.

  2. Folks, give the law a chance – if the law is going to convict this person then do not write anything here that can be used by a defence team to claim the accused will not get a fair trial.

  3. Islam is as Islam does.

    Every hour Islam is like a Tardis box of Jihadis you never know whether you’ll get a rape, a beheading, a 727 in your office, dirty bomb, a driveby shooting, whining, a lawsuit, a fatwa, …

  4. And in other news:

    Winds of Jihad regular Inyat Bunglawala arrested in connection with a stabbing incident at his home.

    No matter how much ultra glossy positive publicity/propaganda this lot create in their attempts to fool the public into believing muslims are a happy-go-lucky lot, their true nature always emerges to re-open our eyes.

    I raise my glass to Bunglawala and his sterling effort in the anti-jihad, for his antics will provide more of the already abundant ammo to further our cause!

  5. OT, but part of the soap opera …

    POLICE have confirmed that a man gunned down in a brazen daylight drive-by shooting in Sydney was alleged crime boss Abdul Qadier Darwiche.,22606,25189687-5005962,00.html
