A muslim who started a New York TV station to counter negative impressions of Islam has been convicted for beheading his wife. Muzzammit ‘Mo’ Hassan and his wife Aasiya started the TV station after 9/11 to promote cultural understanding.
Aasiya was seeking a divorce. She left their children aged 4 and 6 in the car while she ran into the TV station to drop off his laundry – and was attacked by a knife-wielding Hassan. He had bought two hunting knives an hour earlier. The stocky six-footer stabbed her more than 40 times before beheading her. Some of the attack was caught on surveillance video camera.
Prosecutor Colleen Curtin Gable said it was possible that Aasiya was still conscious as Hassan began to behead her.
Aasiya had filed several police reports of spousal abuse, but in court Hassan said he was the abused one, but had kept quiet about it. He claimed the killing was justified and that he was afraid of his wife. He will be sentenced on March 9. The children have been sent to Pakistan.
As we point out in our book 'Cults and Isms: True or False?' the Koran condones wife beating. 'If you fear high-handedness from your wives...when you go to bed, then hit them.' That is from the Koran, Sura (Chapter) 4, line 34, the direct teaching of the 'prophet' Mohammed. The Bible teaches the exact opposite: 'Husbands, love your wives...'
