    Muslim TV executive in N.Y. awaits murder trial in death of his wife

    updated 12:44 p.m. PT, Fri., Jan. 22, 2010
    BUFFALO, N.Y. - The founder of an Islam-oriented television station who is accused of beheading his wife was abused by her for years, according to his lawyer, who said Friday he will pursue a defense combining that justification as well as psychiatric claims.

    Defense attorneys' claims that Muzzammil Hassan was victimized by his wife drew a blunt response at a hearing Friday from District Attorney Frank Sedita.

    "He chopped her head off," Sedita said. "He chopped her head off. That's all I have to say about Mr. Hassan's apparent defense that he was a battered spouse."

    .....

    attorney Frank Bogulski said outside the courtroom. "He was the victim. She was verbally abusive. She had humiliated him."

    It may only take one traditional Muslim to hang the jury though - This sounds like an "honor killing", which is considered justified in some Mid-Eastern cultures.

    Constant verbal abuse as grounds for divorce, ok. For beheading your spouse, not so much.

    The defense is a bunch of malarky. The couple had a history of domestics in which the husband was the suspect, and the wife filed for divorce shortly before the murder. There were previous wives who also divorced him after he reportedly abused them.

    Maybe he would say that actually they were abusing him, and he just has really bad luck and keeps marrying different abusive women.

    I hope his attorney "verbally abuses " him. I'll supply Hassan with the butter knife.

    Hmmm, I wonder if this idiot jackass is related to the POS from the Ft. Hood massacre? Same tribal family name, no?

    Hassan, 45, is charged with one count of second-degree murder in the Feb. 12 death of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan at the offices of Bridges TV, the station the Pakistan-born couple established in 2004 to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims.
    Looks like he just failed in that department.

    Honor killings do not work in this country. Religion or not. If you don't like that, go back to whatever country you came from, and stay the hell out of ours.
