The founder of a Muslim-oriented New York television station was convicted Monday of beheading his wife in 2009 in the studio the couple had opened to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan never denied that he killed Aasiya Hassan inside the suburban Buffalo station the couple established to promote cultural understanding. A jury deliberated for one hour before rejecting his claim that the killing was justified because he was long abused by and afraid of his wife.
Yeah, that was kind of a tough sell. But good job countering those negative stereotypes, Mo.
I don’t have the channel this genius founded, Bridges TV, but there’s no mention of the whole thing on their website. Weird.
