It's time to address what it means to be an American and to live in our very complex and diverse society.Â The first thing it means is that you must abide by the laws of our nation.Â Those laws supercide any culural or religious beliefs you may have.
It obvious that Mr. Muzzammil Hassan believes otherwise.Â Instead of getting a good divorce lawyer like the over 50% of married people do here in the United States, he choose to bypass the courts and handle the situation in his own way.
Well Mr. Muzzammil, you are about to face justice United States style.Â Unlike Pakistan, Gaza, Afganistan and the many other countries that practice and condone beheadings and honor killings, the United Staes justice system frounds upon it.
You will be locked up.Â No bail will be granted.Â You will be tried.Â You will be convicted. And you will spend the rest of your natural life behind bars.Â
And do you Mr. Muzzammil want to know the reason why?Â Here it is in a nutshell.
"In The United States Beheading Is Unacceptable Under Any Circumstances.Â Good Grief!
Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband Â— an influential member of the local Muslim community Â— reported her death to police Thursday.
Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.
"He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead," Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said late this morning.
Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.
Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.
The killing apparently occurred some time late Thursday afternoon. Detectives still are looking for the murder weapon.
"Obviously, this is the worst form of domestic violence possible," Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said today.
Authorities say Aasiya Hassan recently had filed for divorce from her husband.
"She had an order of protection that had him out of the home as of Friday the 6th [of February]," Benz said.
Muzzammil Hassan was arraigned before Village Justice Deborah Chimes and sent to the Erie County Holding Center.
