If you’re married to him…
Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan, founder and CEO of Bridges TV, an Islamist channel designed to present moderate Islam to diverse audiences, has been arrested for beheading his wife after she filed for divorce. Hassan was given an award in 2007 by the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Imagine if he was a Televangelist!
Mark Steyn is on the cutting edge of the story in his latest piece, “Headless Body in Gutless Press“
When poor Mrs. Hassan’s husband launched his TV network to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims, he had no difficulty generating column inches, as far afield as The Columbus Dispatch, The Detroit Free Press, The San Jose Mercury News, Variety, NBC News, the Voice of America, and the Canadian Press. The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle put the couple on the front page under the headline “Infant TV Network Unveils The Face Of Muslim News”.
But, when Muzzammil Hassan kills his wife and “the face of Muslim news” is unveiled rather more literally, detached from her corpse at his TV studios, it’s all he can do to make the local press — page 26 of Newsday, plus The Buffalo News, and a very oddly angled piece in the usually gung-ho New York Post, “Buffalo Beheading: Money Woe Spurred Slay“.
Here’s the formerly happy couple…As you can see, they are the definition of “moderates.”
He only went slightly overboard from what the Quran told him to do…
Give him a Sharia court, and they’re likely to find him innocent.
