An American Muslim television executive was found guilty in Buffalo, New York on Monday of beheading his wife in 2009. Muzzammil Hassan stabbed his wife over 40 times and then beheaded her just days after she filed for a divorce. Medical records showed that his wife, Aasiya Zubair Hassan, had been physically abused over a period of years.
How pathetically ironic that Hassan was the owner and operator of a local Muslim-oriented television station founded to promote a better understanding of the Muslim community in Buffalo. And take note that this heinous honor killing was perpetrated by an upper class American Muslim man.
Prosecutor Colleen Curtin Gable said Hassan bought two hunting knives less than an hour before the attack, parked his luxury vehicle out of view at the station and then hid in wait inside. During a 37-second frenzy that began when Hassan’s wife walked through the door, he stabbed her more than 40 times in the face, back and chest and decapitated her. Surveillance video captured some of the attack inside a darkened hallway. The Blaze
It was also reported that Aasiya Hassan had been speaking on her cell phone to her sister at the onset of the attack.
Asma Firfirey of suburban Cape Town, South Africa, told the Afrikaans newspaper Die Burger that she was on the phone with her sister, Aasiya Zubair Hassan, last week when she heard Hassan tell her husband to calm down. She said she heard Hassan say the two could talk about their impending divorce the following day. Then she heard something that sounded like her sister struggling to breathe, she said. “I can only imagine how scared and emotional she must have been before she died. CNN
