New York man found guilty of murder in wife's be.ing


news.blogs.cnn.com

A New York jury on Monday found Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan guilty of second-degree murder for the 2009 be.ing of his wife.

His legal adviser, Jeremy Schwartz, said that Hassan, who made closing arguments on his own behalf, may appeal the verdict.

Hassan, who founded a TV network aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes, went to a police station in February 2009 in the Buffalo, New York, suburb of Orchard Park and told officers his wife was dead, police have said. Aasiya Hassan had been decapitated.

How ironic that Hassan founded a network which was specifically aimed at countering the stereotypes of Muslims is charged in the be.ing of his wife. Be.ings are one of the stereotypes which have been associated in a negative fashion with Muslims. Since the chilling video of Nick Bergs decapitation made it's way to viewers on the internet, many people think of Muslims as a bloodthirsty group who have blatant disregard of human life.
While I am not familiar with Mr. Hassans work, I find it saddening that he added fodder to that argument rather than show the majority of Muslims are peaceful humanitarians.

worst way to die ever, cant imagine the pain involved in having your 'noggin' ripped off your shoulders. Suppose you'd only feel it once. Turned down a job in afghanistan with fluor corp. wanting plumbers, because I feared I'd get snatched... and be the next video be.ing scene.

Nasty.

Nothing new here folks, just the adherents of the religion of "peace" at it again.

When will people wake up and realize how brainwashed and deranged these people are???

I wonder what would happen or for that matter how many things would be banned if we took away everything that has been used to kill someone.

There would be no furniture in your house , no chairs, irons, saucepans, knives, rope, chains, OMG the list is endless.

Sounds pretty damn accurate to me...

Yeah ok, and George Bush is a saint!

How can you deny that this religious cult (extremists) is much larger than you think. ..

He is over here... with western laws... and he just couldn't help himself, and had to take her . off. All because she was leaving him..

If that doesn't sound like a bigoted, racist post I don't know what does.

Thank god for a quick blackout due to exponential loss of blood meaning you'd be out cold seconds after the artery is cut meaning a fairly painless death plus you can't still see, hear and "feel" like a quick be.ing (eg guillotine, axe, sword).

It's not that uncommon for a man to murder his wife.

I fail to see how be.ing someone is any worse than beating, shooting, poisoning or strangling them.

It's only because of cultural bias that we - in the West - may consider be.ing as a ''barbaric'' way to kill people.

Oh dear and the apologists rush in to defend a man who murdered his wife...

I can't actually believe I read the post from the person who said stuff about the main artery being severed so she'd be out cold.

Obviously I have total contempt for all murderers, whatever their reason for doing it, but the fact that there are people here defending the guy because they think others are being racist, is beyond belief, because lets face it, if it was random white guy, beats wife to a pulp and ends up killing her by whatever means, simply because she was leaving him, then everyone would be up in arms, no one would defend him!

I hope you're not including me as someone who was ''defending'' this man, as if you are, you couldn't be further from the truth.

The point is that someone killing their wife, husband, or partner, is probably the most common murderer/victim relationship of all. These cases are not that uncommon, and many of these murders will never even hit the national news.

The method of killing is irrelevant; it's taking another person's life away which is wrong.

The crime that this man has committed is equally as abhorrent as that of a man who ''beats his wife to a pulp''.

The fact that the method of murder was be.ing does not make this crime any worse than every other instance of someone murdering their partner.

They are all equally as bad.

Yes, I totally agree, all murders are abhorent. I was referring to the poster who accused someone, who was appalled at the manner of the women's death, as being a bigot and a racist, which is a common theme on any thread that mentions muslims, regardless of what the subject is! Then (same poster I think) the remark that be.ing is actually quite a quick and painless death...What is she supposed to be grateful?

Has pc really got to the level that you cannot condem a murderer for their crime, because they are muslim? And, that is not aimed at you at all, I'm just amazed at some of the opinions that have presented to me over the last week on this forum, that anyone who dares to say "there are some really questionable issues with the more radical approach to enforcing islamic law" and their immediate castigation and accusations from others of racism and bigotry.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Seeing as I didn't explicitly condemn this man's crime in my post, I thought that you may have been lumping me in as an ''apologist'' or someone who was ''defending'' him.

My apologies for misinterpreting your post.



I think that positive discrimination is just as ridiculous as negative discrimination; anybody defending somebody purely because they are a Muslim, are just as bad as those who criticise somebody for exactly this same reason.

The interpretations of this story cuts both ways, though, as if the story had just been: ''New York found guilty of murdering wife'', then it would hardly have been a topic for discussion.

The fact that the murderer is a Muslim, and that the victim dies from be.ing, opens up this story to be potentially exploited by some people who have an anti-Muslim slant.

As far as I can see, the crime is exactly the same as if a non-Muslim had brutally murdered his wife.
