Muslim TV Founder Muzzammil Hassan Beat Wife At Family Gathering. Asma Firfirey from Elsies River talks about how her brother-in-law abused her late sister.
Cape Town - An Elsies River woman is concerned about her sister's children, after her brother-in-law allegedly decapitated her sister in the US.
Asma Firfirey, 42, on Monday wanted to know how her brother-in-law could still be in charge of the children.
The brother-in-law was due to appear in a Buffalo court on Tuesday to argue for custody of their children.
Firfirey said she and her husband, Amier, 49, were talking to her sister, Aasiya, 37, on the telephone last Thursday, when they heard her tell her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, to calm down and that they could talk the following day about the divorce.
Then they heard sounds that sounded like her sister was struggling to breathe.
On Friday, they were informed by a family member that her sister had died.
"I can only imagine how scared and emotional she must have been before she died."
Hassan was last week arrested after allegedly decapitating his wife at his business, Bridges TV.
Police are still searching for the weapon, reported a local newspaper, Buffalo News.
'Fat man with evil eyes'
Fifirey believes Hassan, whom she calls "the fat man with the evil eyes" will be more dangerous when he is released on bail.
The children, Rania, 4, and Danyal, 6, are currently being cared for by a colleague of Hassan's.
Fifirey said the last time her sister had been in South Africa was in May last year, and that on her arrival, she had been assaulted so badly that they had to pay R30 000 in medical fees.
Firfirey said her sister returned to America as she "didn't want to leave her children with that monster". She also wanted to complete her MBA.
Hassan would have graduated on March 6.
