Exclusive: The Plight of Women under Islamism: Time for Muslims to Shed the Denial
M. Zuhdi Jasser


There is no more powerful retardant to change and reform among individuals and in a community than human denial.

According to Andrew Benz, Orchard Park Police Chief, on Thursday, February 12, 2009, Muzammil H. Hassan, the founder and CEO of Bridges TV, walked into the police station at 6:20 PM and told officers that his wife was lying dead at the Bridges TV offices. Later, Benz confirmed on WIVB Channel 4 that she was decapitated.

The Veneer of Bridges TV

Mr. Hassan immigrated to the United States from Pakistan in the 1980s. He received an MBA from the University of Rochester in New York and then worked at Procter & Gamble before becoming a banker. In a profile on Hassan and Bridges TV on December 24, 2004 on NPR’s All Things Considered, Jerome Vau

  • I think the article is exactly right.

    Muslims can deflect criticism and refuse to acknowledge the role of "political" Islam in atrocities and oppression but non-muslims, the world over, understand the problem is the beliefs and culture that go along with political Islam.

  • The message is clear Mr. Jester. And I don't need 1,500 words to say it:
    There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.

  • Let's not be racist in our rush to judge. First, we should consult the Koran to see if the lowly woman deserved it. Then we'll ask his imam what sould be done, if anything(besides helping him look for a new, younger, more compliant wife.)

    • after all it's only Muslim men that are always wanting newer, younger, more compliant wives

    • Indeed, most men want younger, more compliant wives. Yet not since the notorious days of King Henry VIII of England has it been legal in the West to behead one's wives that grossly displease you. The fundamentalist muslim culture of the Middle East, however has deemed that beheading (or simply killing in a less spectacular fashion) one's wife, or one's daughter is legally permissible---no, required---in matters involving "family honor". Perhaps rather than your voice, it would be more More..

  • Too bad it wasn't captured on video so we could hear if he chanted Allah Akbar. Crass?...yes, I know but it'd help. My bets are he did but that's mere speculation. It would just make better sense.

  • If Hassan is just a muslim man who comitted murder and it had nothing to do with his religious beliefs, why would he use a method like beheading which is linked, in most peoples minds, to Islamic punishments. If he had murdered her in another manner, shooting, stabbing, etc.,there probably would not be so much controversy.

  • Alot of islamic countries are ignorant, backwards, brutal, and medieval. To that i say, so what? They've been that way for centuries and along come some well meaning infidels (not me thats for sure) to try and civilize them. I say, to Hell with that. It's worse then useless. Don't try anymore! The answer is not to try to change them but to make ourselves energy independent and get the Hell out of these crazy countries.

  • If the surrounding and related Muslim communities are wise, they'll denounce this and distance themselves.

    • they don't have to denounce or distance themselves from anything if it isn't their community doing it

    • Dudddddeeee... I agree with you most of the time, but look at the method he used to kill her.

      BEHEADING!!!

      Seriously, you need to put EFFORT into beheading someone.

      If you have ever done jiu jitsu, you'd know it's relatively easy to choke someone out, and if you choked someone to death, it's not very messy, nor is it noisy, gross, or require much effort.

      I imagine beheading someone, and I think it would be a tough thing to do, also, it would be disgusting, messy, AND time consuming.

    • of course it's brutal to kill someone that way. it's brutal to kill someone at all -- i don't think there's any excuse for honor killings

      and i don't agree with your view about Islam or Muslims in general

    • Not really, Christians denounced the abortion clinic bombings done by fantatics. The problem is that the moderates and western muslims DON'T speak up against these things. There was no denouncement from the moderates over the call to kill the danish cartoonist or salmon rushdie over his book.

      Thats the difference, their fantatics have influence, ours are just funny.
