Now, in a grotesque mirror image of how Islamic supremacists always disclaim and displace responsibility for their own misdeeds onto others, including their victims, he is claiming his wife abused him. "The other woman in Mo Hassan's life," by Sandra Tan for the Buffalo News, January 16 (thanks to Mark):
Muzzammil Hassan had another woman in his life, and he wanted his wife to know.
Whether the relationship was intimate is unknown, but he went out of his way to humiliate his wife with the possibility, Aasiya Zubair Hassan's sister said. For months, he forced his wife to listen in on his friendly and flirtatious phone banter with the woman, said Asma Firfirey, Aasiya's sister.
Two days before her death, Aasiya, 37, finally e-mailed that other woman -- an investor in the Bridges TV network the couple founded -- telling her how she suffered while the two of them shared "fun and laughter" at her expense.
That e-mail, which The Buffalo News read, included some snippets of her husband's cruel and demeaning writings to her, along with a picture of her beaten face and destroyed belongings. She ended her note by referring to her recent divorce filing.
Firfirey rebuked her sister for sending the e-mail, saying it only would put her in greater danger. "I said, 'You must go and hide somewhere because something is going to happen you,'" Firfirey said. [...]
Nearly two years have passed since Feb. 12, 2009, when Muzzammil Hassan, known as "Mo," walked into Orchard Park Police Headquarters, told a lieutenant he had killed his wife and handed over the keys to the Bridges cable studio, where her stabbed and decapitated body was found.
Since then, the case has received national attention and attracted talk of an "honor killing."
Hassan, 46, has maintained that he -- not his wife -- had been the victim of years of psychological torture and physical abuse.
Now, a jury finally will determine whether Hassan, a once-respected cable executive, is a victim or a villain....
He wasn't just a cable executive. He was the founder of Bridges TV, a station designed to present a positive image of Muslims in the U.S. He beheaded Aasiya in the studio.
