    The gruesome story below is more than just a brutal homicide. The Muslim leader who turned himself in and has been charged with murder beheaded his wife.

    It will be interesting to see how much attention the news media pays to this story. It will be even more revealing to see if anyone in the media investigates why this Muslim leader chose beheading as a means to murder his wife.

    Will the media look into what the Qur’an and Hadith say about beheading enemies? Will the media look into the relationship between honor killings, beheadings, and shariah law? Will the media investigate this man’s background, and how he worked to raise money in Saudi Arabia for his television station?

    Or will political correctness trump investigative journalism?

    Prominent Orchard Park man charged with beheading his wife

    By Gene Warner

    Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community — reported her death to police Thursday.

    Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

    "He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead," Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said late this morning.

    Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.

    Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.

    The killing apparently occurred some time late Thursday afternoon. Detectives still are looking for the murder weapon.

    "Obviously, this is the worst form of domestic violence possible," Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said today.

    Authorities say Aasiya Hassan recently had filed for divorce from her husband.

    "She had an order of protection that had him out of the home as of Friday the 6th [of February]," Benz said.

    Muzzammil Hassan was arraigned before Village Justice Deborah Chimes and sent to the Erie County Holding Center.
