Epic Fail

Don’t get me wrong. This is not a post meant to disparage any religion, especially the Muslim religion. You know, the “religion of peace”.

Muzzammil Hassan was a cable TV producer, who set up his own cable studio to broadcast  shows that “promote[d] understanding of his Muslim culture”. He started the studio with his wife, Aasiya Hassan, the 37 year old mother of his two children. They wanted to counter the negative stereotypes of Muslims perceived by Americans since 9/11. On Feb 12, 2009, he stabbed her to death with two knives he had purchased about an hour earlier at Wal-Mart, six days after she had filed for divorce.

He also beheaded her, possibly while she was still conscious. The jury took only an hour to find him guilty.

Let’s just be glad he didn’t film it for an upcoming broadcast of “Islam: A Day in the Life of a Muslim Wife”.

  1. Nnnnooooooooooo…. I feel like I read this post in slow motion. It’s like watching an expensive vase wobble and shatter on the floor.

  2. I remember this case. It was pretty big news when it happened. How long will it be before he is sentenced?

    The jokes just write themselves, don’t they?

    @NFQ

    Yes. You could see it coming a mile away.

    Not sure. I think I saw somewhere that he could get 15 to life, but what he’ll actually get only Allah knows.

  4. Wow, it takes far too long to have a trial. I feel like this story is so old, and they only just convicted? Shit.

    Anyway, how nice that he got brand new knives for her! None of those old, used knives. Only the best for his… er, well you know.

    • Brand new knives… He didn’t want her to get tetanus while she was dying. Quite thoughtful of him really.
