Head of the Family: Islamic Radio Station Founder Claims Wife Dominated Him Before He Beheaded Her

Muzzammil Hassan, the founder of an Islam-oriented television station, has fired his attorney and hired a new attorney who promised a “revolutionary defense” for the beheading of Hassan’s late wife. It appears to be a type of spousal abuse syndrome claim.

Hassan’s new lawyer claims that Aasiya Hassan, 37, was the dominant spouse and that she had hounded him psychologically for years — leading to his act of self-help in cutting off her head in the offices of Bridges TV.

This clearly did not sit well with District Attorney Frank Sedita who responded repeatedly with the same observation: “He chopped her head off. He chopped her head off. That’s all I have to say about Mr. Hassan’s apparent defense that he was a battered spouse.” That is likely a fairly good idea what the entirety of Sedita’s opening and closing arguments are likely to be at trial.

Hassan may want to reconsider the defense. Otherwise they may be telling a new joke at the Orchard Park, N.Y. courthouse: What goes “ha ha thump?” A juror laughing his head off.

  1. While I don’t think Divorce is a good solution in all situations, it is ALWAYS a better solution than “cut her head off.”

  2. You have to be kidding me. Any chance he at one time worked in the OLC with any of the other striking defendants?

  3. This reminds me of the brutal murder of Elena Steinberg by her husband, Steve, here in Scotsdale, AZ in the early 80’s. The guy got OFF on a similar defense of his wife being a nagging bitch coupled with his claim of stabbing her 26 times while SLEEPWALKING. It was truly a travesty of justice.
