NY Man Accused Of Beheading Wife: Jailers Beat Me

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The founder of a Muslim-oriented television station says he doesn’t feel safe in jail as he awaits trial on charges he beheaded his wife.

Muzzammil Hassan appeared Wednesday at a pretrial conference in Erie County Court in Buffalo, where he told the judge he’s been beaten by sheriff’s deputies at the county jail.

Hassan’s lawyer asked the judge to order jail videotapes preserved. The judge didn’t immediately rule.

Undersheriff Mark Wipperman later called Hassan’s allegations “preposterous” and Hassan himself “a troublesome and problematic inmate.”

Aasiya Hassan was killed in 2009 inside the TV station she and her husband established to promote cultural understanding. She had recently filed for divorce.

Hassan’s murder trial is scheduled to start January 10.

    what ever cult, and all religions are a cult this guy belonged to is besides the fact. hes a nut bag who beheaded his wife…how come u people dont start screaming about all the crazy christians comitting crime? how about the catholics who molest kids…i got an even better religion, get off you american ENEMY of the day, and view people as people, some are fawked in the head, some join cults..but thier insane actions are not represetation of thier color, race or religion. if you classify all into one, you make yourself look like an undereducated, inbred redneck- and THAT is how most of the western world VIEWS YOU because of the ignorant hte speach so often spewed out of the mouths of americans!

    Amara, with all due respect there can be no rattional arguement in support of the increasingly disgraceful behaviour of Muslims living in the West, They/you are unwilling to integrate into our culture and only wish to spread your own so-called religion,ways and norms into the West (beheading,and mass suicide- just to name two). To state that there is Islaimaphobia iin the West is nonesnese. You have created the situation yourselves. To avoid all the problems, why not return to your own Islamic countries., where this brave man would be honoured for beheading his lolvely wife.

    WHY DID YOU INFIDEL DOGS IMPRISON THIS POOR MAN?
    HE IS ONLY TEACHING HIS PROPERTY A LESSON IN RESPECT.
    ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE!
    STOP PERSECUTING US MUSLIMS!
    WE WILL _KILL_ YOU SATANIC DOGS!
    ALLAH IS MERCIFUL!

    If Barack beheaded Michele this would be a total non-issue

  5. Amara says:

    Leave religion out of this issue.It has nothing to do with it.There is no quotations or Surat in the Holy Quran that says that you should kill somebody or behead somebody.Stop this islamophobia in America.People are killed everyday in every major cities and towns in The U.S.These crimes are not perpetrated by muslims.Why only one crime committed by a muslim,if it’s committed by him,becomes a religious issue.Stop this nonsense.

    john , dave , sam and chiao , please check your grammar skills before leaving comments , if all four of you were born in the united states and went through the school systems here, then you should be embarrassed. all of you have basic grammar mistakes , and that is what’s really ignorant here and just plain silly, thank you … now, i was born in serbia (christian orthodox) and was taught early on to not trust the muslims..why? because the muslim ottoman empire slaughtered our people for 500 years and tried to turn us to a muslim country by force , and my people and our religion only survived because we fought for our freedom for all those years , so this guy beheading his wife is pretty much not a surprise

    1. TT says:

      Duke check your grammar. Its worse then all of them combined. This is not an english writing course so who cares?

  7. Dave says:

    When will we finally come to the point when we will classify Islam as a rogue religion? This kind of behavior is STANDARD and LEGAL in most Moslem countries. It is prevalent, though illegal, in France among the Moroccan and Algerian population..Wake up, guys!

  8. chiao says:

    The Problem being…he’s not a Muslim, but probably an Islam. Although the line could be thin for us outsiders, but there’re still many differences when it comes to real lives and real people, well, in case he wonders, he’d better hang out with the great Malcolm X as his soul keeper now, or perhaps he’d prefer to be wrapped up in blankets and drop off the roof as a more suited ethnic treatment. LOL.

  9. John says:

    What does him being Muslim have to do with anything? You would’ve got the same crime from a white person, Hispanic, African American, it doesn’t matter, even a well known community figure this could’ve been. Stop taking these ridiculous shot at a religion, it’s not someone’s religion responsible, it’s the person themselves. You make yourself look ignorant and stupid when you make such statements, that’s whats wrong with this country right now, quick to criticize what you don’t understand.

    1. ericm says:

      John…it is you that looks ignorant here. The Muslim religion promotes mistreatment of women, and allows men who have a propensity towards viloence to act out their sick inclinations. Not all Muslims are wife killers – but an awful lot of wife killers are Muslim. So yes, we should temper our remarks – but let’s not ignore reality.

  10. sam smith says:

    Once more a Muslim who has committed an atrocity bleats about his own treatment when captured, despite being offered a fair trial. When will the West learn not to tolerate these people, who despise and loath ourselves and our values?
