There’s Some Really Sick People In This Town #5

Welcome to another instalment of this irregular series of posts about that other side of humanity.

Once upon a time…

There was a nice man who lived in America called Muzzammil Hassan.

(Yes, he is muslim but that’s not really relevant)

He was so nice that when his wife, Aasiya Hassan, asked for a divorce because of physical abuse he murdered her by beheading her.

(Yes, she was muslim as well but again not really relevant)

So, not a very nice man after all, right ?

Welllll, he used to be.

Back in 2004 he was part of the effort to launch “Bridges TV”, the 1st English spoken muslim TV channel for North America.

See ? That was quite nice.

Bridges TV came about because following the events of September 2001 there was an increasing focus on fanatical/stereotypical Islam in US media.

The idea was to counter this with a more accurate portrayal.

Here’s a quote by the CEO of the channel:

Bridges TV gives American muslims a voice & will depict them in everyday, real life situations.”

Makes one wonder why Muzzammil Hassan couldn’t have been more like that nice CEO ?

they’re one & the same 😯

(Now that part really IS relevant but unfortunately many won’t see it that way)

& just in case you think I made it all up, here’s the despicable link o’ truth.
