Improving the image…

Good morning, Netizens…

In this photo made available by Bridges TV of Orchard Park, NY near Buffalo, Muzzammil (Mo) Hassan, and his wife Aasiya Hassan of Orchard Park, pose in an undated photo. Police say Hassan beheaded his wife, an architect, after she filed for divorce. Mo Hassan, CEO of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, NY, launched the network in 2004, to improve the image of Muslims in the media following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

In certain areas of Pakistan and India Muslim males are lawfully entitled perform what is termed an honor killing, although some American sources are referring to the beheading as a case of domestic violence that got out of control.

What is honor killing? According to several sources, honor killing is acceptable behavior for Muslim men anytime their wives/daughters violate laws which the men have set for them.

According to the mission statement of Bridges TV, “Bridges TV aims to foster a greater understanding among many cultures and diverse populations”, and continues to state they “seek to be a unifying force that can help people understand our diverse world through education and entertainment.”

I think I understand it now. A woman can be beheaded by fanatical Muslim men who feel betrayed by their spouses. All the sophistication in the world cannot undo the problem ones male image would suffer if convicted of such a crime in the US. In short, in acceptable Muslim society, women have no rights, even to life itself. Or perhaps I missed something here.
