Orchard Park, New York is where Asshyia Z. Hassen, 37, had her head cut off by her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, Muslim leader.

This is “honor killing” American style, one more time.

“’He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead,’ Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said” per Gene Warner of The Buffalo News.

She had been at her husband’s Bridges TV office where the police discovered her decapitated body.

“Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.”

“. . .Muslims in a more positive light”?

Obviously, his recent act has sullied the Muslim image throughout America and every descent part of the world community.

The wife had recently filed for divorce from her husband. Obviously, the husband did not consider that honorable. Therefore, he took matters into his own hand to honor the divorce file—cutting her head off.

"’She had an order of protection that had him out of the home as of Friday the 6th [of February],’ authorities said.”

The Muslims spokesman for upright living now sits in the Erie County Holding Center, arraigned before Village Justice Deborah Chimes.

"In Dallas, an Egyptian man is wanted by police, accused of murdering his two daughters, reportedly, because they had non-Muslim boyfriends.

"In Scottsville, N.Y., a Turkish immigrant has been in and out of psychiatric care since he was charged three years ago with killing his wife and beating his daughters because of alleged sexual assault.

"In some honor killings overseas, family members have killed women who've been raped because they're considered to have brought shame on their families."
