"The founder of the first US cable television network aimed at Muslim families has been arrested and charged with beheading his wife, police said Tuesday.
Muzzammil Hassan was charged with second-degree murder of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, whose decapitated body was found Thursday by police at the Bridges TV station in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park in western New York state, police said.
"When we did our market research, what people told us was that there are foreign-language channels available in the US, but they cater to their foreign-born parents and not their American children," Hassan told AFP in 2004. "Bridges TV is trying to fill that gap," he said.
Its programming ranges from Koranic and Islamic religious content to news, documentaries, soap operas and shows geared toward women and children, in a bid to reflect many facets of life. "
Ain't that ironic?
