Reader comment on item: Bridges TV, a Wife's Beheading, and Honor Murder
in response to reader comment: domestic violence,with or without religion

Submitted by ravin black (United States), Feb 17, 2009 at 00:55

considering that mrs. hassan had just filed for divorce, the problems had come to a head. mr. hassan would look foolish in front of the rest of the investors if his wife who it is said wanted to start this tv station took over control of it

it appears mrs. hassan became too americanized and a need to show muslim women and american women where their place is in their world became very important. i don't believe this mr. hassan did this on his own...he had to have had help. this may have even been ordered by someone for mrs. hassan had stepped way out of the bounds.

yes, domestic violence is still violence...men that are not muslims do it for the same reasons. it is just religion gives a good cover to kill someone. whether or not mr. hassan confesses to a honor killing...the question is do the muslims that control this ugly affair feel that american law is persecuting mr. hassan by not allowing him to practice his faith. should some people in america have a different court room than others? should there be an islamic court for those in islam? what if one party wants out of islam then what court do they use?

unfortunately, that argument is the same as to whether a person who is not a citizen should receive the same rights as an american citizen. when one opens up that door to a different court system then islamic courts are sure to seek their authority!!!
