Murder is murder

Reader comment on item: The Deceits of Bridges TV

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Feb 25, 2009 at 09:26

The murder of Aasiya Hassan seems to be both an honor killing and a crime of passion, but any way you look at it, it's murder. We cannot allow this murder to fade into insignificance, as the circumstances leading up to it point out that Muzzammil's honor was at stake and it seems that there was a history of domestic violence. The "Bridges TV" claim that "Muslims in America suffer from bias and are victimized" is so false----Muslims in this country fare much better than others, often living in the best neighbourhoods, enjoying high-salaried jobs. They definitely are not suffering! Let's hope this website and the media keep this story alive, so it doesn't fade into the vast universe of forgotten crimes.
