So he and his wife started Bridges TV with the message of developing understanding between North America and the Middle East and South Asia? Hmm hacking your wives head off in the name of "honor killing" is sort of counterproductive to that aim.
Actually, hacking off his wife's head due to their beliefs explains their customs and culture to North America quite well. From the article:
Nadia Shahram, who teaches family law and Islam at the University at Buffalo Law School, explained honor killing as a practice still accepted among fanatical Muslim men who feel betrayed by their wives.
"If a woman breaks the law which the husband or father has placed for the wife or daughter, honor killing has been justified," said Shahram, who was a regular panelist on a law show produced by Bridges TV. "It happens all the time. It's been practiced in countries such as Pakistan and in India."
Nancy Sanders, the television station's news director for 2 1/2 years, remembers him asking her to move her feet during her job interview so he would not see her legs. She was wearing a skirt and stockings.
He also would not let women enter his office unless his wife was there, and he blocked the station from airing a story about the first Muslim woman to win the title of Miss England in 2005, Sanders said.
Seems he held to many of their practices and beliefs and now more people are aware of those practices and beliefs. Crazy for us here in the States and I'm sure he'll be locked up for the rest of his life (or executed), but not crazy in other parts of the world.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
