Not the best PR move in the world

Has anyone ever heard of Bridges TV? It is an American TV channel that was set up by a Muslim man and wife to tackle negative perceptions of Islam in the media. There may even be a UK version of the channel on Sky it seems.

Anyway, the founder and Chief Executive Muzzammil Hassan has found himself in a bit of hot water. Having set up the channel to show the positive side of Islam and tackle those negative perceptions, he has been just been charged the second degree murder of his wife who was rather unfortunately beheaded. Apparently she had just filed for divorce.

Clearly trying to get ahead of the curve.

Yes, they just can't help themselves.

Ahmed, so called lord by Labour, used as one excuse for Wilders being refused entry, as he is currently under charge of a criminal offence. Ummm, in this country, unlike almost all muslim countries, he is innocent until proven and convicted, as ahmed conveniently ignored, and also, isn't ahmed under threat of conviction and jail for killing someone?

They always conveniently ignore all aspects of their religion which gives even the whiff of a negative perception; honour killing, sharia, women fourth class etc. etc. etc.

"Unfortunately" beheaded?

You mean it might have been an accident?

Slipped whilst shaving?

Filleting a kipper and it started fighting back?

Practising for a chiropractic exam, applied too much pressure and - splat, her head came away in her hands?

And that's negative why?

Unfortunately Mr Hassan may end up getting a good seeing to in the shower block, but on the bright side he won't have to pay the bitch any alimony.
