Who was Aasiya Zubair?

Aasiya Zubair, also known as Aasiya Hassan was with her husband Muzzammil Hassan, the founder and owner of Bridges TV, the first American Muslim English-language television network. In February 2009, she was found dead, beheaded, at the Bridges TV station after her estranged husband turned himself in to a police station and was charged with 2nd degree murder.

Some observers regard the murder an honor killing. Marcia Pappas, New York State president of the National Organization for Women told The Buffalo News that "This was apparently a terroristic version of honor killing, a murder rooted in cultural notions about women’s subordination to men.”
