March 15, 2009: New York, USA. Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan today was ordered to remain jailed without bail after pleading not guilty to second-degree murder charges in the slaying and beheading of his wife in February in Orchard Park.

“Muzzammil Hassan (THE FAT ONE) receives award from CAIR-PA Chairman Iftekhar Hussain and CAIR National Chairman Parvez Ahmed,” from CAIR-PA

Homicide Prosecutor Colleen Curtin Gable told Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk there is a “strong” case against Hassan, 44, for the Feb. 12 killing of his wife, Aasiya Zubair Hassan, 37, based on alleged “admissions” Hassan has made and forensic evidence linking him to the crime. The woman’s decapitated body was found in the offices of Bridges TV, a locally based Muslim cable television station in Orchard Park that the couple founded several years ago.

March 15, 2009: Dhaka, Bangladesh A man was killed and 18 other people were injured in western Bangladesh on Friday when a pro-Islamic student group staged a violent demonstration in an attempt to take control of a university campus, police said. Local police inspector Elahi Bakth said the group held a rally Wednesday at the main campus of Rajshahi University, 190 kilometers west of the capital, Dhaka. The rally degenerated into fighting between the Islamic student group Chhatra Shibir and the student group associated with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s ruling Awami League party, he said. “The fighting broke out on Wednesday, but on Friday there was a fierce gun battle and one man, in his mid-20s, who was a member of Chhatra Shibir, was killed,” he said. “Eighteen others are injured and some are in a serious condition.” He said that police had closed the campus Friday afternoon and that 40 people had been arrested. Student clashes between rival groups are common in Bangladesh. Chhatra Shibir is the student wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami, the country’s largest Islamic party.

Students at an Islamic madrassa burn thousands of DVDs, videos and music CDs in Islamabad, Pakistan. The event, reminiscent of the early days of the Taliban in Afghanistan, took place within two kilometers of the Pakistani presidential palace, as well as the heavily-fortified U.S. embassy. Clerics at the mosque, known as the most radical in Islamabad, want Pakistan to adopt a Taliban-style government.

They maintain that movies and music are un-Islamic.

March 15, 2009: Peshawar, Pakistan Muslim religious extremists have long sought to ban secular music — and in some parts of the country, militants are enforcing their views with violence.
In areas controlled by the Taliban, CD stores have been destroyed or forced to shut down. Musicians have fled or been silenced, and fear is spreading even in areas where the Taliban is not in full control. One popular singer from the city of Peshawar no longer dares perform.
For Pashtuns, the dominant ethnic group in Pakistan’s rugged northwest, the voice of Gulzar Alam could bring tears. Drawing on their favorite poets, he sang of love, pride and nationalist aspirations. He packed local halls and was the musician of choice for weddings. He was handsome, well dressed, with a bit of the matinee idol about him.
Now, he sits on the floor of a slum, wrapped in a traditional shawl. His shaggy hair and scraggly beard are shot with gray.He laughs ruefully at what he has become: an old man before his time who cannot afford to shave.

Alam’s problems started seven years ago when a coalition of religious parties won elections in Pakistan’s northwest. The authorities harassed him, and a crowd attacked his house with rocks. He and his family fled south to Baluchistan.
Last year, after the religious coalition in the northwest was defeated, the new secular Pashtun government urged him to return — promising he would now be safe. It was a promise the government could not fulfill.
“Four months ago, performers were attacked as they returned from a function. Four musicians were injured, one was killed. No one is safe from the Taliban here. People have retreated into self-imposed censorship,” Alam says.
Once again, Alam began receiving threatening phone calls. He was shot at on the street.
He returned to Baluchistan, but found that the Taliban is now threatening musicians there, too. He tried to find gigs in the port city of Karachi, but there, he faced a different problem: ethnic violence against Pashtuns.
Back in Peshawar, he is afraid to perform. He has no source of income. After his elder brother turned him away, fearing the singer would put him in danger, Alam, his wife and five children sought refuge with other relatives. Now, three large families are crammed into three dank, dark rooms with no running water.
“It’s like falling from the sky to earth,” says Rukhsana Muqaddas, Alam’s wife. “Before this we had a very modern, wonderful life. We used to send our kids to good schools. Now, we can’t afford to educate them at all.”
Alam’s favorite song, a Pashtun ballad about loss of identity, has taken on a new meaning. Once the voice of the Pashtun downtrodden, Alam is now a member, his dreams of a peaceful Pashtun renaissance hijacked by the Taliban.
In downtown Peshawar, some music stores are still open. Arshat Khan has come from an outlying area, where all of the stores have been closed, to buy CDs of his favorite singers; Alam is among them. Although his old recordings are still on sale, there is no system of royalties. So while it may warm Alam’s heart to know he is loved, this doesn’t fill his children’s stomachs.
Khan says cultural life has come to a standstill.

“Life is colorless. … It’s like living in a world that is black and white. You have just to eat and excrete and live under perpetual fear,”
March 15, 2009: Kosovo, Serbia. Florim Ejupi has been found not guilty of bombing a bus in Kosovo by a panel of international judges. A panel of international judges ordered the release of an ethnic Albanian convicted of a 2001 bus bombing that killed 11 Serbs in Kosovo, a spokeswoman said on Friday. Florim Ejupi received a 40-year sentence last year after he was found guilty of planting and detonating a bomb that killed 11 people and injured 22 on a bus carrying Serbian pilgrims to the monastery town of Gracanica.

He appealed against the verdict. “He is released,” Karin Limdal, spokeswoman for the European Union police and justice mission (EULEX). She did not give a reason for the decision. The EULEX mission, composed of international police officers, customs agents, judges and prosecutors, was deployed in Kosovo in December to help the Balkan country build up its institutions. The mission helps to settle unresolved cases, including more than 1,200 war crimes cases and others related to organised crime. Kosovo Serbs oppose the deployment of the mission because of its close cooperation with Pristina institutions

March 15, 2009: Khartoum, Sudan Officials from the joint U.N.-African Union peackeeping force in Darfur say the kidnapped foreign aid workers have been released. Kemal Saiki, communication director for the force, says the men arrived Saturday at El Fasher airport in North Darfur.Josephine Guerraro, the force’s spokeswoman confirmed their release via text message, describing them as “in good health.” She said released included the three foreigners and one Sudanese.The aid workers from the Belgian branch of Doctors Without Borders were snatched from their compound in northern Darfur late on Wednesday night.
Earlier story is below.
The kidnappers of three workers from the international aid group Doctors without Borders (MSF) abducted in Sudan’s Darfur region have demanded the international arrest warrant for Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir be withdrawn in exchange for the hostages’ release, pan-Arab daily al-Hayat’ reports, citing unnamed local sources.
The MSF workers’ kidnappers have also asked for a ransom and belong to an armed Arab tribe, according to al-Hayat.
The kidnappers made their their demands by phone via Sudanese mediators who are negotiating for the hostages’ release. The mediators include tribal leaders in Darfur, according to al-Hayat.
An Italian doctor, a Canadian nurse and a French co-ordinator with MSF were kidnapped in the area of Serif Umra, located in North Darfur late Wednesday.
“As a result of the abductions, all sections of MSF are withdrawing almost all international staff from projects in Darfur. Only an essential skeleton team will remain to follow the case of the abducted MSF colleagues. A number of Sudanese staff will also be relocated for now,” the aid group said in a statement on Thursday.
The Hague-based International Criminal Court last week issued an arrest warrant for al-Bashir for alleged war crimes in Darfur (photo), sparking outrage in Sudan and the Arab world.
Al-Bashir, the first sitting head of state to be indicted by the court, faces five counts of crimes against humanity, including responsibility for murder, rape and torture, and two counts of war crimes.
