TOPIC: Is honour killing justified??

Is honour killing justified?? 5 years, 8 months ago #229

hey all... honor killing is where a member of family or society is killed where a person is killed because they go against the rules or norms or values of the community and bring dishonor to them. but can it be called a justifiable act? and moreover it happens mostly with women?
kiling cant be justified but communities say that it is a way to purify their community..
comments welcome plz

killing in no way can be justified!
its shud be strictly punishable by law. things like 'honor killing' are just used in rural areas to play with the law.. but in way is it justified.

The Supreme Court has recently termed honor killing as a 'special case' and has said that courts should award death penalties to families who perform such a cruel inhuman act...
I think its a good move as hopefully a fear would prevent such cases in the future.

its a very welcome move but i am not sure how much it will deter people from committing this crime as most of the cases are not even reported as they are committed by their own family members...
