Honor Killing


*A honor killing means to be killed by a family member or any other close male, due to the belief of the perpetrators that the victim has brought dishonor on the family or community.

*The reason to being dishonored is one of the following behaviors, or the suspicion of such behaviors: dressing in a manner unacceptable to the family or community, wanting to terminate or prevent an arranged marriage or desiring to marry by own choice, especially if to a member of a social group deemed inappropriate, engaging in heterosexual acts outside marriage and engaging in homosexual acts.

*Over 5,000 deaths happened a year, 1,000 deaths occurred in India and Pakistan, 12 honor killings.

*The outcome of honor killing would have been the causes of death within a year and the lives that were taking by brothers, uncles, and fathers

*Things we can do to result this problem from happening is to give consequences to the people engaging in the honor killings.
