    Outrage in India over latest 'honour killing' as father beheads daughter after finding her with man

    Outrage in India over latest 'honour killing' as father beheads daughter after finding her with man

    Outrage over so-called honour killings in India has been reignited after a father who found his daughter in a "compromising position" with a man severed her head with an axe - and then took it to his local police station.

    The man walked through the streets of Hardoi district in northern Uttar Pradesh state carrying his daughter's head, confessed to what he had done upon his arrival at the station, and was arrested, police said.

    Superintendent Anurag Vats told the Thomson Reuters Foundation: "The man said he saw his daughter in a compromising position with a man and he beheaded her in a fit of rage."

    Shocking images of him carrying the 17-year-old girl's head through the streets of Uttar Pradesh were shared online, reigniting urgent calls for the introduction of laws specifically dealing with so-called honour killings.

    Madhu Garg, vice president of the All India Democratic Women Association's Uttar Pradesh branch, said: "The issue of the right to choice needs immediate attention and a separate law should be made for dealing with honour killing."

    Human rights groups say thousands of women and girls are killed across South Asia and the Middle East each year by family members angered at perceived damage to their "honour".

    Perceived offences can include eloping, fraternising with men, or any transgression of staunchly conservative values regarding women.

    Last month, a woman was burnt alive by her family members over an inter-faith relationship in Uttar Pradesh, local media reported, quoting police officials.

    India officially recorded 24 honour killings in 2019, but campaigners say government statistics on honour killing mask
    the true scale of the crime, with women at greater risk than men.

    Almost 70% of honour killings in India are women, according to Arockiya Samy Kathir, the founder of non-profit campaigning group Evidence, which has for years worked on honour killings in south India.

    In 2018, the Indian government asked all states to set up special cells comprising of police and welfare officers, as well as a 24-hour helpline, to help couples facing harassment or those seeking protection.

    But campaigners say compliance has been poor.

    High-profile cases of violence against women in India have sparked mass protests in recent years, although many of them are not related to honour killings.

    Horrific crime.

    More like a crime of anger than anything else.

    An honour killing would imply a calculated punishment for a matter of honour?

    You can only wonder at the mindset which is prevalent in these societies where a man has no problem taking an axe to his own daughter and then carrying the head to a police station. This idea that somehow honour is being valued by this sort of rage needs to be well and truly debunked.

    Disgusting. Crazy to think honour culture is still such a thing, and even proliferates amongst British Indian (and other South Asian) communities.

    This is what happens when the degeneracy promoted by bollywood clashes with age old conservative living of the villages.

    Some notable absent PP stalwarts from this thread, I would suggest that for those actively avoiding, please consider that cruelty is not limited to the Pakistani minorities of your particular choice. This girl could have been a christian or a hindu or an ahmadi in another time or place. Or even hong kong based or Peshawar for that matter.
