UK: ‘Honour killings’ are a growing problem, say campaigners – 2000 incidents of “honour” violence in 2014

Campaigners say the number of crimes in the name of so-called ”honour” – abductions, imprisonments and murders – is growing in the UK.

More than 11,000 were recorded by police forces between 2010 and 2014, according to figures obtained by the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation.

  • Western feminists cannot make value judgements on other cultures’ practices.

    They are more concerned with the “right” to self-identify their own sexual identity.

    And then demand proper medical (21st century witch doctoring) “gender reassignment surgery”.

    Sorry but the actual problem which continues to grow is the importation of Muslims. End that and honour killings and many other costly problems cease to exist.

    These women? The flower of Islam?
    Yeah, I USED to feel sorry for these “victims”, but I also realize that they Re my oppressors baby factories too.
    Stop admitting Muslum immigrants and start demanding the cultural assimilation of the ones still here that we can’t get rid of.

      Yep. I don’t care what muslims do to each other in Pakistan. Why would I care that they do the same things here, as long as it doesn’t involve me?

    Look closely at the photo….

    Both Sahar and Geeti had the same birth date of ’22 – 10- 91′?

    NO, they certainly did not.

    Sahar was 17 and Geeti was 13 when they were murdered in 2009.

    Burying Geeti under a gravestone with an incorrect birth date was the final insult to her and her sisters.
