Honour Killing in India is a glaring concern in today’s era. As killing a member of the family to preserve the “Honour”- are these killings actually ‘Honourable”? There is a pertinent question attached to honour killings that are- Firstly, who is supposed to decide that a particular situation has brought dishonor to the family? Secondly, how does a person end the life of another person to protect the ‘honour’ of the family? 

The high number of honour killings in India are not only a replication of the prevailing stark religious and caste-based divisions in Indian society but also an indicator of deep-rooted patriarchal structures which continue to control a person’s autonomy and decision-making. Ultimately, all honour killings enforce a hierarchy of status and are often used to signal caste supremacy to other communities. 

This Book is going to benefit all students/Scholars/Academicians to gain a vast knowledge in detail about Honour Killings in India. This Book can be used both as Text and Reference form and will develop a rational mindset amongst all – that there is no “honour” in taking a person’s life.
