In India alone honour killings are an everyday fare with communities like the Khap legitimizing it! Men and women who have fallen in love with people outside their community or religion are faced with the very real threat of death sometimes at the hands of their own family members. The idea that a family's honour lies in the hands of a woman means that any so called dishonour means she should be killed for bringing shame on the family.
