Honor Killing-A shocking crime that still happens in modern India.Really shocked to read a news yesterday about the honor killing of a girl by nearly a dozen members of her family. Which world are we still living in? The members involved also include the girl's mother. That is something which can shake anyone's conscience. In this age when we talk of equality for the girl child, hearing great success stories of girls, girls taking active participation in every walks of life, hearing something like this makes us numb. Are we really developing as a nation or still juggling with the horrors of unholy crimes. Honor killing is a crime. Every girl has the right to choose a partner of her choice once she is matured. I guess its high time the parents realize this and do away with the age old customs and beliefs of caste, creed etc when deciding for a groom for the girl. Honor killing does not kill the person, it kills humanity. No religion teaches honor killing. Its high time the government takes severe action and punishes the culprits to set a precedent that nobody else can even think of committing such a heinous crime. We do not want to hang our heads in shame in modern India hearing such inhumane crime.
