Britain’s Crimes Of Honour

Published on 24th February 2016 by

A BBC panorama feature which reveals there are thousands of crimes in the UK which go entirely unreported, they are committed by the muslim community and include beatings, imprisonment and even murder. They aren’t committed by violent strangers or abusive partners but by the victims own families, ‘honour killings’ which are carried out to protect the family name in their community.

The feature was made with access to police investigations which reveal a hidden world where muslim women are driven to suicide or are on the run from their own families who want to kill them. The killings usually relate to the simple fact that a muslim woman has fallen in love with a man and is caught kissing them, or has left the husband given to them via an arranged marriage.
