Interview with Deeyah Khan, Filmmaker, on honour killings

Director: Reza Moradi

Background: The UN conservatively estimates that 5,000 women and girls are killed each year by members of their own family, often fathers, brothers, uncles and cousins – and sometimes mothers and other female relatives. ‘Honour killings’ are usually premeditated and intended to restore a family’s ‘honour’ by ‘cleansing the shame’ which a woman or girl is said to have brought. Clearly, there is no honour in killing.

بر مبناي تخمين هاي محافظه كارانه سازمان ملل هر ساله ٥٠٠٠ زن و دختر توسط اعضاي خانواده خود كه اغلب پدر، برادر، عموها و گاها مادران انها هستند كشته ميشوند. قتل ناموسی معمولا با طرح و برنامه ریزی از پيش تعيين شده با هدف بازپس گيري ناموس یک خانواده اجرا ميشود. پاکسازی شرم که ظاهرا یک زن یا دختر براي خانواده به ارمغان آورده است، با از بين بردن وجود او بدست ميايد. واضح است که هیچ افتخاري در قتل وجود دارد .

There’s no honour in ‘honour killings’

It’s been reported that honour-related crimes are ‘rapidly rising’ in the UK.

Clearly, there will be a rise of violence against women with the rise of political religion and Sharia law. When Islamic law itself deems that women and girls are the source of chaos and fitna and calls for the punishment of those who ‘dishonour’ or commit ‘crimes against chastity’, a corresponding rise in ‘honour’ killings shouldn’t be surprising. The rapid raise also has to do with the good work of women’s rights groups like IKRWO, which have exposed the matter. The higher numbers are also because crimes are now being recorded as ‘honour-related crimes’ when they weren’t before.

Moreoever, Banaz Mahmoud’s case was instrumental in bringing things to a head here in Britain at least. [Read more…]
