Honor killings and honor violence are escalating here and abroad. The problem is that we can’t talk about the problem. Anyone who dares to do so is immediately vilified as a racist-islamofauxbic-antimuslim-bigot.

And if you can, please contribute to Geller Report. YOU make the work possible.
According to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, “In the name of preserving family ‘honor,’ women and girls are shot, stoned, burned, buried alive, strangled, smothered and knifed to death with horrifying regularity.” Between 5,000 and 20,000 so-called honor killings are committed each year, based on long-held beliefs that any female who commits — or is suspected of committing — an “immoral” act should be killed to “restore honor” to her family.
But of course that number is far higher.
Because so many honor killings are never reported — and because international organizations are discouraged from keeping statistics on such politically sensitive practices — no one knows how many honor killings occur each year.
Meanwhile, human rights organizations are busy worrying about “Islamophobia.”

Nazima used to have frequent quarrels with her family over her love affair with Deepak.
“Bibi Jaan and Mysore Jaan were opposed to the relationship of their daughter with Deepak who belongs to another community,” the police said.
Bibi informed her relatives and friends in the morning about her daughter’s death and told them that Nazima died due to severe stomach pain.
Noticing this, Nazima’s boyfriend Deepak got suspicious and informed the police about the whole incident….
