I think its horrible.  It's just another prime example of violence towards women.

No men get killed to defend family honor to my knowledge.


it is not just against women... in fact its is the bad term (honor killing) to be used
there is nothing called honor killing in Indian society but is new term created by the media

I am the person from the same land where these cases occurs.... these are the normal killings based on the property and family matter

how can you think a brother can kill his another brother or sister just for the sake of their honor... after all we are also humans

There is nothing honorable in honor killing or other atrocities and, in fact, it is nothing but barbaric and shameful murder,” India Supreme Court Justice Katju said. “Other atrocities in respect of personal lives of people committed by brutal, feudal-minded persons deserve harsh punishment.”

I'm not bashing india.  Criminal acts such as this are treated as criminal acts - that's a good thing.

How do you figure?  That statement you quoted was from the India Supreme Court Justice.
