‘Honour’ attack numbers revealed by UK police forces
“A freedom of information request by the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (Ikwro) revealed that nearly 500 of these were in London.
Among the 12 forces also able to provide figures from 2009, there was an overall 47% rise in such incidents.
Honour attacks are punishments on people, usually women, for acts deemed to have brought shame on their family.
Such attacks can include acid attacks, abduction, mutilations, beatings and in some cases, murder.
Ikwro said its research, carried out between July and November, is the best national estimate so far of the extent of honour violence in Britain, although the charity says the figures do not give the full picture.”
(NOTE: I hesitated to put this under “Islam”, but, then again, if someone is perverting Islam like this, then other Muslims should know about it.)
