UK: Islamic Honor Killings Rise to Alarming Levels –Nearly 3,000 Honor Related Attacks In 2010

Cause: The continuing rise of Muslim demographics.

Effect: The atrocious Islamic baggage that they carry with them, and the perpetration thereof, is certain to rise as well.

Statistics do not lie. And in this particular case, the numbers are chilling.


Islamic Honor Killing criteria: The dishonorable acts of; “having a boyfriend, being a victim of rape, refusing an arranged marriage, being gay or lesbian and in some cases wearing make-up or inappropriate dress.”

(Mail Online) –Nearly 3,000 so-called honour attacks were recorded by police in Britain last year, new research has revealed.

According to figures obtained by the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (Ikwro), at least 2,823 incidents of ‘honour-based’ violence took place, with the highest number recorded in London.

The charity said the statistics fail to provide the full picture of the levels of ‘honour’ violence in the UK , but are the best national estimate so far.

The data, taken from from 39 out of 52 UK forces, was released following a freedom of information request by Ikwro.

In total, eight police forces recorded more than 100 so called honour-related attacks in 2010.

The Metropolitan Police saw 495 incidents, with 378 reported in the West Midlands, 350 in West Yorkshire, 227 in Lancashire and 189 in Greater Manchester.

Cleveland recorded 153, while Suffolk and Bedfordshire saw 118 and 117 respectively, according to the figures.

Between the 12 forces able to provide figures from 2009, there was an overall 47 per cent rise in honour attack incidents.

Police in Northumbria saw a 305 per cent increase from 17 incidents in 2009 to 69 in 2010, while Cambridgeshire saw a 154 per cent jump from 11 to 28.

A quarter of police forces in the UK were unable or unwilling to provide data, Ikwro said.

The report stated: ‘This is the first time that a national estimate has been provided in relation to reporting of honour-based violence.

‘The number of incidents is significant, particularly when we consider the high levels of abuse that victims suffer before they seek help.’

‘Honour’ attacks are punishments usually carried out against Muslim women who have been accused of bringing shame on their family and in the past have included abductions, mutilations, beatings and murder.

Ikwro director Diana Nammi told the BBC that families often deny the existence of the attacks.

She said: ‘The perpetrators will be even considered as a hero within the community because he is the one defending the family and community’s honour and reputation.’
Ms Nammi added that ‘lots of things’ are considered to be dishonourable including; having a boyfriend, being a victim of rape, refusing an arranged marriage, being gay or lesbian and in some cases wearing make-up or inappropriate dress.

Of course, we must also consider the cases that go unreported…

I am ashamed to admit that I do not address this topic as often as I should. But thankfully Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs has been vigilantly reporting on Honor Killings, both here at home and abroad for some time. Her’s is the leading voice speaking out against the horror.
