No honour in killing, Bread and Roses TV with Maryam Namazie and Fariborz Pooya
8 September 2015

Interview with Deeyah Khan, Filmmaker, on honour killings

Also the drowning of Aylan, the migrant crisis, revenge rape in India, refugee welcome committees, and a fatwa against roller skating in Mecca.

Director: Reza Moradi

Translation: Mohammad B

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.
