Honour killing Vs Lecherous killing

Posted on: May 5, 2010



Media always become happy when there is a story of “honour killing”; which means a child is killed by a parent to safeguard the honour of the family. Nirupama Pathak’s murder by her own mother is the latest of its kind. But it is extremely dubious here to see why ‘caste’ is brought into the picture. Post mortem report clearly states that she was 10 to 12 weeks pregnant. I’m not trying to justify this double murder here but pointing to the deliberate attempt to propagate some hidden agenda. Even in the western world pregnancy outside wedlock is not considered a social “good” though it is not condemned as in societies which uphold rather high level of moral values. An average Indian family cares a lot about morality, so we have all reasons to suspect ‘pregnancy’ rather ‘caste’ as the motive of this murder.

Haryana had a similar incident where a 17 year old boy killed his 20 year old friend, for loving his sister. The report said it was for loving an upper-caste girl which didn’t get this much media hype though, for the obvious reason that the victim was of male gender and there is no ministry or commission for them to take up the matter and give the hype!

This is indeed one horrid aspect of our so called civilized society but another trend that we forget to see or not getting enough media attention is ‘lecherous killing’. Here parents get killed by children.

19 year old Sonam from Rohtak (Haryana) together with her partner had reportedly slaughtered her entire family of seven members including father, mother and brother because they opposed her love.

26 year old Sakshi Kapoor a Delhi resident, stabbed her mother Kiran Kapoor, 55, with kitchen knife and beer bottles when caught red handed with her lover in compromising situation.

Those age old cultural heritage and so called moral values are long gone. India has changed, Indians have changed, values have changed, attitude, approach, goals and missions have changed but those who play the CASTE CARD has yet to change!

“An average Indian family cares a lot about morality, so we have all reasons to suspect ‘pregnancy’ rather ‘caste’ as the motive of this murder.”

If Indian family cares so much about “morality” why are they commiting the sin of murder?

All of a sudden ‘honor killing’ has got momentum in the recent times.
This is more prevalent in north-Rajasthan,Harayana etc and its time for the government & NGOs to sit together to discuss ways to eradicate this evil from the society. Media should refrain from highlighting such cases again and again.

20 times more people die in road accidents in India than the so called ”dowry death”.

10 times more people die in riots in India than the so called ”dowry death”

15 times more people die due to contagious deceases in India than the so called ”dowry death”

25 times more women die due to pregnancy deaths in India than the so called ”dowry death”

100 times more people face serious fatal violence in India than the so called ”domestic violence against women”

But we hear only about violence against women! Is that because there is no foreign fund or govt grants to encash those plights?

Honor killing is the recent invention of those who aim at funds and grants. A deliberate attempt to ignore the fact that it is not a GENDER issue. (just like they say female foeticide for abortion)

You are more confused.

What are these lines!!!!!

“Those age old cultural heritage and so called moral values are long gone. India has changed, Indians have changed, values have changed, attitude, approach, goals and missions have changed but those who play the CASTE CARD has yet to change!”

I feel so called changed human animals want to be the like street dogs and pigs, whenever they have lust just look nearby opposite sex and have fun……

So called changed animals want to be pigs/dogs….. Definitely those won’t be allowed…..

These guys needs to study the genetics first, before start complaining about the cultural heritage and moral values . And understand how nature preventing the sexual union between near relation (I want to indicate the same gotra marriage). Children of the same gotra parents always have weak immune system and other health problems. These are not achieved overnight. If you don’t understand it, this is your problem. This doesn’t mean cultural heritage and moral values are not required. Your complaint is something else. That is related to killing. In my opinion parents has to confirm for those cultural heritage and moral values in the kids. Those parents who are unable to match to handover the cultural heritage and moral values in the kids should be punishable.

Try to be a human being first. Then the thoughts will become humane. If thoughts become humane then their deeds will also become humane. What do you mean by “Definitely those won’t be allowed” Who gave you the right to dictate on other’s life and liberty? By giving lecture on gothra and its genetics are you justifying a cold blooded murder???

Can you link us to some scientific studies done on same gotra children and their genetic defects?

Its not a matter of gotra or honor or lust or whatever; its a matter of MURDER and should be dealt as MURDER, period!

Actually I am missing the entire point here. To begin with, the media hardly ever plays the caste card while reporting such instances. In some cases the caste becomes the highlight of the murder as the killing takes place the honour of the caste!such as the Gujjars and many other castes and clans in Rajasthan.secondly, how is killing of family LECHEROUS killing? what is the logic you are using behind the use of this term?

Try not ostracize yourself. Some people do miss the point about honour killing. How does killing of children be “honour” killing? Thats what getting published as “MOTIVE” of the killing. Same way killing for parents in the above mentioned cases (if you are aware of the whole news) the motive is nothing but “LUST”.

To make it more clear

Honour killing = Murder to ‘safeguard’ the honour of ones own family/caste
Lecherous killing = Murder to ‘safeguard’ ones own sexual interests.

very truly put in.
