The article basically focuses on the situation of Honour Killing in India. It highlights the legal provisions to tackle the crime of honour killing. It is a heinous crime, and a lot of attention is required to tackle it. An honour killing of a woman by a male relative is not an individual act of violence but one which is collective, planned, sociologically predictable, and socially approved by both lady and man in the family and community concerned. The main reason behind Honour Killing in this country is that families are against Pre-marital relationships and the matrimonial choices of the girl in the family. Honour Killings are a clear violation of human rights, and States necessarily need to protect individuals from such violations.
