In this modern Era where women are objectified and their every act is monitored, any minute act of them puts a question mark on the upbringing, or the family background. Women are considered to be pure if they maintain their virginity or sexual purity and this factor of them carries honor of the family. Honor killing refers to the killing of the couple or the girl who marry within the same sub-caste or against the will of the family. As a consequence of promotion of the pride in this modern era, various crime incidents of honor killing were noticed. This resulted in the framing of various laws and regulations implemented by the government, as to where they should be implemented, how and why? It also raises a big question mark on some of the provisions of the Hindu Marriage Act. Certain provisions backed with criminal statue with certain objectives to be fulfilled or achieved are framed to help in the dilution of such acts. A society patriarchal in nature, where the human just wants provisions have been framed to provide safeguards against the crime.
