A Christian man’s murder in India is being treated as an ‘honor killing’ — highlighting the shadow the country’s historic caste system has even within the Church.
The murder of a socially poor Dalit Catholic man who had married a woman belonging to an upper-caste Syrian Christian family has fueled protests across India’s southern state of Kerala.
A teenage Christian girl in Pakistan was reportedly killed by her own brother this week, who reportedly smashed her head in with a log as she slept, in a so-called “honor killing” over her plans to marry. Each year hundreds of women are killed in Pakistan by family members in the name of defending family honor.
