In the name of caste and religion, young people are being shamed, brutally assaulted and murdered by
their relatives and family members for falling in love with someone from a different caste. We have been
raising the issues of honour-related crimes since the organization started in 2005. We monitor these
crimes, take on legal fights against them and work on changing the public’s awareness and view
regarding honour-related violence.
Since 2017, we have been able to get three landmark judgements on honour-related killings and have
now broken the myth that honour killing does not exist in Tamil Nadu. Through our campaigning and
advocacy work, we urge for a special law against honour related crimes, including honour killing and suicides.
