MP Nusrat Ghani bids to ban ‘honour killing’ term

An MP is attempting to ban authorities from describing murders as “honour killings”.

Conservative Nusrat Ghani said the term was used by abusers as a “pathetic self-justification” for their violence.

She proposed a bill in the House of Commons that would ban the use of the description in official publications.

The move would make it clear that “cultural and religious sensitivities are not a barrier to justice”, the MP for Wealden in East Sussex said.
