SC bans use of term ‘ghairat’ in ‘honour’ killing cases, stating murder is never honourable

In a landmark judgement concerning ‘honour killing’ cases, the Supreme Court has said that the word ‘ghairat’ must not be used to describe killings in the name of ‘honour’ as murder is ‘never honourbale and it should not be described as such’. “It will help deter such killings if the term ghairat is not used to describe them”, the top court said.
