New Delhi: As a spate of honour killings hog
the headlines, National Commission for Women Wednesday made a
plea for shunning the term "honour" and coining another
suitable term highlighting the heinousness of the crime.

At a meeting with the News Broadcasters Association and
the Broadcast Editor`s Association, NCW chairperson Girija
Vyas made a strong plea for avoiding the term "honour" killing
and coining another suitable word which highlights the
heinousness of the crime without any element of "honour".

A spate of honour killings have been reported from
northern India over he last couple of months, including from
the national capital where two such incidents were reported
in quick succession this month.
