Honour crimes cut across racial, religious, cultural and regional divides. The horrific and horrendous waves of massacring, enables the young and innocent women to choose their life-partners much against the accepted social mores by the allegedly supreme caste and religious groups. The culture of regulating and controlling their life make them worsen to live in the society of haters. These acts not only impact their personal identity, but also put them in the negative shades of life. 'Honour' is rapidly engulfing the entire ocean of mankind. Amidst this scenario, it becomes inevitable to examine the status of woman in India with special reference to the patriarchal ideology of honour residing in her; social perception of the cross marriages and honour crimes in the Indian subcontinent and the role of Khap panchayats in terrorizing the Indian social scene.
