United Kingdom: Religious control freaks were responsible for at least 2,823 "honour" attacks last year. And that's just the ones reported to those police forces which record such incidents. The figures came to light as the result of a Freedom of Information request submitted by the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation.
Its director Diana Nammi said families often tried to deny the existence of honour attacks and those who carried them out werevery much respected.
She told the BBC:The perpetrators will be even considered as a hero within the community because he is the one defending the family and community's honour and reputation.
She added that there was not enough support for victims, and many needed continuing help and protection.
