Compare and contrast honor killings in India and Pakistan Name Instructor Course Date Abstract The Muslim communities have been the most victims of honor killings across the world.

It is the awareness that will help the world to stand firm and strong against such traditional cases of murder. References Bloom P. C. (n.d.). Hindu vs. Muslim Honor Killings.
