Shafilea Ahmed - Day of Remembrance 14th July

The annual day of remembrance is held each year on July 14th to remember those lost to honour killings. 

The Day of Memory was inspired by Bradford-born Shafilea Ahmed who was murdered by her parents in 2003 after suffering years of abuse for becoming 'too westernised'. 

There are an estimated 12 honour killings each year in the UK although the exact number is unknown.

"In almost 25 years of campaigning I have rarely heard from families or communities speaking out against the horror of honour killings, so who remembers the victims? Each year on July 14th we do. We celebrate victim's lives and remember them as the most honourable of beings." Jasvinder Sanghera CBE  karmanirvana.org.uk
