Campaign: Establishing a Statutory Definition for Honour Based Abuse

#Push4Change Campaign Calls for Urgent Action

Honour Based Abuse (HBA) remains hidden in the shadows of our communities, eluding detection due to its concealed nature. Despite three decades of increased awareness, addressing Honour Based Abuse is an ongoing challenge, hindered by the lack of a clear statutory definition.

Karma Nirvana is delighted to announce the launch of our campaign to put a statutory definition of Honour Based Abuse in place. This launches on International Women’s Day (8th March 2024), in memory of Fawziyah Javed.

Channel 4 recently aired The Push: Murder on the Cliff, which follows the trial of Kashif Anwar for the murder of Fawziyah Javed, who was pushed from Arthur’s Seat while pregnant. Fawziyah’s murderer was convicted; however, the Javed family are still left with the loss of their only child.
