Such killings occur in countries where the concept of women as a vessel of the family reputation predominates. In the Indian society, women are regarded as personal property.

It's a community mentality. Notably, there is no law to deal with honour killings in India There should be a uniform definition of honour killing so that there is no room left for ambiguity as to what constitutes that crime.
