Honor Killings

Is there any historical evidence present to suggest that Sikhs indulged in honor killings of women, girls, children, etc, in order to protect them from molestation/assault/rape in the 18th century?

There were cases of honor killings done by Sikhs during the Partition riots of 1946/47.

Thanks

I've never heard of such, but interesting question

Remember, you had mentioned (something like this) that according to British census, Sikhs were involved in killing their daughters (foeticide or infanticide) a lot. What was it exactly?

Have you (or anyone else) found any references to such practices during the Mughal/Afghan rule? Where the killings were performed in order to save the females from rape/slavery, etc.

Also, are there any references to Sikh women committing mass suicides to save their honor during the 18th century.

During Nadir Shah's invasion of Delhi, I think Sikh women in Delhi committed suicides in order to save their honor.

It is well known, that sikh men in 1947 would give their daughters tablets of poison to take if muslims men took over the trains going from now pakiland to now panjab. rather than getting raped by these scums, is this considered  honour killing?

There is a recent case in the old baily  (only serious crimes) in london where a paki father got his daughter raped and killed as a honour killing..

Guess that would be considered as a part of honor killings.

Thanks for the info Paaji.

Read nidar singhs new book...he mentions what guruji says about satis...also honour killings. 

There are two Charitars (there might be more) which talk about women becoming Satis, but those were loose women. They became Satis in order to cover their sin(s) and to illustrate the society that they were honorable women, but the fact is that they were dirty/unethical.

well there is 2 types of honour kiling...

1)one to take a life to protect honour/dignity (all those involved are in consent )

2) to take life to guards ones ego..(victim is not in consent)

figure it out.. 

from a personal point, sikhs are becoming thick f**ing idiots, cont read behind the lines and want to be spoon fed.. grow some.. seriously..

But when defeat and dishonor was imminent, Sikh men started to prepare for the battle till death. While their men fought, the Sikh women started gathering near a well around the garden. When just women and children were left, Maan Kaur led all the women to a large well inside the Haveli. She recited "Japuji Sahib" the Sikh prayers and jumped inside the well. Over 93 Sikh women followed her and all committed mass suicide in order to save their honor.

This is what people of Dharmic background did in India. Especially among the Khshatriya, warrior tribes/peoples of India. There is a tradition of ‘ਜੌਹਰ’ where Rajput and Khshatriya women would pull out their sword and slaughter the old and young before setting themselves on fire (though drowning, slitting their own throat and other methods were also employed) to avoid rape, enslavement, and humilitation at the hands of the enemy. The Punjabi and Hindi phrase ਜੌਹਰ ਵਿਖਾਉਣਾ (literally translating to ‘ to show Jauhar’) comes from this. It’s a proud Khatriya tradition. It was considered an act of resistance and noncompliance. Shaheed Bibi Anoop Kaur Ji is an example of this.
