Pakistan Radio Series Against “Honour Killings”

via www.alertnet.org

The Pakistan chapter of the UK-based international NGO, Oxfam, has recently begun broadcasting a radio series aimed at raising public awareness of honour killings. Oxfam aims to reduce social acceptance of such killings through a six-year campaign aiming at significantly reducing the number of women killed under the banner of ‘honour’. The twenty-minute programme series, prepared in both the Urdu and Sindhi language, will be broadcast from four stations of the state-run ‘Radio Pakistan’ in Sindh and Balochistan province.
