    BBC - BBC World Service Programmes - Heart And Soul, Fame, Blame And Shame, Episode 2

    Naziz Bains married into a devout Sikh family and was expecting to lead an uneventful life as a wife and mother.

    But her world was turned upside down when her sister-in-law fell victim to an honour killing - committed by her own family, who felt shamed by the young woman's behaviour.

    For Naziz, this posed a terrible dilemma.

    Should she toe the family line, or tell the police what she knew?

    The choice she made destroyed her marriage and standing in the
    community, and meant that she had to live in fear of being killed in revenge for years.

    In conversation with Michael Ford, Naziz tells her story for the first time.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
