At Karma Nirvana, we have one clear aim: to stop the scandal of forced marriage and honour-based violence. No apologies. No excuses. No backing down.
If you’re here to tell us that we can please all cultures without causing the slightest bit of offence - well, frankly, you’ve come to the wrong place.
Please fill out our Helpline Feedback form, as we appreciate valuable feedback.

An incident or crime which has or may have been committed to protect or defend the honour of the family and/or community
A forced marriage is a marriage in which one or both spouses do not (or in the case of some adults with learning or physical disabilities, cannot) consent to the marriage and duress is involved. Duress can include physical, psychological, financial, sexual and emotional pressure
An arranged marriage is very different from a forced marriage. A marriage in which families take a leading role, but the parties have the free will and choice to accept or decline the arrangement.
An honour killing is sometimes carried out when victims are perceived to have caused irreversible dishonour to the family name by engaging in Western behaviours. It could be that the victim has a boyfriend or has refused an arranged marriage.
Join us in asking the Government to protect child victims of honour-based abuse by signing our Next Generation Schools Campaign
