Shamed: The Honour Killing That Shocked Britain - by the Sister Who Fought for Justice

The courageous, inspiring story of Sarbjit Kaur Athwal, who bravely fought for justice, risking her own life, after her sister-in-law was murdered in an honor killing by her husband’s family

In 1998, Sarbjit Athwal was called by her husband to attend a family meeting. It looked like just another family gathering. An attractive house in west London, a large dining room, two

In 1998, Sarbjit Athwal was called by her husband to attend a family meeting. It looked like just another family gathering. An attractive house in west London, a large dining room, two brothers, their mother, one wife. But the subject they were discussing was anything but ordinary. At the head of the group sat the elderly mother. She stared proudly around, smiling at her children, then raised her hand for silence. “It’s decided then,” the old lady announced. “We have to get rid of her.” “Her” was Surjit Athwal, Sarbjit’s sister-in-law. Within three weeks of that meeting, Surjit was dead: lured from London to India, drugged, strangled, and her body dumped in the Ravi River, never to be seen again. After the killing, risking her own life, Sarbjit fought secretly for justice for nine long, scared years. Eventually, with immense bravery, she became the first person within a murderer’s family ever to go into open court in an honor killing trial as the prosecution’s key witness, and the first to waive her anonymity in such a trial. As a result of her testimony, the trial led to the first successful prosecution of an honor killing without the body ever being found. But her story doesn’t end there. Since the trial, her life has been threatened; her own husband arrested after an allegation of intimidation. This is a story of fear and of horror—but also of immense courage, and a woman who risked everything to see that justice was done.

    review of another edition

    world

    I found the first part of the book fascinating – describing the author’s upbringing in a loving but strict Sikh family, where she was strongly protected from any contamination from standard British culture. For instance she went to an ordinary school, but the moment she got home she had to take off her uniform. She wasn’t allowed to go to the homes of the other school children, or allowed to invite any of them back to her house. She was brought up almost wholly within the confines of her own cul

    In the latter part of the book she has an arranged marriage to someone who was part of a British Sikh family; a family run by a murderous and controlling matriarch. This woman was literally murderous – arranging for the killing of the author’s rather rebellious sister-in-law. A so called honour killing. The rest of the book, covering a period of about seven years, explains how this woman and her son (also implicated) came to be bought to justice. Regrettably the writing in this part of the book left me unmoved. I just couldn’t get into it.

    This book was culturally interesting, but not very readable.

    it was amazing

    Absolutely amazing. I can’t imagine how Sarbjit went through all this. She is the one of the bravest people I have ever come across. She is absolutely amazing. I loved reading the book and can’t imagine what it was like for her to go through all that, I’m so glad it was all worth it in the end and justice has been made. She did what she had to do even though she was risking her own life to protect someone else’s name and she fought until the end. So glad I read this book it’s now one of my favou

    really liked it

    I wouldn’t say this was an enjoyable read but it was a very interesting read. It was a clash of cultures, they lived within their Indian Sikh culture/religion in a western world where honoring your elders is everything and bringing shame upon your family should be avoided at all costs.

    Surjit unfortunately brought shame on her family simply because she was fighting against the restraints of an abusive and bullying mother in law and husband. Being exposed to the western way of life was very tempti

    Surjit unfortunately brought shame on her family simply because she was fighting against the restraints of an abusive and bullying mother in law and husband. Being exposed to the western way of life was very tempting for her. So Bachun Khan her mother in law decided she “had to go”. Both her sons who were insipid mummy’s boys did her bidding.

    The worst part I thought was when Sarbjit had a ruptured ulcer and was bleeding from every orifice in her bathroom, one of her daughters fetched her husband and Sarbjit asked him to call an ambulance. His first phone call was to his mother asking for permission to call for an ambulance. WOW!

    Hooray to Sarbjit for fighting for justice for her sister-in-law and finally getting it against terrible odds, ie her bullying, controlling in-laws whilst still staying true to her faith and way of life.
