Samaira Nazir (died 23 April 2005) was a 25-year-old British Pakistani woman who was murdered by her family members. She was a victim of honor killing.

Samaira Nazir was a graduate of Thames Valley University and recruitment consultant. She fell in love with an Afghan immigrant in Britain and wished to marry him, defying her family members. She had rejected the suitors her family wanted her to marry. Believing that this had brought disrespect to the family, her brother Azhar Nazir (30) and a 17-year-old cousin Imran Mohammed murdered her by stabbing her more than 18 times using four knives, while she was held down by her mother. This savage attack was performed in front of other family members - including two of their nieces, aged two and four.

On July 14, 2006 a British jury sentenced the brother and a cousin of Samaira Nazir to life imprisonment. Her father was also charged but fled to Pakistan.

John Reid, a Detective Inspector from the Metropolitan Police working the case, said: "There is nothing at all honourable about her brutal death."
