Drafting and Tabling bills regarding the Uniform Civil Code (A.44)
India is a diverse country with multiple religions and ethnicity living within its borders. This is reflected in our legal system in the form of religion-based personal laws. The Directive Principles of State Policy which is Part IV of The Constitution of India enjoin our leaders to implement a common personal law for all religions which has been a matter of debate for generations. The Uniform Civil Code (UCC) under Article 44 is an important topic in the Constitution of India, which has given rise to a long-running debate on various aspects such as secularism, fundamental rights, and fundamental duties. The Lok Sabha also known as the House of the People is the lower house of the Indian Parliament. The members are elected directly by the Citizens of India via Universal Adult Franchise. It’s upto this venerable house to solve this burning issue.
