Narendra Modi govt must enforce Uniform Civil Code as promised in the BJP's manifesto
As indicated in my article "There never was any incarnation of God" published in merinews.com on 14th July,2014, I had given reasons that not only there was never any incarnation of God but no book was ever written by God.
Hence, even the Holy Quran has not been written by the God and therefore the Sharia laws are open to amendments. Therefore, Modi Government must implement Uniform Civil Code as promised in BJP's manifesto to reduce gender inequality among Muslims.

It should not be threatened by bloodshed by Muslims as feared by none other than our Supreme Court in one of the cases relating to the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code that appeared before it.

We cannot rule by being afraid of a particular community and must enforce a Uniform Civil Code so that the marriage age for each women should be beyond a certain age. Also, more than one marriage should not be allowed in any case as it is against the scheme of the nature where roughly there is one woman to one man.

A Uniform Civil Code administers the same set of secular civil laws to govern different people belonging to different religions and regions. This supersedes the right of citizens to be governed under different personal laws based on their religion or ethnicity. The common areas covered by a civil code include:

1.Personal status

2. Rights related to acquisition and administration of property

3. Marriage, divorce and adoption

Uniform Civil Code will, in the long run, ensure Equality. While other personal laws have undergone reform, the Muslim law has not. It perhaps makes little sense to allow Muslims, for example, to marry more than once, but prosecute Hindus or Christians for doing the same. Therefore, there is the demand for a uniform civil code.

Also, the Uniform Civil Code will help to promote Gender equality. Several liberals and women's groups have argued that the uniform civil code gives women more rights.
