AIMPLB moves Delhi High Court requesting to be impleaded as party in a PIL seeking implementation of Uniform Civil Code

Senior Advocate and spokesperson of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Ashwini Upadhyay had filed a PIL seeking a direction to the Central Government to draft a UCC in the spirit of the Constitution.

The Delhi High Court had last month asked the Centre to file their affidavit on a PIL seeking implementation of the Uniform Civil Code (UCC). The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), moved an application in Delhi HC today, seeking it to be impleaded as a party in a PIL seeking implementation of the Uniform Civil Code.

The Uniform Civil Code, which means having one set of identical personal laws applicable to all citizens of India irrespective of caste /creed/community dealing with the right to property; personal matters like marriage, maintenance, adoption, inheritance and divorce has been Modi government’s long-pending agenda. BJP and The Modi government has been pushing for a uniform civil code to be enforced which would end the reach of different religious laws in civil issues.

Senior Advocate and spokesperson of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Ashwini Upadhyay, who has been waging a battle in the Courts for the implementation of a Uniform Civil Code had filed a PIL seeking a direction to the Central Government to draft a UCC in the spirit of the Constitution.

The petition sought direction and instruction to the government to secure for the citizen’s justice (social, economic, and political), liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship, equality of status and to promote fraternity, assuring the dignity of the individual and unity and integrity of the nation.

The plea sought the framing of UCC in the spirit of Articles 14, 15 and 44 of the Constitution of India. It also sought setting up of a Judicial Commission to make a Uniform Civil Code.

So far, Goa is the only state that has a common civil code since 1965, which is applicable to all of its residents.

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board, which had defended the practice of triple talaq among the Muslims had earlier voiced its disapproval against UCC as well. Calling it not feasible, the Muslim Personal Law Board had blamed the law commission of not acting independently but at the behest of the Centre and called for boycotting the UCC.
