Congress and the DMK question the uniform civil code


Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for a uniform civil code throughout the country. This move has been questioned by the Congress and the DMK. The ruling party in Tamil Nadu feels that the uniform code should first be applied to Hindus and every person including scheduled castes and scheduled tribes should be allowed to perform pujas and pray in any temple in the country.

Congress general secretary KC Venugopal stated that the burning issue in Manipur, the poverty, price rise and unemployment issues should be addressed first.
Uniform Civil Code means a set of laws that apply to every citizen in the country and will replace religion based personal laws, rules of inheritance, adoption and succession.
This is a very sensitive issue and the law commission has started a fresh consultation process by seeking views from all stakeholders.
