The Pushkar Singh Dhami government presented the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) bill in the Uttarakhand Assembly on Tuesday, marking a significant step towards legal reform and societal transformation. If passed and enacted into law,

Uttarakhand would become the first state in the country to implement the UCC, paving the way for uniformity and equality in civil laws governing marriage, divorce, inheritance, and other personal matters.

Amidst the buzz of anticipation, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami introduced the bill during the special session of the Assembly, eliciting chants of “Jai Shri Ram” from some quarters.

However, opposition leaders and members of Muslim organizations voiced their dissent, staging protests against the bill’s introduction. The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) criticized the bill, expressing concerns about its potential implications for certain communities.

Maulana Khalid Rashid Farangi Mahali, an executive member of AIMPLB, highlighted the need for careful consideration, pointing out that certain communities might be exempted from the provisions of the UCC. He emphasized the importance of ensuring uniformity in laws while respecting the diverse religious and cultural traditions of the country.

SP MP ST Hasan echoed these sentiments, asserting that any law contradicting the teachings of the Quran would be unacceptable to Muslims. He emphasized the longstanding practice of providing daughters with a share in ancestral property as mandated by Islamic law, questioning the need to deviate from established norms.

The introduction of the UCC bill fulfills a campaign promise made by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the 2022 Uttarakhand assembly elections. With the BJP’s return to power in the state,

the bill has now been brought forward in alignment with the party’s electoral commitment. Once passed by a majority in the Assembly, the UCC bill will supersede personal religious laws, ushering in a new era of legal uniformity and social cohesion.

As the debate surrounding the UCC bill unfolds, it underscores the complex interplay between legal principles, religious beliefs, and cultural traditions.

While proponents argue for the need for uniformity and equality before the law, critics raise valid concerns about the potential impact on religious minorities and diverse communities.

Ultimately, the fate of the UCC bill will be decided through democratic deliberation and legislative process, shaping the future of legal governance in Uttarakhand and setting a precedent for the rest of the nation.
