In last 46 years, no attempt for Uniform Civil Code: SC | Big Debate

Updated 14 Sep 2019 06:10 PM

The Supreme Court on Friday said that the makers of the Constitution had hoped and expected that the state shall endeavour to secure for the citizens a Uniform Civil Code throughout the territory of India, but till date, no action has been taken on this.

Citing the case of Goa, the apex court said: "Muslim men whose marriages are registered in Goa, cannot practice polygamy. Further, even for followers of Islam, there is no provision for a verbal divorce."

Making a reference to the Uniform Civil Code, Justice Deepak Gupta, in a judgement, said: "Though Hindu laws were codified in the year 1956, there has been no attempt to frame a Uniform Civil Code applicable to all citizens of the country despite exhortations."
