Author(s): Omlata Raj
Abstract: This paper depicts personal laws in India, the issues of uniform common code and gender equity from a human rights perspective. A Uniform Civil Code indicates the possibility of same arrangement of common principles or civil rules for the citizens independent of their religion are they Hindus, Muslims or Christians. This supersedes the rights of citizens to be governed under different personal laws based on their religion or ethnicity. The purpose concealed in the uniform civil code is to eliminate the contradictions based on religious ideologies and promote the concept of national integration. All these things would be discussed in the paper and later we will reach into the conclusion that whether uniform civil code would really bring welfare to the society or not.
