BJP will implement uniform civil code, always keeps its promises: Amit Shah to News18

When asked about the ruling BJP’s plans for the proposed Unified Civil Code (UCC), Home Minister Amit Shah pointed out Monday in Gujarat that his party is keeping its promises.

Speaking at the News18 India Gujarat Adhiveshan event, the home minister said that there should be no laws based on religion in any secular country.

‚ÄúSince 1950, our manifesto has stated that we will bring a Uniform Civil Code. In every secular nation there should be equal laws for the citizens of all religions. This is the promise of our manifesto and we will deliver on it… We have promised a Ram temple in Ayodhya and you will see it. We promised to remove triple talaq, and we did,” he said in the exclusive interview with Network18 Group Editor-in-Chief Rahul Joshi.

Congress should also clearly state whether or not it supports the UCC, Shah said.

Asked how the Uniform Civil Code would be introduced in Gujarat, he said the assembly will draft and implement a law based on the constitution.

With parliamentary elections approaching, Gujarat last month joined the list of BJP-ruled states that have called for the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code (UCC).

Home Affairs Minister Harsh Sanghavi and Union Minister Parshottam Rupala announced that the state will set up a commission headed by a retired Supreme Court judge to review all aspects of UCC implementation.

Matters like marriage, inheritance, adoption, succession, etc. are governed in India by the personal laws of different religious communities.

Goa is the only state in India where all communities including Hindus, Muslims and Christians are under the same law when it comes to marriage, divorce, succession, etc.
