New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has issued notice to the Home Ministry and the Law Ministry on the PIL filed on the demand for uniform Civil Code ie the implementation of uniform civil code. The Central Government must keep its appeal before the court before the next hearing on July 8 on this petition.
The petition has been filed by BJP leader and lawyer Ashwani Upadhyay. It is said in the petition that it is necessary to introduce a uniform civil code to promote mutual unity, brotherhood and national integrity in the country. Upadhyay says that Article 14, 15 and 44 of the Constitution have been asked to implement uniform civil code, but the government has not yet created it.
The petitioner has approached the court that he should direct the central government to create a uniform civil code for the citizens of the country, in which all the religions, castes and sects should be given the same level of equality and should be similarly effective on all.
It has also been suggested in the petition that the government applies it to the personal law of the communities and customs of different communities. That is, the customs of any religion and community should not be applied on the basis of personal law but on the basis of the same civil code. Upadhyay has also demanded to constitute a judicial commission or a high level committee within three months.
