One country one constitution one law
One country one constitution one law is the dream we all see with open eyes. There are numerous laws prevailing in the society. These existent laws hold a different meaning for the different sections of the society.
Unity is strength
There prevail division and discrimination in the Indian society on multiple grounds. This discrimination leads to distortion of harmony within the country. People may win but regardless of this, the loser is the entire nation which has to suffer on account of these situations. The fact to lament upon is the lack of unity and brotherhood among the people.
People lack an ethical code of conduct and moral values. They have bound themselves in the shackles of greed and selfishness. Primarily, one must understand that Indian society has been blessed with diversification and it should be considered as its strength rather than turning it out to be the biggest weakness of the nation.
This unity among the people living in the country would help the nation fight against all the evils. Thus, the notion of bringing in one law for one nation having one constitution would serve the purpose quite well.
The recent news
India is the country where multiple civil laws are in existence. With the recent declaration by the Supreme Court on “triple talaq“ claiming it to be illogical and unconstitutional the hype for bringing in the common law for the entire nation has gained momentum.
All you need to know about UCC
UCC stands for the uniform civil code. This code when introduced would be applicable to the entire nation on the issues pertaining to marriage, adoption, divorce, and inheritance. Unlike today; where different laws persist for the above issues depending on the religions prevailing in the society.
The need for the UCC
The Indian Preamble declares India to be a secular state and pardons all the discriminations that exist due to different religions. The Indian Constitution guarantees different rights to its citizens and right to equality is one of them. With the introduction of UCC, this right would be exercised effectively by the citizens of the country.
One nation one law
We all aspire for a new beginning. India is on the pace of its development and factors like these are the hindrances. We need to sort things out and have a sound legal structure to bring in justice. The agenda is not to favor the particular sections of the society. Rather, the focus is on benefitting the nation as a whole with the code of conduct in force. However, the effective implementation of the ethical laws is mandatory to ensure continuous progress.
The concept of uniform civil code was introduced when the perplexities regarding the issues like marriage and divorce rose to an alarming rate. The initial problem came from the Muslim society which preached and practiced the policy of triple talaq. The Muslim community laws were such that they suppressed the women. The supporters raised their voices against the discrimination and pleaded for justice.
The role of SC
The Supreme Court is accountable for the personal laws prevailing in the society. Being the supreme authority it is ought to deliver the justice in favor of the entire nation which it actually did by banning the triple talaq policy of the Muslims and accepting the proposal to bring in the UCC. UCC would serve as a game changer and would help in achieving the dream of one country one constitution one law.
The abolishment of the discriminatory policies would bring in the revolution of the masses. Truly and undoubtedly, India would become a happy place to live and be called a secular state after coming out of the vicious circle of multiple laws based on religion. The sound implementation and coming into force of this uniform law would bring independence to the country in the true sense. It would lead to women empowerment; eliminating violence and suppression; thereby strengthening the nation as a whole. The loopholes would be covered and the country would become a progressing nation on all grounds.
As the words by Mahatma Gandhi mark “Be the change you wish to see in the world”.
The country stands strong in all aspects only when it has the strong political and a legal backbone. The capability of the country to ensure speedy justice comes as a cherry on the cake. The honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi has undoubtedly revolutionized the entire nation. Be it demonetization or digitalization his moves will prove beneficial for the country in a long run. Think of the universal law prevailing in the entire nation; the things would undoubtedly change for good.
India is an entity to reckon with, thanks to the impressive advancements made in various fields. Our national dignity has acquired many cultural, political and social hues which contribute uniquely towards its laudable coherence.
