Sania Farooqui’s fear of UCC unfounded

In response to Code of control | The Indian Express by Sania Farooqui

Author herself says there’s no draft of UCC in absence of which it is hard to tell how UCC would affect individual rights. Yet there is an underlying assumption that whatever it will be, will be a means of Hindutva bullying minority. This fear is unfounded. The Hindutva narrative by BJP has ruined UCC debate. They raise it to fan Sanghi ego and divisive politics but any person with slightest idea of laws  and constitution should be assured that UCC doesn’t mean imposing majoritarian laws on minority. If UCC ever comes, it would be on lines of Special Marriage Act, 1954 and ideally UCC should’ve happened at the time of enacting the Constitution itself.
