The fundamental rights under Article 25, each and every one to follow, the right to practice and propagate religion of his / her choice. Something that is really disturbing Article 25 and the harmony among minorities is the Uniform civil code.
Uniform civil code is the proposal to replace the personal laws based on the scriptures and customs of each major religious community in India with a common set governing every citizen. These laws are distinguished from public law and cover marriage, divorce, inheritance, adoption and maintenance. The Bharatiya Janta Party and the Left support it while the Congress Party and All India Muslim Personal Law Board oppose it. Clerics of prominent Muslim organisations have decided to boycott Law Commission’s public consultation over Uniform Civil Code. Setting aside their internal differences, clerics have also made an “honest appeal to the (Muslim) community to boycott and not respond to the questionnaire of the Law Commission.” All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), which is defending triple talaq before the Supreme Court, on Thursday rallied clerics of prominent Muslim organisations to claim that “the Modi government (BJP) is trying to divert public attention from its failures.”
To show opposition over this issue All India Muslim Personal Law Board has launched a signature campaign. separate forms are designed for Men and women.
