Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday vouched for Uniform Civil Code and said that if justice is to be given to Muslim women, then this law has to be implemented across the country.
Talking to the media in the capital Delhi, Sarma said that every Muslim woman in the country wants the Uniform Civil Code to be implemented at the earliest. ”This is not our issue, but every Muslim woman in the country wants that UCC should be implemented because no Muslim woman wants her husband to live with 3 other wives,” he added.
Notably, the debate on Uniform Civil Code has started again across the country. First of all, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat had talked about implementing it in his state. Since Uttarakhand, there has been a demand to implement it in many BJP ruled states. However, the opposition is still not unanimous on this issue. However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board is already opposing the Uniform Civil Code.
