    Uttarakhand Government tabled the UCC bill in the assembly

    ST communities are exempted from UCC

    Bill forces me to follow a different religion: Owaisi

The Uttarakhand Government led by Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami tabled the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) bill in the state legislative assembly on 6th February. Within its ambit is a uniform law in issues pertaining to marriage, divorce, land, property and inheritance for all citizens of the state except the Scheduled Tribe (ST) communities. Many provisions of the bill have become controversial with many factions of society responding to it in different ways. 

President of the AIMIM Asaduddin Owaisi took to X to highlight some of the concerns he had with the bill. “The Uttarakhand Civil Code Bill  is nothing but a Hindu Code applicable for all. Firstly, hindu undivided family has not been touched. Why? If you want a uniform law for succession and inheritance, why are Hindus kept out of it? Can a law be uniform if it doesn’t apply to the majority of your state? Why have tribal communities been excluded? Can it be uniform if one community is exempt. Next, there is the question of fundamental rights. I have a right to practise my religion and culture, this Bill forces me to follow a different religion and culture. In our religion, inheritance and marriage are part of religious practice, it is a violation of Articles 25 & 29 to force us to follow a different system,” his post highlighted.
