The Uniform Civil Code has been a topic of discussion in the country for a long time, the Delhi High Court has made an important comment about it. Giving a verdict in a divorce case, the court said that Uniform Civil Code is necessary in the country.
Justice Pratibha M. Singh in his judgment said that today’s India has risen above religion, caste, community. In modern India, the barriers of religion and caste are also ending. Due to this change, problems are also coming in marriage and divorce. It is not right that today’s young generation is facing these problems. For this reason, Uniform Civil Code should be implemented in the country.
During the hearing, the court said that the Uniform Civil Code, which has been expected in Article 44, should now be converted into reality. The High Court also said in its decision that this decision should be sent to the Union Law Ministry, so that it can consider it.
this was the whole matter
When the court was hearing a divorce case, the question arose in front of it whether the decision on divorce should be given according to the Hindu Marriage Act or under the rules of the Meena tribe.
In this case, the husband wanted a divorce as per the Hindu Marriage Act, while the wife wanted her to come from the Meena tribe, then divorce accordingly as the Hindu Marriage Act does not apply to her. Therefore, she wanted that the divorce petition filed by the husband in the family court should be rejected. After this petition of the wife, the husband filed a petition against her argument in the High Court. The High Court allowed the appeal of the husband and felt the need to implement the Uniform Civil Code and said the above.
