- Almost all the countries of the world have a common civil code for all their citizens. The basic need behind the formulation of a uniform civil code is to end discrimination based on religions.
- In a country like India where the principle of equality of all citizens is enshrined in the constitution, different sets of personal laws for different religious communities go against this very principle of the constitution.
- The crusade for the implementation of the uniform civil code should get the support of all progressive and right-thinking citizens of the country. It is the need of the hour.
- In a nutshell, uniform civil code is necessary to effect an integration of a country as diversified as India by bringing all the communities into a common platform which do not form the essence of a single particular religion
