Uniform Civil Code be implemented and national law to prevent inter-religion marriages without consent of parents of girls be framed
New Delhi (The Hawk): Considering highly objectionable statement of former Vice President of India Mohammed Hamid Ansari that nationalism and religion are bigger diseases than corona and increasing religious fundamentalism by leaders like Asauddin Owaisi resulting in polarisation of religion-based votes in recently held elections to Bihar state-assembly requires immediate steps to implement Uniform Civil Code also favoured by constitution-maker Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar. Even the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee once made it clear in Parliament that Uniform Civil Code would include welcome features from all religions like Islamic tradition of seeking compulsory consent from bride-to-be before marriage. Demographic-change in the country in last more than seven decades of independence continuously increasing population-share of a particular religion is a serious matter for study.
Considering ever-increasing cases of Love-Jihaad mostly involving luring innocent girls through cheating by young boys of other religions, national rather than state laws is necessary whereby it may be compulsory for seeking consent of parents of girls in courts or police-stations for such inter-religion marriages. All such necessary reformative steps can only be taken by a government like the present one which does not adopt pseudo-secularism for anti-national vote-bank politics.
