Sevika Samiti for UCC to save women honour
Nagpur: Rashtra Sevika Samiti believes that implementing the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is the only effective way out to protect the dignity and honour of Muslim women and strengthen the national integrity, said Samiti’s Pramukh Karyavahika Sushri Annadanam Seetha Gayatri.
Addressing mediapersons on July 8, the last day of the Samitis’s three-day national executive meeting Smt Gayatri said that the Samiti has passed a resolution demanding the immediate implementation of the UCC.
The meeting was attended by over 200 activists from all over the country to deliberate on various matters pertaining to the spread and strengthening of its activities. She said in all the developed countries all citizens are treated at par without any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed, colour, regions or sex. After Independence, there should have been UCC in our country too, but due to political compulsions this did not happen. Political leadership of India got engaged in vote bank politics and ignored the UCC, she said.
The term Civil Code is used to cover the entire body of laws related to property and otherwise in personal matters like marriages, divorce, maintenance, adoption and inheritance. As things stand there are different laws governing these aspects for different communities in India. Thus, the laws governing inheritance or divorce among Hindus would be different from those pertaining to Muslims and Christians and so on. The Samiti has an opinion that because of the different laws for different communities, there is rise in separatism, terrorism and the exploitation of women, she said.
The Supreme Court has sought opinion from Central government, Ministry of Women and Child Welfare and Attorney General. The Samiti appealed to the government to initiate steps to implement the UCC to protect the rights of the women, especially those of Muslim women. Akhil Bharatiya Sah Karyavahika Sulbha Deshpande,Nagpur Vibhag Bouddhik Pramukh Medha Nandedkar and Sah Karyvahika Leena Gahane were also present during the press conference.
