After almost 75 years of independence, now Uttar Pradesh (UP) decides to implement Uniform Civil Code (UCC) within this part of the State (signifies country). UP Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Saturday (23/04/2022) said that the state government was seriously planning to implement the UCC in the state. UP is the second state after Uttarakhand to announce implementation of the UCC. The statement came only a few hours after the Union home minister Amit Shah also hinted that the BJP was set to shift its focus on the issue.
People who are peace-loving, Constitution-abiding and having common sense, would definitely support this endeavor/decision. There will be more and more voices cutting across party lines, in support of UCC in other states also.
And, the so-called secular-liberal gang members would again start burning. They would oppose the decision citing various excuses, but won't dare to outrightly oppose the decision fearing public backlash.
