Uniform Civil Code

In Uniform Civil Code Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that a common code is in no way related to uniformity or national unity. Even those who follow the same civil code have regularly fought with one another. In reality, the uniform civil code is an impracticable dream. Evidence to support this view exists in the Constitution itself, if we compare Articles 44 and 371-A. Law is not superior to any other social convention created by men. Human law too has its limitations. After a certain point its grip on human society vanishes. What is actually needed to make India a united, peaceful and developed country is national character. True patriotism is essential for the advancement of the country. Further, the importance of education is so great for the purpose of national construction that, in comparison, the matter of a common civil code is simply a non-issue.
