Problem Relating to the Introduction of Common Civil Code

  • Another major hurdle that we find in the relation between the majority and the minority is relating to the failure of Governments which have assumed power so far, in the introduction of a common civil code.
  • It is argued that social equality is possible only when a common civil code is enforced throughout the nation.
  • Some communities, particularly the Muslims oppose it.
  • They argue that the imposition of a common civil code, as it is opposed to the “Shariat” will take away their religious freedom.
  • This issue has become controversial today. It has further widened the gap between the religious communities.
