Greetings to all We heard a lot of arguments here. I am little disappointed because Concept of Common civil code was not addressed or didnt try. First of all Madam Lena want to react to it. Civil code according to article 44 is a directive principle of democratic state. Its a civil law. There are two kind of laws 1. civil law 2. criminal law. fact of the matter is 90% of civil laws and 100 % of criminal laws is similar and same to all. It includes marriage, dowry act, age for marriage, child labor laws and a lot more. So in these 90% civil laws and 100% criminal laws religious, regional & cultural diversity is not an issue Here they said it is gang up on one particular religion. Why might be the reason? We should think why they are protesting I dont think it’s Modi’s personal. Its origin precedes before him or his party congress discussed this matter in detail way before it. Shah Bano Begum case : she was married 1938 and lived together for 14 years, after that husband married younger women. With two wives he lived 32 years. In 1978 husband who is advocate kicked her out with 5 children. 200 rupee per month was the agreement. She didnt receive, she filed case in indore court for 500 rupee per month, court rules 25 rupee. She goes to high court, court rules 179 ruppee. Her husband Mohd Khan does triple talaq. That means after three mensus cycle she wont receive any compensation, medeival idea which means there is nothing of man is left in the woman after 3 cycles. Sha bano goes to supreme court. This poor woman who is 69 year old with 5 kids fights for justice with 7 year long case. She won with criminal procedure 125 Rajiv Gandhi with supreme majority brings a law to usurp this verdict that says mulsim husband should only support for3 months. Congress, who assumes the supreme authority of secularism. They were frightened to backlash from muslim community and crossed the court The injustice to Shah Bano was the worst in independent india. This is done by democratical elected house Civil code is not against cultural diversity. Its against misogyny. The law of seeing a woman as half man cannot be tolerated by a modern society You can celebrate your religion but with equality. Look at Islam to be a valid witness, there should be two women against one man. Also if there is a man there is no need for women. In case of parents property if there is one daughter she can only receive half of the total. If there are two daughters they will get 2/3 but if its a son he gets everything …. Kanan devan tea.. Another one daughters son wont get it but son’s son will get it. Clearly itsanti woman. Lets talk about polyandry in goa its mostly in hindus Polyandry is against law in hindus we are asking for law we are not discussing about execution. Muslim league’s representative gave an example of Dilip/Kavya mdahavn, Priyadarsah and Kamal Hassan they did divorce. nobody is against divorce here. you can have many divorces. If its impossible relationship do it as soon as possible, do a fair agreement. Divorce is a state of a healthy society, example of old movies depicting 50 years of marriage is not necessary. Divorce is not a problem, but complete control of man is the issue. mutlaq is also not an issue if you both have equal rights They say woman have mutlaq right. How many woman does it? if you check that law its comical. A man can divorce showing extra martial affairs but in this case man doesnt even have to do it. Woman cannot do it unless she is totally mad. Woman doing mutlaq without any reason like man is impossible Men do SMS talaq. letter talaq. In a society we are debasing half of the population by this law. Lets talk about goa. a woman who is 25 year old who cant have a child by 30th woman should have a son or man can ask for divorce. This is malignant rule its in hindu and muslim society also in christianity and others. So we should have a common law removing human rights violations without touching religious rituals Basis of the law should be equalit of men and women. You can use any ritual to celebrate this equality But using rituals to suppress basic human rights cannot be accepted. nagaland and mizoram laws were to add them to Indian union Common civil code is not hindu, muslim code. It doesnt matter who brings this law, even if a prime minister ditched his wife from child marriage. Whoever brings good things we should consider it Use good from everybody but it should be based on equality Talking about actors like Dilip and Priyadarsan they remarried after going through the courts With mutual consent because it has righteousness or go to court. talaq is neither of them , don’t just play with words nobody is against divorce which has justice law should be concrete without any holes. Why hindus dont have polyandry and polygamy? Is it because of complete renaissance? social reform should be assisted by rule of the land. Vishwaettan said women who follow religion should be given a major say See the fun here, they put the prey upfront. I have talked with many muslim women who protest against civil code. They say they are directed to do that. The prey is put to defend the law which exploits them. This is greatest example of cheating yourself. Religion is not an umbrella it has spread like sky. Similar example of sabari mala ready to wait that means 1. we will wait for menstrual cycle to end 2. wait till society change. Think about it people who should fight against wont do it because of religion. People outside should it, example politicians but they are helpless now, indian politics is complete theocracy , only good thing is there is not a single theocracy. No politician or party would go against religion Politicians are here to appease religions and take what religion we give them. They are also helpless. look at it Common civil code. Some progresives who say lets see it with some doubt because modi is bringing it. I ask them then. they say we should keep looking at with doubt and keep looking. Lets do something , then fix it with amalgamation of good from every body. Go for it first If anything against humans take it away. Modi is bringing for political gain. let him bring for it why cant congress bring it, why cant marxist bring it It doesnt matter what political gain he gets if its good. It doesnt matter who is doing good dont stop him. Be cautious and doubtful Dont be ‘Balance K. Nair’ that means see bad for the sake of it on both sides to be balanced. we should be positive We need it, next how we need it. Why criminal laws are same for everybody why cant civil code be same I have given examples to my students Muslims know deeply about the civil code, they go through lot of hoops to make sure their daughters inherit everything from them Everybody knows it, nobody wants to give it distant relatives. Like they say relative is a synonym of enemy They are cheating allah here Muslim law is a mix of quran, muslim laws and hadith made in 1937. it doesnt have complete backing of quran. There are islamic countries which have banned mutlaq I dont have problem with mutlaq but it should be equal There are counselling after multaq. whats the point of it? esp with mutlaq was done by man without any reason. It just make woman’s life worse Marriage, property law, adoption, inheritance etc all indians should have equal rights There shouldnt be gender difference. We dont care about religional, regional, cultural, linguistical diversity Cultural diversity wouldnt be eroded for example criminal law is common still it doesnt do anything to cultural diversity Democratic society needs equality for stability and progression. Its mentioned in the constitution. Illogical discourse, jumbling words, balance k nair shouldnt be use to block it.
