Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi describes the eight years of Modi regime as ‘the golden period’ for minorities in India, bats for Uniform Civil Code
This code is derived from the Portuguese Civil Code of 1867, which was applicable during the Portuguese rule in the state.
By all indications, the BJP-ruled states have decided to go for the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) as a prominent poll plank ahead of the 2024 general election.
Thakur who was in the national capital said, "UCC is a good step and good start. We will examine the outcome of UCC in other states and then make a decision."
A look at the Constituent Assembly debates will show that while so much has happened since India gained freedom, the Muslim viewpoint on UCC remains unchanged.
Dhami said that every institution in Uttarakhand will have to play a role in making it one of the leading states in the country by 2025 when it will celebrate 25 years of its existence.
Still, it is uniform enough to ensure equality for all Goan residents, irrespective of religion, gender etc.
Dhami on Thursday approved the formation of a committee that will go into the implementation of the UCC. The Dhami cabinet made the decision in its first cabinet meeting after taking oath.
"It will be a significant step towards fulfilling the dreams of the nation's founding fathers who framed our Constitution," said Dhami

Dhami had promised before state polls to constitute a high-powered committee comprising legal experts, senior citizens and intellectuals to draft the code.
Young Dhami had to learn to become responsible at a tender age, with his father serving the Army and Dhami helping his three sisters and mother in household chores.
Former Union Law Secretary P K Malhotra was of the view that only the central government can bring such a law by moving Parliament.
Dhami's announcement comes amid a heated debate that ensued on Hijab, a headscarf worn by Muslim women, after certain colleges in Karnataka have denied hijab-wearing students entry into classes.
