In his piece Outlaw the Muslim Personal Law Board; Ensure Five Constitutional Paths for Reform author commentator and social reformer (also the Director of South Asia Studies Project at the Middle East Media Research Institute Washington DC) Tufail Ahmad writes "It (AIMPLB) is unconstitutional because such organisations were established with the objective of working against the fundamental rights guaranteed under the constitution Since its founding in 1973 the AIMPLB has endorsed Sharia courts across India and runs a legal system parallel to the Indian constitution… It is a privately-owned NGO that rules over the lives of Muslim masses The ideas propagated by this anti-equality organisation do not fall within the sphere of freedom of speech" And falling into the elaborate trap laid by such regressive interest groups the Left has conflated the battle for gender justice personal liberty and equality before law with the narrative that Article 25 of the Indian Constitution (that allows each and every individual to follow practise and propagate the religion of his or her choice) is in danger if even a discussion over common civil code is undertaken You can retain your lifestyle wear beard kurta and pyjama A uniform civil code is a human rights code nothing to do with your identity https://tco/p2acqjhGYR — Tufail Ahmad (@tufailelif) October 13 2016 The ruse of using identity politics to cloud the debate over a progressive reform isn’t surprising The interest groups led by the entitled maulanas and maulvis will do it to hang on to power and political parties — led by the Congress — will do it to keep Indians divided along religious fault lines A common civil code in line with the CrPC and IPC does not harm the plurality of a nation Giving women — and not just Muslim women — the ability to decide the course of their lives cannot be at odds with the right to practice one’s own religion If certain retrogressive practices come in the way those must be tested on the altar of Article 14 of the Indian Constitution — which guarantees that "the state shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India" — and dealt accordingly as was done by Jawaharlal Nehru and BR Ambedkar during the Hindu law reforms It is another matter that the Congress now finds itself on the dustbins of history precisely because it has shifted away from the progressiveness of past toregression of present But the Left surely must look through the ruse To quote Guha again from his Hindustan Times column: "…left-wing intellectuals who oppose a common civil code disavow the progressive heritage of socialist and feminist movements in India and across the world They are — whether they sense it or not — apologists for the status quo whose tortured and convoluted arguments only serve the interests of Muslim patriarchs and the Islamic clergy" If uniform civil code is not good for nation then democracy secularism equality justice are not good for nation — taslima nasreen (@taslimanasreen) October 13 2016 If the Left has ceded its space it is only natural that the Right would step in to fill the vacuum To raise the bogey of "communal agenda" against the Right for leading the cause for common civil code is end of logic To suggest as some left-wing commentators have done that the NDA government is "raising the pitch for one nation one law to polarize the electorate" ahead of UP elections reflects stunning arrogance and total disdain towards the electorate Reform can’t be bad politics There was considerable opposition towards Nehru and Ambedkar’s move during codification of Hindu law The effects of the reforms are evident The Left must abandon its reflexive fear that Indian secularism can be hijacked by a few indeed, Oviya isn’t coming back to Bigg Boss Tamil.” The film, Ayushmann’s this film yet again touches upon the less discussed topic, 6-2 victory over Spaniard David Ferrer in an earlier third-round match.
