India is a country of multi-religions and multi languages. Number of people is governed by their personal laws. It leads to different treatment meted out to different classes of people in their personal laws.
The uniform civil code as envisaged in the Article 44 of the Constitution includes inter alia, entire gambit of family laws. As far as the uniform legislation is concerned, we have almost covered every aspect of law except matrimonial laws. There is no uniform civil code of law applicable to the marital relation of all, irrespective of ethnic or religious affiliations. So through Article 44, the modern State is called upon to perform its onerous responsibility of giving uniform civil code on the above subject, applicable to all the citizens of India.
