Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to introduce a Uniform Civil Code, which would replace the personal laws of different religions.

The people of Tamil Nadu, including the AIADMK party, which is an ally of the BJP, might not welcome this idea.

The DMK party has criticized the BJP and suggested that if a uniform code is to be implemented, the Hindu religion should be the first to start with.

The AIADMK has been cautious in its response due to its shaky alliance with the BJP. In the past, the AIADMK opposed the Uniform Civil Code and made it a promise during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Prime Minister Modi expressed his support for the Uniform Civil Code, stating that the country cannot have different laws for different communities.

Many view this statement as a strategy for the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The Law Commission sought public opinion and input from religious organizations on this matter.

The DMK spokesperson criticized the Prime Minister, suggesting that his intention was to pressure Muslims. He argued that the government should not violate fundamental rights and should instead focus on implementing a uniform code within the Hindu religion first.

The DMK government in Tamil Nadu fulfilled its promise by appointing temple priests from all castes.

The AIADMK leaders preferred to let their general secretary, Edappadi K Palaniswami, decide the party’s stance on this issue.

The party’s previous election manifesto in 2019 opposed the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code, citing concerns about the impact on the religious rights of minorities.

However, in 2003, when the late CM J Jayalalithaa was closer to the BJP ideologically, her party adopted a resolution in favour of a Uniform Civil Code.

MDMK chief Vaiko criticized the BJP, accusing them of wanting to destroy India’s diversity. He mentioned the need for the government to prioritize the concerns of troubled regions like Manipur instead of focusing on the Uniform Civil Code.

He referred to a previous consultation paper released by the Law Commission in 2018, which highlighted the importance of preserving cultural diversity and the unity of the nation.

GK Vasan, a TMC leader and ally of the BJP, supported the NDA’s intention to implement a Uniform Civil Code, believing it would benefit individuals, communities, and the nation as a whole.
