The book contains an analytical, graphic and yet, judicious study of the much debated and controversial topic of a suitable legislation on “Uniform Civil Code” for all the citizens of India despite their religion or race or ethnicity in compliance with the constitutional mandate under Article 44. The author has most capably and creditably examined the subject in all its multidimensional aspects and in view of the fact that, like in India, in almost all countries of the world, Muslims co-exist with other religion/ethnic or racial groups and are governed by the same Civil Laws without any animus or discordant relationship with their fellow countrymen. Relevant “Ayyats” have been quoted from the Quran along with various judicial verdicts, vis-a-vis the reforms made in other Islamic countries of the world, wherein personal laws have been subjected to suitable change in view of the prevalent local conditions. The author has dispassionately and unequivocally brought before the intelligentsia the fact that unfortunately the subject has generated a lot of unavoidable and spiteful controversy, which sprung not from reasons, but from misconstructed religious sentiments. The entire contents of the book are thought provoking, and they give an impetus to intellectuals to explain to the people in general, and Muslim in particular, the merits and advantages of the Uniform Civil Code and exterminate their unfounded fears.About the Author
