NEW DELHI, Nov 24: The BJP is committed to bringing Uniform Civil Code (UCC) after all democratic debates and discussions are concluded, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Thursday.
When asked about UCC, Shah said it is the BJP's promise to the people of this country, right from the Jan Sangh days.
Not only BJP, the Constituent Assembly had also advised Parliament and states to bring UCC at an opportune time, because for any secular country, laws should not be on the basis of religion. If the nation and state are secular, how can laws be based on religion? For every believer, there should be one law passed by Parliament or the state Assemblies," Shah said at the Times Now Summit.
The commitment of the Constituent Assembly was forgotten over a period of time, he claimed.
