PM Modi promotes UCC and criticizes the opposition’s vote-bank politics.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the nation to follow the UCC and claimed that Muslims are being incited by the opposition over the controversial subject.
After he arrived in the city on Tuesday morning, he was talking with 3,000 workers there and more than 10 lakhs virtually. Heavy rains forced the cancellation of some of his engagements in MP’s tribal areas, but he was still able to flag off five Vande Bharat trains at the Rani Kamlapati rail station.
At a gathering named “Mera Booth, Sabse Mazboot,” Modi remarked, “Today we are witnessing how individuals are attempting to incite others in the name of a Uniform Civil Code. Can a family live peacefully if one member is subject to one set of laws while another is not?
In Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, the Prime Minister asked the audience of party members, “You tell me, in a household, how can there be one rule for one person and another law for another member? Will that house be habitable? So how can a nation with such a dual structure be able to function? We must keep in mind that the concept of equal rights for everyone is mentioned in the Constitution.
The Prime Minister criticized the opposition, saying, “These people (opposition) throw complaints against us, but they shout Musalman, Musalman. Muslim households would never have lagged in employment and education if they were truly working for the betterment of Muslims.
According to Modi, the appeasement strategy has caused several castes in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and South India, particularly in Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu, and a number of other states, to lag in development. He asserted that individuals who favor triple talaq are seriously mistreating Muslim daughters. Around 80 and 90 years ago, Egypt made triple talaq unlawful. Why was it abolished in Pakistan, Qatar, and other countries with most Muslims if necessary?
He claimed that the opposition is misleading and inciting the Muslim population by bringing up the UCC issue, which deals with a common law that governs marriage, divorce, inheritance, maintenance, and succession of property for all residents.
