Polygamy banned in india

Polygamy is banned in Uttarakhand, India


Uttarakhand is the first state in the country to implement Uniform Civil Code. Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami called a special session of the Legislative Assembly soon after Diwali to announce the introduction of Uniform Civil Code in his state. According to sources, a committee headed by Justice Ranjan Desai will submit its report to the Chief Minister within the next couple of days. 

Child marriage is a very bad thing that has been going on for a long time. It still exists in some countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar. Why marry a son or daughter before their age? This injustice should not be done to them for their mental development to be good. If you don’t have the ability to have children, if you don’t have the money, then don’t have children. But it is not right to give birth to her and marry her to another person in her childhood.

The committee’s chief justice Desai said on Saturday that a uniform civil code has been drafted for Uttarakhand. It will be submitted to the state government soon. If the Uniform Civil Code is passed by the Assembly, it will then become law.

According to the Uniform Civil Code there will be one uniform law for all citizens living in the country irrespective of religion or caste. Through the Civil Code, all citizens will follow the same rules in matters like marriage, divorce, property division. It is also known that the draft of the committee also mentions the law to stop polygamy and register cohabitation of men irrespective of all religions.

The BJP government has always been in favor of bringing uniform civil code in the country. Therefore, after Uttarakhand, political experts believe that Uniform Civil Code will be introduced in various BJP-ruled states of the country including Goa, Uttar Pradesh. Ahead of the Uttarakhand assembly elections last year, Chief Minister Dhami had promised to implement a uniform civil code in the state if the BJP came to power. After winning the polls, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami formed a committee headed by Justice Ranjan Desai to draft Uniform Civil Code.
