The Politics of Personal Law in South Asia: Identity, Nationalism and the Uniform Civil Code

 
Partha S Ghosh (Author)
Synopsis
Ever since the drafting of the Indian Constitution, there has been a political debate in the country as to whether India, being a democratic and secular state, should have a Uniform Civil Code (UCC). The debate, while outlining discourses of communalism versus secularism in the country, also focuses on whether there should be a centralised view of the legal system in a given society or a decentralised view, both horizontally and vertically."As most of the South Asian States today subscribe to a decentralised view and share a common history, this study is an excellent comparative analysis of the applicability of the UCC. India figures prominently, being the most plural and vibrant democracy, as well as accounting for almost three-fourths of the region's population. This provides the backdrop for an analysis of the other states in the region.
