Petitioner for Women’s Entry in Mosques Wants UCC Too

 

AGENCIES / New Delhi

A petition filed in the Supreme Court seeking directions to all mosques to allow Muslim women in for prayers. In the 55-page petition, the petitioner whose name is Yasmeen Zuber Ahmad Peerzade has one more demand: implementation of Uniform Civil Code in the country.

It urged the SC to consider if preventing women from entering mosques is violation of Article 44 – the section of the Constitution that talks about Uniform Civil Code. “Whether the act of preventing the females from entering mosque is violative of Article 44 of the Constitution of India, which encourages the State to secure a uniform civil code for all citizens, by eliminating discrepancies between various personal laws currently in force in the country,” the petitioner asked the court.“It is submitted that the Legislature has failed to ensure the dignity and equality of women in general and Muslim women in particular.

Despite the observations of this Hon’ble Court for the past few decades, Uniform Civil Code remains an elusive Constitutional goal that the Courts have fairly refrained from enforcing through directions and the Legislature has dispassionately ignored except by way of paying some lip service,” reads the petition.
