The UCC is against the tenets of the Quran, the holy book of the Muslims, said Samajwadi Party MP ST Hasan on Tuesday, as Uttarakhand chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami tabled the UCC bill.

Dehradun, Feb 06 (HBTV): The Uniform Civil Code is against the tenets of the Quran, the holy book of the Muslims, said Samajwadi Party MP ST Hasan on Tuesday, as Uttarakhand chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami tabled the UCC bill in the assembly.



"We won't abide by it (UCC Bill) if it is against the 'hidayat' (instructions) given to Muslims in the Quran. We don't have any issue if it is as per 'hidayat'," he told PTI.



The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has also criticised the legislation.



Maulana Khalid Rasheed Farangi Mahali, executive member, All India Muslim Personal Law Board said a few communities would be exempted from it.



Hasan questioned how can there be uniformity when few communities are exempted from it. There won't be uniformity in all the laws at all, he added. He further said that their legal committee will study the draft and will decide accordingly.



The UCC bill was promised by the Bharatiya Janata Party in the 2022 Uttarakhand assembly elections. When the bill becomes law, it will replace the personal religious laws that govern marriage, divorce, inheritance etc.



The bill is expected to sail through because of the clear BJP majority in the state assembly.
