Uniform civil code IS NOT SAME as Common Civil code

The Civil Code which we want to be made Uniform , meaning that Civil Code should be applied in the same manner to every citizen in the country ..refers toa collection of laws in regard to Marriage, Divorce, Inheritance, Succession of property, religious affairs , etc. Since Democracy by its ver nature have been about pluralism, such laws have started to become pluralistically accepted by the courts and constitutions in many other democratic societies. IT MUST BE EMPHASISED THAT THE CIVIL CODES are different from the CRIMINAL CODE , which remain HOMOGENOUS ALREADY in all the democratic countries. The CRIMINAL CODES are a collection of laws which deal with crimes as Homicide, Evidencing, Adultry, Nuisance, Torts laws. For the information of interested readers, the other set of laws which too remain homogenously applied already for natural reasons are Administrative laws, Corporate and Business laws, such as Contract Laws. There are not many issues faced by the citizens in regard to any non-uniform application of the Civil Code. The area of disputes are pecularly in regard to Adultry, Monogamy, non-equitable treatment of Women within different religions leading to potential social ills and disorder within the society. However, the UCC too does not guarantee any good resolution of these problems.
