Is a Uniform Civil Code applicable and acceptable in Nagaland State? Why?


Some of those who voted YES had this to say:

• Yes. Since Nagaland is a part of the India union, it will have no choice but to accept the Uniform Civil Code. The Constitution of India has to supersede Article 371(A).

• Yes. to recognize the identity.



Some of those who voted NO had this to say:

• No. In a diverse and democratic country like India, you cannot force a uniform civil code. It goes against all democratic norms and principles.

• No its is not applicable and acceptable anywhere in India. The Uniform Civil Code violates the basic essence of democracy and is not tenable in a modern society that is full of diversity.

• That’s not applicable, the one who thought of this must be stupid or something.

• No… because it will nullify Art 371A.

• No way, where will our custom go?

• UCC is not acceptable because the Bible told us not to yoke together with unbelievers. Not applicable unless NLA decides so under 371A protection. What worries us is our elected members who will do anything for money, even otherwise, the law once forced will directly or indirectly impact us as we cannot live in isolation. We must join groups that opposes the move to introduce UCC.

• No unless 3\4 of the legislators agree and I am sure none of them want to commit political hara kiri. Anyway change if any needed must come from inside not from outside. Anyway I feel this isn’t a debate worth having.

• Common sense answer will say NO. At the same time it should not be taken for granted. We Nagas keep talking about Article 371(A), but we should know that there is nothing special about this Article. Once the Uniform Civil Code comes in, it will supersede Article 371(A).

• Not at all. It is not possible in a diverse country like India.



Some of those who voted OTHERS had this to say:

• A uniform civil code is a very crucial task for any democratic and secular country. It should strive and be able to help, guide and lead people towards the path of positivity, tolerance, respect, unity, progress for all -irrespective of -religion, caste, colour, political affiliations etc.

• If the contents of the code, in any way, tend to intrude, corrupt, control or negate other religions, cultures, traditions, values, practices or their adherences and posses to have any harmful implications, it should not be applied in any state.

• Trying to “Hindunise” all India ignoring the fact that by the term “Hindustan”, Europeans referred to India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Burma and Sri Lanka in their writings.

• In India Uniform Civil Code is not possible without consensus. So there’s no point of talking about a particular state. To be precise Nagaland is distinct from other Indian States moreover as long as the special provision to Nagaland state under Article 371(A) is in place then the UCC is not possible.
