No Muslim woman wants husband to bring home 3 other wives: Assam CM on UCC

Assam CM said that implementation of the UCC is important for all Muslim women as no Muslim woman wants that her husband brings in three more wives.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has called for the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) in the country.

CM Sarma said that it is the utmost need of the hour to implement the Uniform Civil Code in the country and that everybody wants the UCC to come. He added that UCC is extremely important to ensure justice for Muslim women of India.

Talking to media persons in New Delhi, the Assam Chief Minister said that implementation of the UCC is important for all Muslim women as no Muslim woman wants that her husband brings in three more wives.

CM Sarma said that Uniform Civil Code can bring an end to malpractices like ‘triple talaq’ in this country.

Commenting on the issue of giving special recognition to Assam’s indigenous Muslims, CM Sarma said that the state’s indigenous Muslims do not want to mix with the immigrant Muslims as they have a different culture and lifestyle in spite of sharing the same religion.

He said that Assam’s indigenous Muslims want the government to recognize their unique identity. The Assam CM said that while a sub-committee has already submitted its report on this matter, the government is yet to take a call on it.

Commenting on illegal infiltration, the Chief Minister said that the matter of illegal infiltration is no longer just a matter for Assam, but for the whole country as well.

The Assam CM said that recent violence in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri is directly linked to the issue of illegal infiltration and also went on to say illegal infiltrators have been entering India through Assam and West Bengal for decades and have now spread to different parts of the country posing a major problem today.
