Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders are now asking the government to implement laws like The Population Control Bill and the Uniform Civil Code. In a petition, BJP leader and lawyer Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay has sought framing of a uniform civil code to promote national integration and gender justice, equality and dignity of women.
The Delhi high court on Friday sought response from the Centre on a public interest litigation (PIL). A division bench headed by Chief Justice Rajendra Menon issued a notice to the Centre and the Law Commission of India seeking their stand on the plea.
“The object of the Article 44 is to introduce a Uniform Civil Code, which is essential to promote fraternity unity and national integration. It proceeds on the assumption that there is no connection between religion and personal laws in a civilized society…The object of Article 44 is not to encroach upon religious liberties guaranteed under Article 25,” the plea said.
Reacting sharply to the violence in Bengaluru, he said that if the law is not implemented, there will be situations like Sharia laws in the country by 2050. Ashwini Upadhyay’s PIL seeks framing of 8 laws including The Uniform Civil Code and The Population Control Bill.
Home Minister Amit Shah also wrote a letter to party president JP Nadda demanding that these laws be implemented. If these laws are not enacted in 2020, the constitution will be in danger by 2050.
The Supreme Court decided to hear the issue of population control law, including a two-child norm, on 14 August, exactly a year after Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the issue of population explosion in his Independence Day speech from the Red Fort.
Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay claimed that even today around 25 crore Indians do not have Aadhaar Card. It has been reported that around 16 crore citizens are yet to enrol themselves for the Aadhaar card and around nine crore have been excluded for reasons unknown and unexplained.
According to reports, as many as 125 crore Indians have received their own 12-digit unique identity number since the service was rolled out in 2009. In this way, the country’s population has reached 1.5 billion.
India has only 2.4 % of the world’s land area but supports 20 percent of the world population. The total area of India is 32,87263 square km which is just one-third of that of China. population explosion is the root cause of all problems in India. In such a situation, it is very important to implement the Population Control bill across the country.
