New Delhi: Reacting to the tabling of the Uniform Civil Code bill in Uttarakhand, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi yesterday said the proposed law is nothing but a "Hindu Code' applicable to all the communities. He claimed exemptions are being given to the Hindus and tribals in the bill. He also claimed that the code forces the Muslims to follow a different religion and culture, which is a violation of the fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution.

"The Uttarakhand UCC Bill is nothing but a Hindu Code applicable for all. Firstly, Hindu undivided family has not been touched. Why? If you want a uniform law for succession and

inheritance, why are Hindus kept out of it? Can a law be uniform if it doesn’t apply to the majority of your state?" he wrote on X.

He said there has been chatter about bigamy, halala, live-in relationships rules in the UCC but no one is talking about the fact that the Hindu Undivided Family has been excluded.

Owaisi said it can't be called uniform if the tribals are excluded from the code.

"There are other constitutional and legal issues. Why have tribals been excluded? Can it be uniform if one community is exempt," he said.
