Public Administration Mains 2017 : Model Question and Answer

(Public Administration Paper II / Chapter: Philosophical and Constitutional framework of government)

(Current Based) Question : Do you think Verdict on Triple Talaq would speed up Uniform Civil Code report ? Argue. (20 Marks/200 Words)

Model Answer :

The law panel is examining the verdict of Supreme Court on issue of triple talaq and it was believed that the order would be set to become one of the main reference texts for the Law Commission which is in the process of compiling public opinion on the contentious Uniform Civil Code (UCC).

The Supreme Court identified that the triple talaq system prevalent in the country was against the teachings of the scripture, was ‘unislamic’ and hence was not part of the personal law. This statement shows that the personal law was constitutional and would hence be kept up. Triple talaq was deemed unconstitutional as it was one-sided and shut doors on arbitration before dissolving a marital relationship.

The focus is on family laws of all religions and the diversity of customary practices, and to address social injustice and gender inequality rather than the plurality of laws. Personal laws will not be touched beyond the extent permitted by the constitution as per the Law panel. Under UCC, all personal laws based on scriptures and customs of every religion will be replaced with a common law governing every citizen. (Total Words- 188)
