Uniform civil code

In Part IV of our Constitution dealing with ‘Directive Principles of State Policy’, an article provides that the State shall endeavour to secure for the citizens a uniform code throughout the State. The present government is in favour of implementing a uniform civil code. Custom overweighs the Law. So far, only a few parts of religious laws have been codified. So, government should tread carefully in the matter so that no misunderstanding erupts among different sections of people in India.

No more leeway to Pakistan

From Gurdaspur to Pathankot and from Pampore to Uri, we have suffered a series of attacks by Pakistan endorsed, Pakistan drilled and Pakistan armed terrorist outfits. Recently, 18 of our brave jawans have been killed and several others severely injured in one of the most dastardly attacks at the Indian Army headquarter at the town of Uri, near the line of control, by a Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad. Our soldiers have been under such severe assaults by these terrorists incited by Pakistan, time and again. Every time, when our soldiers are martyred, we talk of strict and stern action. But, as of now, these have all been talks. Had we retaliated strongly enough after the Gurdaspur assault, a Pathankot would not have happened or after the Pampore attack, we might not have had to pay for this heavy loss at Uri. But, we haven’t. Now, the question arises - for how long? Actually, how long will we bear with these onslaughts? We can’t keep losing our bravehearts anymore. We have done enough of introspection; it’s time for retaliation. It is high time India paid Pakistan back. Some liberals may buck it and for some it may be a sheer exaggeration, but the very fact is that an action against Pakistan for what they have been pursuing again and again is a must. There is no time to hash out and to procrastite anymore. We have to deal with Pakistan severely and in the sturdiest possible ways which make them realize once and for all that the policy of trying to make India bleed will cost them a thousand times more. I would like to take this platform to pay my deepest homage to those bravehearts who do not think twice before laying down their lives for their motherland India.
