The demand for a Uniform Civil Code goes as back in time as the demand for fundamental rights in colonial India. However, upon independence, the framers of the Indian constitution recognised religious freedoms in Part III whereas the Uniform Civil Code was placed in Part IV, thereby giving precedence to one over the other. In recent years, the demand for a common civil code rippled. In this light, the article analyses the impact such a code could have on minority religious groups.
