I agree there is no need to quote any holy book just bring the secular uniform civil code..

The monet you start quoting from ti and justifying your secular lawa Ullemas come into currency and they can rightly calim they understand their scriptures betetr than judges..

So the best thing is we don;t care what any holy book says this is secular democracy and we abide by secular laws of our constitution

Poligamy or Monogamy is not a business of Law Commissions at all. It's not leagl matter, its a social issue.

Hinu religion is not a codified religion. But hindu mythology or social history is replete with instances of poligamy; it was rule rather than an exception specially amongst the upper cast. Hindu religion as was understood was not specifially against poligamy or ordained monogamy.

When poligamy was banned for the hindus, their religious sentiment was not hurt. Ideally nor it should hurt muslim sentiment, as it will be beneficial for the muslims at large. Agreed politically it's a hot potato now. Consensnsus for monogamy should arise from the muslim soceiety itself , before enactng unified marriage code.

- "A secular state should be making laws on the basis of what its legislators think is good for the people and not because some revered tome said so, or didn't."

I fully agree.
