AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and Lok Sabha MP on Friday took a dig at the Narendra Modi government, saying ” Jallikattu protest Lesson for Hindutva forces, Uniform Civil Code cannot be imposed this nation cannot have one culture we celebrate all.” His tweet came even as Tamil Nadu government today said it will issue an ordinance to ensure the conduct of Jallikattu sport in a day or two and has submitted a draft of it to the Union Home Ministry.

Owaisi, who is known for making controversial statements, earlier had observed that Uniform Civil Code is “not good” for the country.

Owaisi had said his party would respond to Law Commission’s questionnaire on the issue unlike All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB). “I respect the decision taken by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board. But, our political party has taken a decision three days ago that we as a political party would reply to that questionnaire,” he said.

The Hyderabad MP then said, “I have been consistently saying that uniform civil code is not good for the diversity and pluralism of this great nation of ours and diversity and pluralism are the ethos of this country. It is not going to help our country by having uniform civil code. “For example, can an agreement be arrived on what should be the inheritance according to the Mitakshara and Dayabhaga schools? Can we take away cultural rights which Constitution has given to Nagaland and Mizoram?” he had asked.

    Jallikattu ban was done by Congress and not BJP. It has nothing to do with UCC. As usual Mr. Owaisi disappoints...

          Jallikattu is celebrated by farmers where religion is irrelevant. I think Owaisi should understand what it is really about before blabbering on about it.

              What an . He blabbers whatever. Jallikattu has nothing to do with Uniform Civil Code.What is there right now is anti-Hindu Civil Code. That is why the Jallikattu protests. So if at all, the Jallikattu protests are an argument for Uniform Civil Code.What is this fanatic thinking, if there is a Uniform Civil Code, it will be in line with Sharaiah?! Maybe that's what he wants, but it exposes that he does not know what Uniform Civil Code means.

                I don't know why main stream media gives attention to these people who always try to incite hatred and violence. Using Jallikattu as protest he is trying to send a message to muslims to unite and fight against UCC. If UCC would have been sharia compliant he will readily accept it but as UCC is one rule for all Indians he is opposing it.Jallikattu is a sports which is pla by all sections of society how can he even compare to UCC.
