Hyderabad: Prof. Tahir Mahmood, former Chairman of National Commission for Minorities and Member of Law Commission of India told that Law Commission was established in 1955. During the past 61 years, it did not submit any report on Uniform Civil Code. Prof. Mahmood contradicted that the news that Justice A.R. Laxmanan had submitted a report to the Govt. Prof. Mahmood was member of Law Commission when Justice Laxmanan was its chairman. The commission had prepared two reports which were drafted by Prof. Mahmood and non of it was about Uniform Civil Code.
In situations where Govt. wants to avoid any controversial issues, it saves its obligation by refereeing the matter to any commission. Govt. of India has referred the issue pertaining to Uniform Civil Code keeping in mind the political motives.
He advised the Muslims of India not to worry about it.
