National Seminar on “Reforms in Personal Laws in India: Problems & Prospects” -ICFAI Law School-8th April, 2017

National Seminar on “Reforms in Personal Laws in India: Problems & Prospects”

Concept Note:
A 35 years old Muslim woman Shayara Bano, recently moved the Supreme Court of India seeking a ban on instantaneous triple talaq (Talaq-e-Biddat), Polygamy, Halala. Her petition in the Supreme Court makes no mention of the Uniform Civil Code, neither does it ask for codification of Muslim Personal Law. She has sought equality before law and protection against discrimination on the basis of her gender and religion. She challenged a personal law practice citing her fundamental rights. As the Supreme Court of India is adjudicating the matter by constituting Constitutional Bench, no decision has been taken yet.

The Secretary of All India Muslim Personal Board (AIMPB) as respondent number 7 in the writ petition filed its counter affidavit contending that the present edition does not fall within the Judicial Review. It further submitted that personal laws do not derive their validity on the ground that they have been passed or made by a legislature or other competent authority in the territory of India. The founding sources of both the Hindu and Mohammeden laws are their respective scriptural texts. The basic principles which are the basis of Hindu / Muslim / Christian personal laws are peculiar to their own religion, which cannot be challenged on the ground of being violative of Part-III of the Constitution of India.

Sub-themes:

  • Need for Reforms in Personal Laws in India: An Analysis.
  • Scope of Reforms in Personal Laws is a matter of Legislative Policy.
  • Authoritative sources behind Personal Laws in India and Role of Religion to control the Personal Laws.
  • Challenging of Personal Laws under Part- III of the Constitution of India.
  • Accountability of Secular State for violations caused by the operation of Personal Laws.
  • Scope of re-writing the Personal Laws of a community for social reforms.
  • Scope of Judicial Interpretation over the matter of Personal Laws based on religious scriptures in India.
  • Whether for reforms, it is permissible to change the practices or acts done in pursuance of religion?
  • Scope of Reforms in Personal Laws vis-a-vis religious communities in India.
  • Scope of Introduction of Uniform Civil Code in India

Identified issues / Sub-themes are only illustrative. Participants may select the related topics covered under the main theme.

Call for Papers:

  • Research papers / Articles and Case Studies from legal fraternity are invited for presentation in the National Seminar. Communication of acceptance will be sent to authors for presentation.

National Seminar on Constitutional Governance and Protection of Minorities Faculty of Law, University of Lucknow

National Seminar on Constitutional Governance and Protection of Minorities

Faculty of Law, University of Lucknow is going to organize the National Seminar on Constitutional Governance and Protection of Minorities.

Date: 2nd April, 2017
Venue: University of Lucknow, Second Campus, Janakipuram.

About the Seminar:
The Faculty of Law, University of Lucknow is a premier institution in India. The faculty in the pursuit of academic excellence purposes to organize a National Seminar on “Constitutional Governance & Protection of Minorities” on 2nd April, 2017. India due to its geographical physiographic condition has been a refugee of almost all human races from every corner of world.

These migrants in due course of time established a plural society of India with several minorities. Minority is a Thai word which finds relative expression in Indian Constitution to religion, language, script or culture. Zorastrians, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jainis are some of the minorities. India which is a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic took due care of these minorities in its constitutional federal tandem and provided special protection to them in its Constitution. However, these minorities got marginalized from the mainstream of the society, and justice, social, economic and political remained a distant dream for them so far.

The reason is obvious as in democracy; the government is run on false assumption of majority which often may be not so right. Justice Rajinder Sachar Committee Report of 2005 is still an eye-opener regarding plight of Muslim minorities.

Problems of these minorities in a plural, federal, secular, constitutional government is unending some of them may be illustrated as participation in governance & public bodies, higher education, declining status of Urdu language, modernization of madarsas, misuse of wakf properties, harassment of Muslim youths in the name of extremism, diminishing number of jainis and Parsis, religious and organized communal violence against minorities, Uniform Civil Code, conversion, love-jihad, honour killings, exploitation of ethnic races and protection of tribes, deprivation of tribal community of their riparian rights, affirmative action for the minority, employment, religious intolerance etc.

Article 25 to 30, provisions in directive principles of state policy of Indian Constitution, establishment of National Minority Commission in 1993 and Indian Judiciary by its radical judgments have constantly protected the minorities from exploitation of majority which was done knowingly and unknowingly.

This seminar is an attempt to discuss and deliberate upon the contentious issues pertaining to minorities with a legal angle upon which people avoid to speak generally. We hope that outcome of this seminar shall be helpful in establishment of an egalitarian secular society where minorities can equally enjoy all fruits of a federal free state while maintaining their identities

Themes of the Seminar:

  • Constitutional Governance: Minorities, Social & Economic Justice
  • Constitutional Governance: Federalism, Pluralism & Minorities
  • Constitutional Governance: Minorities & Secularism
