The adoption of a universal civil code, according to Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) Vice-Chancellor Santishree Dhulipudi Pandit, would be the “highest tribute” to gender equity. She stated that the goal of the Dr B. R. Ambedkar lecture series is to make people progressive and open-minded via uniformity of laws.

Ambedkar wants a uniform civil code to be implemented, according to the JNU VC. “Goa has a consistent civil code that the Portuguese enforced; because there are also Hindus, Christians, and Buddhists there, and since everyone has accepted it, why isn’t it being done?” “Achieving uniformity of laws, as required by the Constitution, meant cultivating progressive and tolerant individuals who would accept the laws made for society, “She remarked. Dr B. R. Ambedkar’s Thoughts on Gender Justice: Decoding the Uniform Civil Code was the topic of Pandit’s speech. She stated “Political democracy is a fantasy without social democracy.

It is important to note that a minority cannot enjoy all the rights while the majority do not; otherwise, there may be uncontrollable backlash. The implementation of Babasaheb’s proposed uniform civil code would be the greatest monument to gender equity, she continued. When discussing the necessity of reserving seats for women, she claimed that while the majority would be in favour of it, just six of the 54 universities now have female vice-chancellors, with only one coming from the reserved category. “Babasaheb’s significance has just recently been recognised, and it is crucial that such speakers be included in even our school curriculum. Because of gender-based violence, Babasaheb has become much more pertinent now.
