The meaning of Uniform civil code is that the same code should be applied throughout the country without discriminating on the basis of religion or it can be said that the all the religions should be governed by the same code rather than different Personal Laws. Uniform Civil Code is talked about in the Article 44 of the Constitution of India and it is not justifiable it is as “the state shall endeavour to secure for the citizens a Uniform Civil Code throughout the territory of India”. Uniform Civil Code should be about gender justice and equality without giving preference to any religion and making different provisions for different religions. It should be just and fair and also should not hurt the sentiments of any religions. The Portuguese Civil Code do not meet the requirements of the Uniform Civil Code as it has different provisions for Christians as compared other religion and different provision for Hindus as compared to other religions. It also has provisions for women against the spirit of the Constitution of India and it should not be considered as the Uniform Civil Code as it is in contradiction to the Constitution of India and in that civil code the men are given rights which work against the women.
