NEW DELHI: The RSS will not take up the demand for “restoration” of the Kashi and Mathura shrines after the Ayodhya Ram temple and also feels that public opinion should be prepared for implementation of a uniform civil code before a law is brought forward.
The view in the RSS seems to be that it remains to be seen if there will be any public sentiment in favour of the Kashi Vishwanath and Krishna Janmabhoomi issues raised by some groups in the wake of the Supreme Court verdict on the Ram temple. But while not categorically ruling out support, RSS appears clearly disinclined to take up the issues.
On the uniform civil code, the third in the Hindutva list after Article 370 and Ayodhya, RSS sources said the need for a common civil law for all citizens was self-evident. However, there was a need to prepare public opinion so that it could be understood in the correct perspective without creating a rift in society.
The logic for a UCC is strong and it is not that only the minorities would be affected as several aspects of traditional norms and customs associated with other communities, including Hindus, would be impacted by a common law. The theoretical justification for the UCC was clearly understood but its implementation must not aggravate faultlines, achieving the opposite of what it was intended to deliver, the RSS believes.
