There is a perception that there is a judicial activism... I must clarify protection of fundamental rights of each and every citizen is the sacrosanct duty of the judiciary which has been conferred on by the Constitution.

Uniform Civil Code, as we have understood, means that there should be no gender discrimination or injustice, and we may not necessarily seek standardisation.

We ourselves don’t know what UCC is and what is required. At this stage, we cannot anticipate what should be its template or model, what will be acceptable to people and to what extent the government is willing to go ahead with it.
