The Commission focuses on addressing discriminatory laws rather than proposing a uniform civil code.

Proponents believe that a Uniform Civil Code will promote gender equality, social justice, and national integration.
The debate highlights concerns about the potential erosion of unique cultural and religious identities.
Some argue that a uniform code may infringe upon constitutional rights to practice religion and preserve cultural practices.
