"Let the citizens adopt it willingly as an ideal which has also been described in Article 44 of the Constitution. It cannot be imposed till all the stakeholders are taken into confidence. It can be adopted if it is accepted by all sections of society."

Oza said: "It is not proper if this does not happen. The holds the same thought as Ambedkar."

The All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and a number of other prominent Muslim organisations on Thursday rejected the Law Commission's questionnaire on the Uniform Civil Code, calling it "misleading".
