That said, if you question is really targeted at estate tax - taxing the value of the money and property an inheritor receives from the deceased, I am against all estate taxes... And I am a liberal! If I ran for president, I would definitely get the support of the rich since I would advocate for a Constitutional amendment for prohibiting estate taxes.
I think Lebanon also have similar laws and they also have a civil court. If you live in a country that is so diverse I think it is a good idea to let people chose the court they want to follow. But I am so curious what are the downside of this system in your opinion 🤔
The subtext of all personal laws, regardless of religion, is that women are not equal to men. They, therefore, discriminate against women in marriage, inheritance and guardianship of children. Thirty-two years ago when Shahnaaz Shaikh filed a public interest litigation (PIL) challenging the triple talaq given to her by her husband at midnight, it acquired the hue of identity politics. The petition stated that Sharia law subjugated Muslim women by imposing purdah, allowing polygamy and unilateral divorce and depriving divorced Muslim women of maintenance rights.
For example, Hindu daughters were deprived of joint heirship in parental property as per the codes of Mitakshara, a school of Hindu law governing succession. It was only after Lata Mittal (case filed in 1985) won a 20-year legal battle in the Supreme Court that Hindu daughters were given equal rights in the ancestral property. Similarly, Christian women could not obtain divorce on the grounds of adultery committed by the husband; it had to be coupled with cruelty, bestiality and sodomy. On the other hand, Christian husbands could simply declare their wives as adulteresses and divorce them
So if there is a uniform civil code which is impartial totally and the intellectual section accepts it to be beneficial to the society , it would give a better future. All personal law works by a mechanism which are thousands of years old ! Working by such mechanism even till this date is vague.
