Solution

The correct option is B Uniform Civil Code
The Uniform Civil Code (UCC) calls for the formulation of one law for India, which would be applicable to all religious communities in matters of marriage, divorce, inheritance, adoption, etc. It intends to replace the system of fragmented personal laws, which currently govern interpersonal relationships and related matters within different religious communities. However, critics of this idea argue that it interferes with the right to freedom of religion. The UCC could become a tool to erode this right, suppress minorities and homogenise culture. However, the diversity of personal laws should not contradict an individual's fundamental rights.
