“It is not as easy as abrogation of Article 370,” said Ghulam Nabi Azad speaking to media persons in Srinagar.

“There is no question (of implementing it). It is not easy as it was to revoke Article 370. All religions are involved in it. Not only Muslims, but Christians and Sikhs also, tribals, Jains, Parsis, annoying all these people at once, will not be good for any government,” the chairman of the Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) said, reports PTI.

“So, I suggest this government not even think about taking this step,” he said.

UCC refers to a common set of laws that are applicable to all citizens of India that is not based on religion and dealing with marriage, divorce, inheritance and adoption among other matters.

Ghulam Nabi Azad, who formed the DPAP in September last year after ending his more than five-decade-long association with the Congress, also batted for early assembly elections in the Union Territory.
