Description
Hindu Law has the oldest pedigree of any known system of jurisprudence. The legal and historical scholars have yet to work hard and long in this vast field of research to explore and appreciate wholly the wisdom, excellence and maturity of the Hindu judicial system. On the other hand, our Constitution is yet to reach seven decades only. In this earlier edition the book was in five chapters. Those chapters are untouched except the inclusion of the amendments of the statutes and judgments thereunder. Several new chapters are added in this edition that throw light on every corner of the subject. Secularism is now the burning issue of the day and it has got an appropriate treatment in this edition. Uniform Civil Code is now a topic of nationwide debate and accordingly. a chapter on Uniform Civil Code and its impact on diverse personal laws are analysed. A separate chapter on 'Demolition of Babri Masjid' is included and it gives a new flavour. Temple entry and untouchables are new inclusion in this work. The instant edition provides all the issues relating to the subject. No stone is kept unturned in this aspect.
