Himachal Pradesh Floods

Himachal Pradesh is witnessing incessant rains triggering landslides and flash floods in the state. As per reports, the northern state has received nearly 249.6 mm of average rainfall between July 1 and July 11 as compared to the normal 76.6mm. The heavy rainfall caused all major rivers in Himachal Pradesh to overflow with the flooding on Beas  that passes through Kullu, Manali and Bilaspur district. 

As far as records are concerned, for the first time in history of the 146-year-old Victoria bridge in Mandi tower, the River Beas flowed over the bridge and almost submerged the historic Panchvaktra temple. Evidently, the bridge and the temple withstood the fury of Beas, however the newly constructed four-lane-Mandi-Manali highway gave in at many places. 

Videos of the aforesaid situation have gone viral across the social media platforms. Netizens opined that the centuries old Panchvaktra temple stands strong in extreme floods while the modern structures are just collapsing. Taking to Twitter, a social media user shared a video of Panchvaktra temple being submerged. Sharing the video, the social media user wrote that when many modern and mammoth structures are collapsing within a few minutes, this centuries-old Panchvaktra temple of Mandi is still confronting the flood. He added that in the past too, the temple faced heavy floods many times. 

Responding to the social media post, one Twitter user commented that the temple has witnessed earthquakes, floods, glaciers retreat and many more but it stood strong for a thousand years. Nonetheless, in these present times, houses collapse in a few hours of rain, he added. Panchvaktra temple is a supreme shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva and is built in Shikhara architecture style. It is situated at the confluence of River Suketi and Beas at Mandi, Himachal Pradesh. Reportedly, Mandi district is the worst hit and has witnessed major cloudburst since July 1.

AIUDF MLA Hafiz Rafiqul Islam on Saturday said Himanta Biswa Sarma- led Assam government doesn’t have the courage to bring the Uniform Civil Code in the state as it has been implemented in Uttarakhand. He reacted to the Assam government’s decision to repeal the Assam Muslim Marriages and Divorces Registration Act and added the move had been taken to target Muslims.

Islam said bill passed in Uttarakhand is not Uniform Civil Code. He said Uniform Civil Code cannot be implemented in Assam because there are people from many different castes and communities. He said BJP followers themselves follow these practices. Islam said the BJP government is employing these tactics as the Lok Sabha elections are approaching.

The Assam government gave its approval to repeal the British Raj-era law on Friday. Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma took to X and wrote this act contains provisions which allow marriage registration even if the bride and groom had not reached the legal ages of 18 and 21, as required by law. This move marks another significant step towards prohibiting child marriages in Assam.

This law gives authority to Muslim registrars to register voluntary declaration of marriages and divorces. After this law has been repealed, the district authorities will take over the custody of the registration records which have been held by 94 muslim marriage registrars.

The Assam government said it is not mandatory to register marriages and divorces as per the Act and the machinery of registration is informal, which leaves a lot of scope for non-compliance with extant norms. Earlier, the Uttarakhand government got the Uniform Civil Code Bill passed in the state assembly.

The bill seeks to replace personal religious laws governing marriage, divorces and inheritance, with a common set of rules applicable to all religious laws governing marriage, divorces and inheritance, with common set of rules applicable to all religions equally.
