  • India is a land of diversities with several religions. The oldest part of Indian Legal System is the personal laws governing the Hindus and the Muslims. The Hindu personal law has undergone changes by a continuous process of codification. The process of change in society has brought changes in law reflecting the changed social conditions and attempts the solution of social problems by new methods in the light of experience of legislations in other countries of the world. The Muslim personal law has been comparatively left untouched by legislations.
