Adamant Iyer stands by Women’s Code Bill

kerala women's codeKochi: Former Supreme Court judge V.R. Krishna Iyer Wednesday said that the 'controversial' recommendations in the Kerala Women's Code Bill 2011 will not be withdrawn.

He said that his commission is not the sort that will run for cover when attacked.

A commission headed by Iyer had recommended a two-child norm for the state.

Adoption of family planning and birth control as secular policy is necessary to check unhealthy, uneconomic and abnormal increase in population and
for sustaining harmony and happiness among all communities, the commission, appointed by the government, he said.

The commission has also suggested that if there is a consistent violation by people on the two child norm, then government can make it a penal act and impose a fine of Rs 10,000 or upto three months imprisonment.

Several religious heads have come out against the implementations of the controversial recommendations.

Meanwhile, one of the members of the committee, Serena Nawaz, Wednesday said that the controversial recommendation can be withdrawn
