“Under this code, Muslim men can neither practice polygamy nor the verbal divorce is recognized in this State because no such provision exists in the Code and secondly the Muslim Personal Law Application Act 1937 has not extended to the State of Goa,” she said, as per the statement.

“The Governor in her report has laid emphasis on the need to create a single identity for women as Indian Women i.e. one nation and one identity for women, and she has found that practice of Goa Civil Code has led to strengthening of this identity. The Goa Civil Code in true spirit integrates the society and creates social solidarity,” the statement said.
