Aadhaar is a Digital Panopticon and is the worst Human Rights nightmare of the World. India cannot be trusted with issues like Civil Liberties, Privacy, Data Protection and Human Rights Protection in Cyberspace. That is why we at PTLB have created a “No Aadhaar Zone” that is an “Aadhaar Cancer Free Zone”.
Aadhaar is an Orwellian project of highest magnitude and is the worst Digital Panopticon of the Human History. Aadhaar is also a classic example how Rule of Law and Constitution can be compromised by a collusion of Executive, Judiciary and Parliament. There is no second opinion that Supremacy of Constitution is no more there in India.
Irrespective of these negative developments and “Digital Emergency” that are in existence in India, some brave warriors are still fighting against unconstitutional and Orwellian Aadhaar. But none can deny the fact and truth that Indian Supreme Court is passing through a time worst than the Jabalpur Era time. The Emergency imposed by Congress was limited for some years but the Digital Emergency imposed by the BJP is perpetual and soon Indians would face very dangerous consequences of Aadhaar.
So far the Aadhaar Crimes have been reported in the form of data breaches, cyber security breaches, deaths due to denial of food and healthcare, social exclusions, denial of employment and employment related discriminatory issues, etc. We at PTLB are already in a tussle with Indian Government as we are working to Scrap Aadhaar and we would not allow Indian Government and its Ministries/Departments to hide behind the facade and political rhetoric of Aadhaar.
All the policies and schemes of Indian Government are political rhetoric to fool Indians and to deny them of their legitimate Human Rights and Fundamental Rights. We have given critical evaluation of each and every such political rhetoric of BJP Government whether it relates to pension scheme for farmers and small traders, benefits for MSMEs and startups, employments lies, loans lies, etc.
What we have seen in our 10 years fight against unconstitutional and Orwellian Aadhaar is that Aadhaar would never empower Indians. By its very design Aadhaar is meant for either Death or Digital Slavery for perpetuity. So there is no case for keeping this menace in India as it would plague the future generations too. Parents are enrolling their children without realising the dangers of Aadhaar and many of them treat it as a privilege.
I am happy that other countries have escaped from this “Human Rights Cancer” and I strongly recommend that they should stay thousand miles away from this menace. As for Indians, they must fight back and demand scrapping of unconstitutional Aadhaar. The starting point can be non use of Aadhaar for PAN, tax returns, banks, mobile SIM connections, etc. Indian Government is using coercion and fear to oppress Indians with this Digital Slavery but it is worth to stay free and safe by boycotting Aadhaar.
