Yesterday the Supreme Court pronounced a historic judgement on the constitutionality of the Aadhaar, biometric programme. We urge people to read this statement by our friends at Rethink Aadhaar that contains a considered public response to it. Rethink Aadhaar's statement clearly sets out that there is a need for sustained engagement on the issue of digital identity and its impact on welfare programs and personal liberty. As an organisation we hope to support others like Rethink Aadhaar on the frontlines and grow our work as per our statement on Nov. 27, 2017.
