Hi everyone! Sending positive energy to you and all your loved ones in these trying times.
With great personal difficulty, I have managed not to ever enroll in Aadhaar. With reports of trials of Aadhaar-based FRT authentication (covert national health ID seeding program), there is a very real possibility that furnishing Aadhaar could become voluntarily mandatory in the near future, regardless of public advocacy by IFF and fellow citizens. If that were to become reality (won’t be surprised given historic precedent), what recourse exists for those of us who don’t have Aadhaar (either by choice or circumstance)?
Will we be denied vaccines until we enroll? Who do we reach out to for help and legal course correction? Is IFF an appropriate point of contact?
I don’t want to sound alarmist, but I am worried for my life and for those in a similar position. What’s already true is that getting mid to severe covid symptoms for someone like me is almost a guaranteed death sentence as hospitals ask for Aadhaar card to provide oxygen! I want to stop panicking :’(
