Thanks for the post and bringing into limelight the fight for protection of civil liberties in India. There are some real heroes [http://www.groundreport.com/Business/Individuals-Who-Saved-Aadhar-Project-Of-India_1/2922861] who saved aadhar project of India. The fact is that civil liberties in India, especially in cyberspace, does not exist and government of India is well committed to violate the human rights of Indian through projects like Natgrid, Aadhar, etc.
