The exposure by ‘The Tribune’ about the lack of security of Aadhaar and that the information in the Aaadhar can be breached and leaked has put the government on the defensive. But instead of taking necessary action to rectify and secure the Aadhaar, the Modi government has turned its anger on those who exposed the insecurity and filed FIR against the woman reporter and others as also against the newspaper.

Wide scale protest has come from all sections of society, including politicians and parliamentarians against this victimisation of the whistle-blowers. Government can not be allowed to gag those who speaks against its wrong actions. The action of the government is undemocratic and has to be protested.
