In an open letter to the BN Srikrishna committee, Mozilla Corporation has urged them to prepare stronger laws for data protection.

BN Srikrishna committee is responsible for drafting data protection laws. It had also released a whitepaper regarding the data protection law.

In a report by The Economic Times, Mitchell Baker, executive chairwoman, Mozilla Corporation wrote to the committee responsible for bringing data protection laws. She reportedly said in the letter that despite no proper data protection laws, it is making a push to make Aadhaar card mandatory for various government and private services.

She further added said that this step comes in contradiction to the Supreme Court's position regarding Aadhaar and its use.

She also emphasised on the sensitivity of biometric information, which is stored while applying for Aadhaar card and how it is vulnerable to being misused.

In fact, Baker also pointed out that Aadhaar in its current form, takes the personal information of people for granted and people do not have much of a say over it.

The letter has been signed by the Mozilla India Community members.

I hope people actually read this stuff, only when someone from outside our country criticizes this flawed 'one for all identification program', then our people would be enlightened about this grave privacy issue which endangers us all. But, of course, very few news agencies actually report the fallacies in this program, which is to be expected as the party in power is the one to have implemented it in the first place :)

No, now people assume that they are 'foreign funded' with the aim to convert people/ takeover India/ get Congress back in power.
