Why aadhaar is a danger that looms and will destroy the whole country
Aadhaar is based on biometric verification coupled with manual verification as per UIDAI. So when you produce your aadhaar card for verification the verifier matches your face with that of the pic(manual verification) and you might at some places like JIO sim purchase will be asked to use your fingerprint(biometrics verification). Iris scanners are rarely available for verification. So person with a matching face and stolen fingerprints can pose as you and that will enable him to withdraw money from banks, avail subsidies, enter a place and commit crime(as you). KYC at most places just needs Aadhaar number and does not need you to match your biometrics again. That’s all it take to verify your identity, one can print the aadhaar with his own pic and your aadhaar number.
How can someone steal my biometrics?
Any tom, dick and harry is authorised for unmonitered aadhaar verification and it can happen at any small mobile recharge outlet(sim purchase) or via any private company. Paytm/Shaadi.com etc are now using Aadhaar verification. Hence, there is absolutely no control over your private data. Any one can use it to know about you and your address and details with just the number printed on the piece of paper UIDAI gave to you.
How grave is it?
Suppose a hacker steals your biometrics(you fingerprints and Iris data). You can change ATM card and PIN, not your biometrics. Once it’s stolen and sold in underworld it’s gone forever… Now it can be used to make fake aadhaar cards and used to commit crimes in your name. Aadhaar enables govts,private players,criminals & foreign hand to screw India & Indians by surveillance, exclusion, biometric id theft & war. To remind you all the data will be accumulate on a server, in case of a cyber war guess what will be the first choice of hackers?
As corporate India’s policies and and ethics go by if someone sneaks in their system and accesses the data from UIDAI, they won’t even inform the authorities for fear of bad publicity.(Refer to the latest bank passwords leaks from Yes bank/SBI)
Aadhaar now can be used as Password/PIN from any place!
Think…you use your thumb impression at a place and the malacious device stores your print on the device. You have also given your aadhaar number. That’s all needed to empty your bank account or forge a fake duplicate ID.
They want to control everything…your birth record, school record, marriage record, your property record, your money, EVERY DAMN THING.So government and private players suddenly get an unimaginable degree of power over you and can crush you entirely if they want. That was never possible when you had specific id cards for specific well defined needs, like passport, driving license.
Aadhaar is a piece of paper, unlike a driving licence or new chip-based passport. So all they need to duplicate is paper and a printer.For Aadhaar you simply have NOTHING. If they delete your entry or corrupt it, all systems will stop identifying you. You won’t exist according to the gov. All areas of your life will be Aadhaar linked and suddenly you will LOSE ACCESS TO ANY DAMN NORMAL PART OF LIFE. Your salary won’t get credited, your savings can’t get withdrawn, you can’t buy anything in the ‘cashless’ world, NOTHING.
A guy who’s aadhaar invalidated now has nowhere to go
NIAI Bil of UPA and Aadhaar Act of Modi say..Only UIDAI can make complaints.You are banned to approach even judiciary! UIDAI has no obligation to help.
Aadhaar Act explicitly gave govt power to do whatever the hell it wants in name of ‘public emergency’ & national security.
BJP gov introduces the Aadhaar bill as money bill in in LokSabha where it has majority(Money bill is not discussed in Rajyasabha, where BJP doesn’t have a majority).
Why the gov needed to pass the bill like thieves? Coz everyone was against the bill.
Jairam Ramesh’s petition in SC regarding the same
Supreme court’s decision that says aadhaar is non-mandatory document
SC’s verdict(Sep 2016) that says aadhaar is NOT mandatory AFTER Aadhaar bill
Government defying SC’s ruling:
aadhaar mandatory for IRCTC tickets
aadhaar mandatory for LPG subsify
Worst now Gov forces to organ donor’s need to have aadhaar to get an organ
The truth of all the tall claims of security and non-duplicacy of aadhaar
Analysis basically plugs data from UIDAI’s own 2012 pilot testing for false positives and negatives into proper maths. It predicts scaled at 1.2 billion, 1 in 121 biometrics will accidentally match someone.
False negatives means you got an Aadhaar, and u are in Aadhaar database, but still system fails to recognize u. Just like false +ves depriving ppl of Aadhaar, false -ves exclusion has anecdotal evidence & news reports.
As per affidavit submitted by Union Of India and Others to SC, 8 crore Aadhaar applications have been rejected so far. Still Dogs, trees and chairs have got Aadhaar.

We have considered the biometric identification programme of
the UIDAI, and for varying levels of population estimated the
proportion of duplicands: persons whose biometric identifiers
match that of some other person. These proportions are too
high: and indicate that the programme would badly fail to
uniquely identify individuals. The estimation depends on the
results of one experiment conducted by the UIDAI itself, and
requires the elementary knowledge of the differential calculus,
BJP called aadhaar as fruad and promised to squash it if voted in power
Falsified claims of savings on DBT via aadhaar linking
Don’t be fooled…There is absolutely nil benefits of Aadhaar and the cons eclipse if any.
UK voted for the party that promised to repleal the biometric IDs. They knew its evil.

Goodluck securing things in this digital age when the latest and the best tech is open to hackers
P.S I have copied most of above from twitter account of https://twitter.com/Stupi...ur even though I knew the perils of Aadhaar, this guy helped me gain more insight.
