Privacy is a Fundamental Right was clear from the very beginning of Aadhaar petition but Indian government tried its level best to keep it a statutory right. After dragging the case for two years, Supreme Court finally said what was obvious i.e. privacy is a Fundamental Right.
Although Supreme Court unreasonably gave two years to Indian government to push unconstitutional Aadhaar yet privacy decision has also created a big barrier before the government now.
This is because the government is now required to justify blatant violation of almost entire Part III of Indian Constitution, including privacy right. Both Aadhaar and Aadhaar Act would fail to pass the tests of privacy right opines Praveen Dalal. As a result Supreme Court would have no option but to Scrap Aadhaar.
No Apex Court of the world can declare a project like Aadhaar constitutional unless it has already been compromised and rule of law has ceased to exist. This applies to Indian Supreme Court as well.
