Thanks a lot to everyone for all the support, encouragement and love we have received over the order allowing us to file IT-Returns without #Aadhar. I'm really glad we got lucky with a progressive bench that agreed to give relief to everyone instead of making it just about us.
This case has received more than it's share of attention in both print and social media. While I am definitely grateful, I would like to re-iterate that it is a part of a much larger struggle started and sustained by many activists and movements and needs to be seen as such.
The fight against #Aadhar cannot be selectively highlighted when privileged communities are affected (similar attention was received when the #privacy judgment was received and when deadlines for linking PAN, bank account and phone numbers were indefinitely extended)
