1/ Thread: The truth behind the government's claim that #Aadhaar will check child marriages, #dowry blackmail, bigamy & Violence against women.…
2/. A network of wedding scam artists, where women would make fake #Aadhaars ids (so they couldn't be identified), marry unsuspecting men, rob them and then flee.…
3/. In UP, a family got an #Aadhaar made stating their daughter is 18, when she's actually 11 years, and got her married. The girl reported her family! Or we'd never catch this #childmarriage. Govt says #Aadhaar is the "Voice of Truth." An absolute must!…
4/. In Kerala, a woman said she had been raped by a man who blackmailed her into marriage, converted her to Islam & got her a new #Aadhaar id to traffick her to the mideast…
5/. As for #widows, who are already marginalized in India, #Aadhaar is a nightmare. Hundreds of widows, many elderly have been deprived of their pension or food ration because their Biometrics don't register or has been intercepted by someone. Now there are reports of deaths!
6/ Consider 68% of India's adult illiterates are #women. Imagine what a nightmare the #Aadhaar sys is which needs digital expertise to manage your own life & navigate the bureaucracy & corruption around Aadhaar linked services…
7/. The govt uses poor, elderly widows as bait to advertise the system of cash withdrawal from bank a/cs linked to #Aadhaar which is very unsafe! Urban Indians refuse because we are educated & know. But who'll save the illiterate, poor village women from #cybercrimes?
