“When history of #RightToPrivacy as a fundamental right will be written, Prime Minister Modi’s name will figure right on top (As the head of the govt. that OPPOSED it and lost 9-0 in Supreme Court).”
On Aug 24, the Supreme Court passed a judgement that privacy is a fundamental right for every Indian.
The case was put forth after petitions were filed to challenge the government ordering the mandatory use of Aadhaar cards. The Supreme Court released a statement saying: “Right to Privacy is an integral part of Right to Life and Personal Liberty guaranteed in Article 21 of the Constitution.”
