The Aadhaar card is particularly dangerous for India, because it creates several security risks that cannot easily be reversed. Each day the Aadhaar card project continues, there remain open ways of fraudulently enrolling citizens for false identities to false citizenship by creating a passport on the basis of Aadhaar as proof. It is unclear why such serious and obvious threats to national security continue to be overlooked in the reckless promotion of Aadhaar.
The flaw is simple. Aadhaar only authenticates identity, but the government is promoting its use as a proof of address as well – which it is not.
