Kerala LDF Supports Right to Privacy of Indian citizens

Kerala LDF Supports Right to Privacy of Indian citizens

BJP government is against Right to Privacy as a fundamental right.
About Congress party and Rahul Gandhi what is their opinion regarding Right to privacy as a fundamental right I do not know.

But now LDF government of Kerala told Supreme Court of India that Privacy should be declared a fundamental right to protect citizens from intrusions by the State. In the modern world, technology has advanced so much that “what is whispered in the closet is heard in the street”,

LDF government government supported the case of petitioners that technology would progress so much that data collected through Aadhaar could be used for surveillance, if not now, in the future.

Kerala said privacy, like any other fundamental right, is not “absolute”. But it is a fundamental right nevertheless.

“The fact that like any other fundamental right, right to privacy is also not an absolute right is not an enough ground to deny the existence of Right to Privacy as fundamental right,” Kerala said in its written submissions before the court.

The government said privacy encompassed the “personal intimacies of the home, family, marriage, motherhood, procreation, child rearing, feelings, love and passion, etc. A person’s thought process, fantasies, etc., would also necessarily come under his Right to Privacy”.

“We are in the digital age. If the intimate details of his/her body, mind, thought process and fantasies are not treated as Right to Privacy— as part of Right to Life and Personal Liberty — under Article 21 of the Constitution, the state could map out these private domains of the person with invasive/un-invasive methods to be developed in this high-tech world of digital era, especially when there is no fool-proof data protection regime,”

This is one of the reason to vote for LDF government.
