Government Is Doing Everything Except What It Should Be Doing

Come to think of it, every day you read so many issues, which hit directly your sensibilities as human being, your sense of right and wrong as law-abiding citizen of this country, your freedoms and rights as something guaranteed by our constituencies. Every day you are so concerned about your freedom, liberty and secularism trampled by so many constitutional and extra-constitutional bodies that you hardly have time to evaluate what the government and its various departments are doing. A clever ploy. No one will have time to think of anything else because they will be fighting hard with the system just to protect their rights and freedoms and obviously this constant fighting with the system will bring in ennui and a resignation leaving everything to God and kneeling over the great steam roller called State.

 

The new ‘shagoofa’ of Draft Encryption Policy is another such topic. The Government is bringing in a bill which will make public, the most intimate of messages and communication you might have sent to your relatives, friends or even with your lawyer, doctor, financial consultant or for that matter anyone. The people behind this proposal – the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (Deity) need to be asked about the brief given to them by the Government. Was it to find ways and means to curb people’s freedom? You expect 90% of India’s population to save texts and messages for the government for three months so that they may see it anytime they want. Doesn’t it sound like all married couple to keep their used condoms for a period of six months and to produce them when asked by authorities. The purpose of this can be ludicrous – they might want to check that sufficient number of times the intercourse is taking place for a healthy married life or not, or just put behind bars all those who have not saved the condoms for six months because they are criminals breaking law.

 

We brought Modi to power thinking that he will bring something new to the table. He has definitely brought very new things. Let’s get fried in them. 

 

If the present government knows the kind of outrage this draft policy will raise in this country it would hang few from The Deity. And in all probabilities it would be hastily taken back.

 

The fact that planners and bureaucrats and scientist formulating these policies can even think of such atrocious plan of killing individual liberty is sad reflection of what kind of instructions have been passed from top to bottom and how they can be interpreted in such anti-democratic and anti-constitution way.
