An American computer professional and former Central Intelligence Agency employee Edward Joseph Snowden comes forward in support of journalist Rachna Khaira and tweeted “The journalists exposing the #Aadhaar breach deserve an award, not an investigation. If the government were truly concerned for justice, they would be reforming the policies that destroyed the privacy of a billion Indians. Want to arrest those responsible? They are called @UIDAI.

He added “It is the natural tendency of government to desire perfect records of private lives. History shows that no matter the laws, the result is abuse.”

However, Editor of The Tribune said that they will stand by their story and would explore all legal options.
