Over the last few weeks, the Aadhaar card has been at the centre of a debate in the country. Many voiced concerns after the government announced that the biometric identification system would soon be compulsory for a bank account, filing tax returns, applying for a new phone number and even for welfare schemes including mid-day meals. Today, the Supreme Court said the 12-digit Aadhaar number cannot be mandatory for people to draw benefits on government welfare schemes.
As the system was debated online, many used the hashtag #AadhaarMemes to express their views.
Questions were raised about infringement of privacy and safety concern.
Soon, #AadhaarMemes were trending on social media
