    We are after all Indians and hence there should be no problem in having a one-nation-one-identity, the Supreme Court said while hearing the Aadhaar matter.

    Aadhaar- We are Indians after all SC says on one nation, one identity

    The observation came after senior advocate, Kapil Sibal said that the principle of one-nation-one identity floated through the Aadhaar scheme may make it difficult for a citizen to prove his identity without it.

    What is wrong with one identity for one nation,the Bench asked. We are all Indians. Sibal however said that the citizens cannot be reduced to just one identity. He said that the absence of Aadhaar may lead a citizen to a civil death or being branded anti-national, he also said.

    The bench, however, pointed to the provisions of the Aadhaar Act to maintain that the 12-digit unique identification number can be used for other purposes.

    Sibal sought interpretation of Section 57 of the Aadhaar Act in accordance with the concept of liberty and choice under Article 19 of the Constitution.
