The Aadhaar Twitter handle (@UIDAI) wished its followers a Happy Vijayadashami with an illustration of arrows piercing through Ravana, the demon-king of Lanka from the ancient Hindu epic Ramayana.
One of the users was quick to troll the Aadhaar handle by asking for its take on issuing an Aadhaar card to Ravana.
Aadhaar is the 12-digit biometric identification project was mooted roughly a decade ago to plug leakages in the delivery of India’s state benefits.
The Aadhar social media team’s epic repartee, however, had Twitter in splits. It said Ravana was not a resident of India and hence, not eligible.
Not a resident of India. Not eligible to enroll for Aadhaar.— Aadhaar (@UIDAI) September 30, 2017
The tweet, at the time of writing, had over 2,400 retweets and close to 2,500 likes.
While some praised the handle’s sense of humour, others questioned it over the situation of the refugee community in the country. Here’s how Twitterati responded:
