New Delhi, Oct 4, 2016: Veteran social activist Anna Hazare on Tuesday disagreed with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give a “befitting reply” to Pakistan over the surgical strikes, saying it is not good to ask for proof of such actions and the army should not be mistrusted.

“I don’t know whether Kejriwal has said it or not. But we should not mistrust the army. I will condemn those who speak against army or doubt the army,” said Anna, who was in the capital to promote his upcoming biopic “Anna”.

“Before doing surgical strike, our military generals and other people must have done some planning. So why will they lie on it? We should trust them. This matter is of army, the country and its citizen. In such talks, it’s not good to justify someone on it.

“They must have planned it. So how can we doubt them,” he added.

Speaking in Jodhpur on Tuesday, Kejriwal urged Modi to give a “befitting reply” to Islamabad’s insistence that no such operation took place and New Delhi was lying about the September 28-29 surgical strikes.

Kejriwal’s comments followed a spate of aggressive criticism by the Bharatiya Janata Party, which accused the Delhi Chief Minister of raising doubts about the surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC).

Talking about the film, which has been directed by Shashank Udapurkar and features him in the lead role, Anna said: “I never drempt that a film will be made on a poor man like me. It will give out a message that those who will do work like this poor man, people will also make films on their lives.

“The film tells the story of my whole journey from a small child till the time I fought against corruption. They can’t show my whole journey in two hours, but the film will give a summary of my life.”

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
