No one wants to be put on surveillance, says Khurshid
Union minister Salman Khurshid on Wednesday questioned the claim made by the father of a Gujarat woman that he had asked the state government to conduct surveillance on his daughter, and said intruding into someone’s private life should be done only in the ‘paramount national interest’. Reacting to reports that the girl’s father had written to National Commission for Women asking it not to take cognisance of the matter, Khurshid said a family has no right to take a decision on an individual member’s behalf. ‘As far as snooping, stalking or following somebody is concerned...I am sorry. Father, mother, a brother or sister has no right. An individual is an individual first and then a family’s member,’ Khurshid said.
