I am afraid to say that author's fears might be misplaced here. Unless we have a copy of the agreement between MongoDB and UIDAI we can't say for sure. MongoDB is an open source product with commercial support (somewhat similar to what MySQL provides in the Relational Database space). Maybe the contract is just about support but not about analysing the data? Or it could be that the UIDAI has requirement related to BigData which warrant the use of MongoDB.
Merely the funding of CIA doesn't mean that the software will be used for evil purposes. US Navy funds for anonymous browser Tor. Tor is used by privacy activists across the globe. Even Edward Snowden relied on Tor. Bruce Schenier who has been quoted on this Magazine also uses and propogates the use of Tor. Although there have been unconfirmed reports of a backdoor in Tor, the people behind Tor project have denied it.
Rabidly leftist--- I dont understand why the rich are deemed foxy and thieves with illgotten wealth. Ambani has refined petroleum for india since last two decades and recently producing gas. They ventured into telecom and increased penetration and served people. I dont understand why CIA is looked at as an enemy organization and not as a partner. The cold war mentality must be still alive.
