Thereupon Chief Justice SA Bobde replied: “We will publish a notice regarding this.”
A chief judge-led bank made up of Judges AS Bopanna and V. Ramasubramanian told WhatsApp’s attorney, “People have serious privacy concerns. They may be a $ 2 or 3 trillion company , but people value their privacy more than your money … we have to protect people’s privacy. ”
Attorney General Tushar Mehta, who represented the center, said the right to privacy is a fundamental right and they cannot compromise people’s privacy.
The chief judge told the WhatsApp attorney that people think if a message is sent from one person to another and then to a third person, the whole thing is communicated to Facebook. When the attorney alleged it was not, Chief Justice Bobde disagreed, saying that they are telling information heard and read through news reports and if WhatsApp disagrees it should be resolved under oath.
