I just received this rather disturbing email from Airbnb. Note that the Aadhar card is an Govt of India identity card and is somewhat controversial. I personally have been avoiding getting one for some time. For some reason these people now want me to get one, though they don’t say why. And don’t miss the threat. And the “Sent with ” part. Why doesn’t Airbnb just call itself the Ministry of Love and get it over with?
We want you to be able to welcome travelers and host with confidence. To continue building a trusted global community, we’ve developed a more detailed

You have 10 weeks to complete Airbnb’s host verification process through IDfy. If you haven’t submitted the required verification information to IDfy by
May 15th, 2017, your Airbnb listing(s) will be deactivated.
