Who is Antony Clement Rubin

Antony Clement Rubin is an animal welfare activist from Tamil Nadu's Tuticorin. With over 16 years of experience in rescue and rehabilitation of abused animals, Rubin was a co-opted member of Animal Welfare Board of India. He has had a three-year stint in Worldwide Veterinary Services and Mission Rabies.
Antony Rubin came into the limelight when he filed a petition in the Madras High Court in 2018, seeking the court's direction to the Central government to make it mandatory for social media users to link their Aadhaar number with email IDs and user accounts of different social media platforms. His contention: for easier detection of cybercrime cases.

An RTI activist, Rubin said he had a personal reason to take up this legal battle.
In January 2017, Rubin was appointed a member of a Jallikattu monitoring committee by the Animal Welfare Board of India to see if there were incidents of animal abuse.
He was then allegedly defamed and attacked on some social media pages for being a part of that committee. Following this, Rubin decided to file a petition with the Madras High Court.
According to Antony Rubin, social media platforms must share information with probe agencies about account users who use those platforms to intimidate, abuse or threaten people.
On August 20, 2019, the Supreme Court agreed to hear Facebook's transfer petition on September 13 on a PIL seeking Aadhar-social media linkage.
