I'm not an expert and I do not understand whether the Govt is right or
wrong in imposing this. However the news coverage over last few days says
that Blackberry co-operated with Govts of several other countries in
security related concerns, details of which they obviously didn't
disclose.

If it is taking Indian Govt for granted and give in to pressure from
others, that's definitely not acceptable. On the contrary, did this happen
because other Govts settled for something less than what GoI is asking for?
We don't know.

Mayuresh.
