Twitter shows Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh outside India on its site


New Delhi: Twitter has once again courted controversy with the micro-blogging platform displaying a distorted map of India, showing Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh as a separate country.

The map, which appears on the career section of the micro-blogging platform, shows Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh detached from the country.

This is, however, not the first time that Twitter has shown a distorted map of India. The Centre had last year written to Twitter CEO, conveying its strong disapproval over the misrepresentation of the map of India after Twitter showed the geo-location of Leh in Jammu and Kashmir, People’s Republic of China.

In a warning, the government said any attempt by Twitter to disrespect India’s “sovereignty and integrity is totally unacceptable”.
