The Twitter displays an Indian map showing Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh as a separate country. This has infuriated India who declared it as a ‘wrong map’. This all happened in the middle of a standoff with the Indian government over compliance with new IT rules.

The glaring distortion appears on the career section of Twitter website under the header ‘Tweep Life.’

This is the second time Twitter has clearly represented India’s map. Indian government called it a misrepresentation, claiming Jammu and Kashmir as their own territory. Earlier it had shown Leh as part of China.

 

The US digital giant has been engaged in a tussle with the Indian government over the new social media rules.

 

The Indian government has slammed Twitter for deliberate defiance and failure to comply with the country’s new IT rules. India believes that this slamming  has led to the micro blogging platform losing its legal shield as an intermediary in India, and becoming liable for users posting any unlawful content.

Jammu and Kashmir status

Taking into consideration, Jammu and Kashmir has been the subject of a dispute between India, Pakistan and China since the mid-20th century. After the Government of India repealed the special status accorded to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Indian constitution in 2019, the Parliament of India passed the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, which contained provisions that dissolved the state and reorganised it into two union territories – Jammu and Kashmir in the west and Ladakh in the east, with effect from 31 October 2019. At the time of its dissolution, Jammu and Kashmir was the only state in India with a Muslim majority population.

In a 1993 report, Human Rights Watch stated that Indian security forces“assaulted civilians during search operations, tortured and summarily executed detainees in custody and murdered civilians in reprisal attacks”. The area that they are claiming is not their own.
