Indian Govt warns Twitter against Misrepresentation of India’s Map.

Ajay Sawhney has warned the platform that such attempts not only bring disrepute to the company, but also raises questions about its neutrality and fairness as an intermediary.

The government has shot off a stern letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, conveying its strong disapproval over misrepresentation of the Indian map. In a strongly-worded letter, Electronics & IT Ministry Secretary, Ajay Sawhney has warned the platform that such attempts not only bring disrepute to the company, but also raises questions about its neutrality and fairness as an intermediary.

 

 

Responding to the letter, Twitter spokesperson said Twitter remains committed to work with the government of India. We respect the sensitivities involved and have duly acknowledged the letter, the spokesperson said.

 

 

A major controversy erupted after Twitter India showed Jammu and Kashmir as a part of Peoples Republic of China, in the timelines. A location tag of a live video posted on October 18 by national security analyst Nitin Gokhale showed the Leh’s Hall of Fame memorial in Jammu and Kashmir, and as a part of China.
