The social media giant Twitter came under fire on Sunday for showing Leh of Jammu-Kashmir of India as a part of the People’s Republic of China. Nitin Gokhale, a National Security Analyst, while going live on Twitter near Leh Airport, noticed the location displayed Leh as a part of the People’s Republic of China.
The Observer Research Foundation Chairman, Kanchan Gupta stated that this was not just one incident, but many netizens who logged in online faced a similar issue. Though the issue was apprised on Twitter, there was no action taken by the social media platform. Every time an experiment was done, it showed the same result.
It is also noteworthy that such an event is happening after both the countries, India and China, are at their 7th level of military talks at the LAC over de-escalation and disengagement and about returning to the status quo at the border.
Twitter India has neither fixed the issue nor issued any statement in response to the same.
