Geneva, January 31 (KMS): In utter embarrassment for India as well as its unfounded claim on Jammu and Kashmir, the World Health Organization (WHO) has shown Jammu and Kashmir as part of Pakistan and Arunachal Pradesh as part of China on the world map posted on its website.
Earlier, social networking site Twitter has also shown Jammu and Kashmir as a separate entity from India.
Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Dr Santanu Sen has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the World Health Organization (WHO) that the World Health Organization’s map shows Jammu and Kashmir as part of Pakistan and Arunachal Pradesh as part of China.
“When I clicked the site WHO Covid19.int, a world map was displayed, and when I zoomed into the portion of India, it showed a blue map with surprisingly two different colours for Jammu and Kashmir,” the MP wrote in his letter to PM Modi.
Sen said when he clicked over the blue portion, the map was showing him India’s data, but the other portion was showing Pakistan’s Covid-19 data.
The Trinamool Congress legislator also claimed that a portion of the state of Arunachal Pradesh was demarcated separately.
Calling it a serious international issue, the TMC MP said that the Indian government should have checked it and taken up the issue much earlier.
In 2021, Twitter represented India’s map, depicting Jammu and Kashmir as a separate country and large portions of Ladakh as China.
Just ten months ago, in October 2020, Twitter geo-tagged Leh as part of the People’s Republic of China.
