Wrong Map Of India: Govt Of India Warned WhatsApp

The Government of India has warned WhatsApp on Saturday for tweeting the wrong map of India. 

Union IT Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar on Saturday issued a warning to the company asking it to rectify the mistake at the earliest. 

In the graphics tweeted by WhatsApp, while showing India on the globe, the map omitted Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and some Indian territories claimed by China. And always the correct map of India should be used. 

Responding to the same graphics, Rajeev Chandrasekhar said in a tweet that any platform that wants to run its business in India or wants to expand its business further in India, should avoid making such a mistake. 

In this tweet, Chandrasekhar also tagged ‘Meta’. WhatsApp’s parent company is Meta. 

Within hours of WhatsApp sending out a tweet promoting its multi-location livestream for New Year’s Eve, the Union minister caught the mistake and brought it up on Meta.
