Oz govt omits J&K, Arunachal as part of India

A map of India on an Australian government website has omitted the states of Jammu and Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh triggering strong protests from the Indian community in the country.



Melbourne/New Delhi: A map of India on
an Australian government website has omitted the states of
Jammu and Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh triggering strong
protests from the Indian community in the country.

Following the protests, Australia admitted that the
map was an "error" and said it will be removed from the
website.
"The map was an error and is being removed from
the website." an Australian High Commission spokesperson in
New Delhi said today.

The Indian community in Australia had lodged strong
protests with the Australian government over the incorrect map
of India, posted on a government website in Australia which
omitted the border states of J and K and Arunachal Pradesh.

The website of the Department of Immigration and
Citizenship (DIAC) of Australia had the "incorrect" map in its
website.
The Council of Indian Australians Inc (CIA), an apex
body representing the Indian Australian community in New South
Wales, had asked the DIAC to correct the map on its website.

"The CIA Inc wishes to bring this (incorrect map) to
the attention of the Government of Australia and urges the
DIAC to rectify this incorrect map and display the revised map
showing correct boundaries," a CIA statement said.
