 India warns Twitter: Leh points to China, govt says never insults country's integrity

A map published on Twitter showed Leh's geo-location in China

After the warning, Twitter said - it respects India's feelings

The central government has warned micro-blogging site Twitter of misrepresenting the map of India. Twitter called Leh part of China. Subsequently, Electronics and Information Technology Ministry Secretary Ajay Sahni wrote a letter to Twitter warning that it was illegal to display such maps. No such attempt to insult India's integrity and sovereignty will be tolerated.

The controversy began when a map published on Twitter showed Leh's geo-location in China. Subsequently, a letter from the Government of India to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey stated that Leh is the headquarters of the Ladakh region. According to the Indian Constitution, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are an integral part of the country. The letter also questioned Twitter's impartiality and facts about being a yogi.

Respect the sentiments of India: Twitter

Following the government's letter, a spokesman for the micro-blogging site said Twitter was committed to working with the Indian government. The government's letter has been confirmed via Twitter. And said he respects the sentiments attached to the issue.
