WTF…First Google Maps and Now Yahoo Maps shows Kashmir in Pakistan
To be honest with you, I generally do not check Yahoo Maps – Infact, it is for the first time in years that I logged into Yahoo Maps. It was only after one of our readers sent me an email showing me the error, did I login to Yahoo Maps.
If you try to look at map of India on Yahoo Maps, it is clearly showing the disputed part of Kashmir as part of Pakistan.
Here is the snapshot I took today morning [10/4/2010 11:30am]
Yahoo Map of Kashmir
Here is the link to Yahoo maps which shows above map.
Interestingly, it shows part of Kashmir which is disputed with China separately. If you are not aware, here is the proper breakup of the Disputed and non-disputed borders of Kashmir.
First it was Google Maps, which was showing the Kashmir in Pakistan and now it is Yahoo Maps (I can’t really confirm, if the Yahoo Map is changed recently or whether it was showing like this from the start).
It is seriously high-time that Indian Government puts its foot down and ensures that these kind of sensitive discrepancies are taken care of.. Look at Chinese Government, they have even pressurized Apple to show Arunachal Pradesh as part of China !
What do you think?
