Hindustan Times for publishing a wrong map of India
Dehradun Tarun Vijay former MP from Uttarakhand has filed a complaint against an English daily published from New Delhi for publishing an Indian map which shows Kashmir in Pakistan and Arunachal Pradesh in China on a day when BRICS summit began. He said that Publishing wrong map is a crime, not to say a sin against Indian people and the constitution and all those revolutionaries who fought freedom struggle and gave supreme sacrifices.
According to the Criminal Act Amendment Act 1990, published in the Gazette of India it’s a punishable offence up to 6 month of imprisonment with fine ( copy enclosed). Through this letter I am lodging a complaint against the editor, publisher and owners of The Hindustan Times for publishing a wrong map of India on page 12 (China daily supplement page 3) today.
I request you to lodge a police complaint against this newspaper for showing Kashmir in Pakistan and Arunachal Pradesh out of India, this is a horrendous crime. Such people who publish India’s wrong boundaries under whatever arrangement should be punished in an exemplary way.
This is an assault on the honor of our forces that are valiantly defending the motherland by sacrificing their lives. There cannot be more disgusting action by this Indian media house. This newspaper has chosen the day when BRICS summit in Goa has begun thus insulting the people of India, Indian Forces and at a time when honorable Prime Minister is chairing the BRICS summit.
An urgent action is requested and I am sure that police action is needed to be taken against this newspaper and they must apologies for this criminal act on the front page in the next immediate edition. Mr Venkaiah Naidu assured Mr Tarun Vijay that strict action against such acts and has instructed the Secy I&B to immediately take appropriate action in this regard.The cartographic depiction of India’s wrong map and the relevant law copy is attached.
