Google map cedes Indian Himalayan state to China

Google, the internet search engine published a map which cedes parts of the Indian Himalayan states to China. Google’s satellite map of the border area between India and China show several Indian towns in Arunachal Pradesh listed under their Chinese names as part of the People’s Republic of China. The maps also show the state’s southern border with Assam and its northern boundary with China as broken lines, indicating disputed territory. It also appears to question India’s borders with Burma and Bhutan. The publication of the map has provoked an angry response in India, where tensions are high following a series of public statements in which Chinese officials have denounced New Delhi for refusing to discuss a border dispute. China claims vast swathes of Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir as well as Arunachal Pradesh, which it says were illegally ceded to India during the British Raj. It rejects the “MacMahon Line” border drawn up by British and Tibetan officials at the 1913 Shimla Conference.
