Twitter’s Defense for Incorrect India Map Inappropriate: Parliament Panel

Twitter’s explanations regarding questioning by the Joint Draft Law of Parliament’s Personal Data Protection Committee showing Ladakh as part of China have been inadequate and its actions constitute a criminal offense that carries a seven-year prison sentence, the committee chairman said, Meenakshi Lekhi, on Wednesday. Representatives from Twitter appeared before the parliamentary panel when they were summoned over the controversy.

Twitter representatives included Shagufta Kamran, Senior Manager, Public Policy; Ayushi Kapoor, legal advisor; Pallavi Walia, political communication; and Manvinder Bali, Corporate Security. Lekhi said they told the panel that Twitter respects India’s sensitivities.

“It’s not just about sensitivity, but also about India’s sovereignty and integrity. Ladakh, as part of China, is a crime that entails a seven-year prison sentence,” Lekhi told Press Trust of India. She said that the committee unanimously believed that Twitter’s statement to show Ladakh as part of China was insufficient.

Officials from the Ministry of Electronics, Information and Technology and the Ministry of Law and Justice also sat before the panel.
