Censorship — Map scares Indian Media


Economist accuses India of censorship over Kashmir map

The Economist magazine has accused India of hostile censorship after being forced by the country’s authorities to cover up a map in its latest edition.

Nearly 30,000 copies of the latest edition of The Economist are being distributed in India with a blank white sticker placed over a map of Kashmir.

The Economist says it was merely reflecting the current effective border, adding that India is more intolerant on the issue than either Pakistan or China.
