Micro-blogging platform Twitter has been questioned by the Indian Government over India’s map, which shows Leh as part of Jammu & Kashmir ‘instead of a separate Union Territory’. The Government claims that Twitter has disrespected India’s territorial integrity with the ‘incorrect map’, and has given the company five days to explain this error.

Media reports suggest that an ‘unsatisfactory explanation’ will not bode well for the platform.
