Accusing India of being “more intolerant” than “either China or Pakistan” on the issue of its disputed territorial claims, The Economist has warned its Indian readers that they may be “deprived” of a map it carries in its latest issue to illustrate a 14-page special report on the country.
It invites them to see an “accurate description” of the various territorial claims by using its interactive map on its website.
A box item, “Missing map?” says: “Sadly India censors maps that show the current effective border, insisting instead that only its full territorial claims be shown. It is more intolerant on this issue than either China or Pakistan. Indian readers will probably be deprived of the map on the second page of this special report. Unlike their government, we think our Indian readers can face political reality. Those who want to see an accurate depiction of the various territorial claims can do so using our interactive map at Economist.com/asianborders.”
