Days after Twitter India showed Ladakh as a part of the People’s Republic of China, a panel of MPs on data protection said on Wednesday that the clarification offered by the micro-blogging website is “inadequate.” Twitter India officials were quizzed by the parliamentary Joint Committee on Data protection following a major controversy that erupted after a distinguished fellow of India-based think tank Observer Research Foundation pointed out that Twitter India showed Jammu and Kashmir as a part of the People’s Republic of China. The Committee was unanimous in its view that Twitter’s explanation was inadequate, the panel’s chairman Meenakshi Lekhi told news agency PTI. The BJP MP added that showing Ladakh as part of China amounted to a criminal offence which could attract jail for up to seven years. Lekhi added that authorities at Twitter said that it respects the sensitivities of India.
