Sony TV shows wrong India map

Notice something wrong?

The state of Jammu & Kashmir appears to be broken up into 4 parts, with a distinctive border from the rest of India.

This appeared on Sony TV (you can see the logo in the top right corner). Ignore the Airtel logo though, that’s just because this program was being broadcast through an Airtel set-top box.

Maps are symbols and important ones at that. Consider the fact that every single major war in the world has been rooted in a territory dispute, right from the Mahabharata to our modern day Indo-Pak tensions. We can’t afford to make a mistake like this one.

What’s more, as a major media channel going out to a wide Indian populace, what message does this send out?
