Beijing, Aug. 20 (ANI): Chinese telecom giant Huawei's message to Pakistan on its 67th Independence Day has reportedly offended the country by failing to include the disputed region of Kashmir as part of Pakistan's territory on its Facebook page.
Tech in Asia has pointed out that Huawei had taken the Google Maps image of Pakistan and colored it green along with part, but not all of Kashmir.
The tagline along the map that said: 'smart ideas can alter the course of history' has ignited a fiery debate over Huawei's depiction of the current political reality between India and Pakistan, while some taking the map as offensive.
The controversy comes at a time when the relations between the India and Pakistan have been further strained after the August 6 Line of Control violation in Poonch that claimed the lives of five Indian soldiers.
The company has since deleted the message from its Facebook page, as it doesn't want to get involved politically, especially when it has just got a big infrastructure contract in Pakistan. (ANI)
