India censors the Economist over Kashmir map
27 May 2011
BY INTERN

The Indian government forced The Economist to use a sticker to conceal a map of Kashmir in the magazine. The magazine’s cover story, which utilised the map, was on the region’s border disputes. Nearly 30,000 censored issues were distributed in India. India has claimed Kashmir as its own but The Economist shows how regions of Kashmir are also held by Pakistan and China.
