Pakistan’s national Television, PTV forgets to include Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan as a part of Pakistan in one of their children’s programs on June 6.

In the show, the kid was showing the population division of Pakistan through the map, but surprisingly the map has not shown the areas of Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan.

Is it a mistake or a conscious move?

There is a wave of distress and disgust all over social media. Twitter users are not in a mood to let go of this incident again as this is not the first time.

In one of the PTV’s promo, they termed AJK as “Pakistan occupied Kashmir”.

 Later on, Indian media started using this term in their news coverage of AJK.

 

Moreover, In 2011, one of the leading brands Nestle Nesvita aired the incomplete map of Pakistan. while advertising the ‘Women of Strength’ campaign. However, after facing severe criticism Nestle was urged to change the map and revise the ad.

 Besides Nestle, Khaadi made the same mistake in 2017. they showed Kashmir as a part of India in their clothes. After this blunder from Khaadi, Pakistani decides to boycott their products. Afterward, Khaadi publicly apologized and removed the product from the shelves.

Netizens are condemning the so-called mistake of the national television of Pakistan. People on Twitter are demanding the Minister for Information Senator Shibli Faraz and other authorities to take stern action against the management of PTV.

Sadly, Google is filled with hundreds of maps without showing Kashmir a part of Pakistan. Such cases happened when the government does not crack down immediately.

Reactions from authorities and politicians

That is to say, no statement came from Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz on the issue. However, to tackle this matter PTV has said “It will take strict notice against the misrepresentation of the map of Pakistan.

Further, Shireen Mazari also shares her words regarding this matter.

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry banishes the MD of PTV citing the value of Kashmir for Pakistan.

Special Assistant to Chief Minister Sindh Javed Nayab Laghari blames the PTI government and said:

People keep criticizing the management of PTV for such an irresponsible act.

 

Even though controversies for PTV are nothing new but this incident frayed the whole nation’s temper away. Further, this blunder puts a question mark on the credibility of the national television.
