The locally-made map shows the Aksai chin area in India seizes by china

Locally made map showing Aksai chin area in India seize by china

Chinese customs recently seized a large consignment of locally manufactured world maps, which showed Aksai Chin and Arunachal Pradesh as part of India.

China has claimed the north-eastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh as part of South Tibet and occupies the India-claimed Aksai Chin region, mostly part of the southwest Hotan county of Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR).

The consignment, worth some $600, was confiscated during a check by the customs department at the Shanghai Pudong international airport.

At least 300 packages circulated as "bed covers" were pulled out of the express channel for closer inspection during the check-up, a report on the website, ThePaper.com said.

The maps on the "bed covers" showed Arunachal and Aksai Chin as Indian territories as Indian maps show.

The report said.

The goods were capturing straight away as they violated legal provisions regulating how Chinese maps should be pulling out.

The regulations are setting down under China's State Council, or cabinet's

"Regulations on the Management of Map Drawing and Publication."

The regulations say Chinese maps should not show content that endangers national unity, sovereignty, and territorial integrity.

The brief article did not mention the manufacturer's identity or where the maps were to be transporting. The consignment of cloth material is likely to be destroyed, and the manufacturing company expects to be punished with a heavy fine and censured.

As discussed in the report, angry Chinese netizens demanded that the company be shut down immediately and called on the authorities to punish the owner.

In March 2019, nearly 30,000 world maps showing Arunachal Pradesh as a part of India and Taiwan as an independent country were demolishing by customs authorities in the city of Qingdao in the eastern province of Shandong.

"A total of 803 boxes with 28,908 incorrect maps were captue and demolished, the largest amount to disposed of in years,"

the province's Natural Resources Ministry said; the maps were taken to a secret location and shredded.

China is particularly sensitive to the depiction of Arunachal Pradesh as a part of Indian territory and even opposes the visit of Indian leaders to the state.

Last week, China criticized the channel NBC Universal for showing an "incomplete map" of the country in its broadcast of the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony after a map displayed during the arrival of Chinese athletes did not include Taiwan or the South China Sea.

The display "hurt the dignity and emotions of the Chinese people," the Chinese consulate in New York said in a social media post on its official Weibo social media account.

China's sensitivity over territorial claims doesn't stop at maps.

In 2018, India's national carrier Air India changed the name of Taiwan to Chinese Taipei on its website after China raised concerns about Taiwan being described as a separate region by various airlines worldwide.

Air India was among 40 international airlines to do so.

Also, last year, the US clothing company GAP had to apologize for selling T-shirts with a map of China that didn't show Taiwan or the South China Sea.

The international hotel chain Marriott had its Chinese website briefly blocked for listing the Tibet Autonomous Region, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau as separate countries in a questionnaire for customers in 2018.
