Social media platform Twitter has landed itself in a new controversy after it emerged that it was showing Ladakh as part of China on its interface.

Users shared screenshots of Twitter's blunder, which was first pointed out by National Security Analyst Nitin A Gokhale.

Nitin was doing a live broadcast on Twitter from the war memorial in Ladakh when he spotted that the social media network had tagged it as part of the People’s Republic of China. 

He took to Twitter to post: "Tweeple please put Hall of Fame Leh as your location for live broadcast and see what's happening. It shows the location as Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Republic of China. I tested it again. Outrageous.” 

The analyst, whos is yet to get a response from Twitter on the glaring error, also shared screengrabs of the video, stating: "Nitin A Gokhale was live. Jammu and Kashmir, People’s Republic of China."

A second attempt, this time from Leh's Kushak Bakula Airport, shockingly yielded the same result. 

Twitter's blunder trigger a wave of angry outbursts on social media, with most requesting the government to take strict action against the social media platform and some seeking total ban on it in India.
