US state department shows PoK as part of Pakistan

US state department shows PoK as part of Pakistan Says the TOI report.

This depiction has been there for a very long time. And it is not inconsistent with the U.S. govt. position which shows the POK as part of Pakistan, and Indian Kashmir as part of India. So I really do not know what Mr. Parashar's beef is? Adverse possession is an acceptable real estate practice and I do not recall if the GoI ever made a physical stake to claim POK.

Last February, the EXIM bank website depicted Indian Kashmir as part of a different country (CNN and others show the entire Kashmir as another country), and not that is part of India. I brought it to the attention of EXIM. They admitted and corrected the mistake within 24 hours. Now do you get that sort of an efficient response from Indian babus Mr. Parashar? Next, has any Indian head rolled for this (see attachment). Self-respect first, then expect others to respect you! Grovel, and you get kicked!

Dear Mr. Xxxxxx,

I find it objectionable that the EXIM Bank of the United States has an inaccurate map of India depicted on its website. This is contrary to the map recognized by the U.S. government as shown in the Department of State and the CIA websites. Links below.

I would appreciate it greatly if you would please take immediate action to correct this mistake.

Thank you and in anticipation,


Reggie Sinha

Dear Mr. Sinha,

Thank you for your email. I have put in a request to our web team to
exchange the map for the same map that is reflected on the U.S. State Dept
website. I am certain that the intern working on this project placed this
map up by mistake as he was searching for a map with details of as many
Indian cities as possible.

Best regards,
