Google Maps shows JNU as anti-national!

Submitted by rajiv on Fri, 2016-03-25 15:00 New Delhi: In a bizarre development, search giant Google has landed in a soup after its 'Google Map' application has been showing the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) under the key word 'anti-national'. Even though the blunder seems to be completely innocuous, the varsity was annoyed by the gaffe by the world's largest search engine. “On the face of it, it looks offensive. We will contact Google authorities and find out why and how such a thing can happen. There would be some technical issues involved but we need to find out why JNU is being shown in the map for location search of anti-national,” Shehla Rashid Shora, vice-president, JNUSU, was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times. JNU Students' Union President Kanhaiya Kumar and other students such as Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattachary faced massive backlash from the Centre and the Delhi Police over the event at the campus on February 9 where anti-national slogans were allegedly raised. Kanhaiya is out on interim bail and has already launched a frontal attack on the Narendra Modi-led government.
