The project was recently inaugurated by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The map clearly shows Azad Jammu and Kashmir and even Gilgit-Baltistan as part of India.

No one from the government circles took notice of this blatant act of ignorance and inefficiency on part of CASA inauguration ceremony organisers. Even the ambassadors present there also failed to take note of it.

Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has expressed his displeasure over the incident. The map issue is not the first time to have stirred up a controversy. Last year, a teacher of Punjab University was suspended for three months after the university administration found that a wrong map was used in a department workshop.



Vice Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran suspended Dr Abida Nasreen, Assistan Professor of Institute of Education and Research, for three months after publication of a wrong map of Pakistan not showing Kashmir region.
