PoK not part of India, shows this map on prospectus of college owned by RJD MP
The map printed on the duvet of the prospectus of Katihar Medical School.
- The medical school is owned by Rajya Sabha MP Asfaq Karim.
- School administration says it’s a printing error, nothing intentional.
- Union minister Giriraj Singh says it’s a part of ‘conspiracy to divide India’.
A non-public medical school owned by Rajya Sabha MP Asfaq Karim has triggered an issue after its prospectus carried a map exhibiting Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) as a part of Pakistan.
The Katihar Medical School that’s owned by the Rashtriya Janata Dal MP, in its prospectus for post-graduate college students of 2018-19 carries a map of India on the duvet. The mentioned map excludes PoK from the Indian territory.
The faculty administration has brushed the difficulty saying it’s a printing error.
Parvesh Shama, a senior official within the administration, mentioned, “That is only a printing error. There was nothing intentional in it.”
In the meantime, police and officers from the native administration have reached the school and are investigating the matter.
The RJD MP couldn’t be reached for his feedback on the controversy.
O the opposite hand, reacting to concern, Union minister Giriraj Singh alleged that this to be “yet one more try to divide the nation”.
He claimed that he has been warning towards a “concerted effort being made by supporters of Muhammad Ali Jinnah to divide the nation”.
“Publishing this mistaken map of India is a manifestation of this [conspiracy],” he mentioned.
The minister added: “For previous few months, I’ve been saying that there’s a conspiracy at work to interrupt the nation. Jinnah’s supporters have already intruded into the nation. This mistaken map is yet one more instance of how they’re attempting to interrupt the nation.”
