India Censors The Economist’s Kashmir Map

Copies of the latest issue of The Economist distributed in India have been censored: a map showing the disputed status of Kashmir has been covered over by a white sticker in some 30,000 copies, BBC News reports. I knew the Indian authorities were touchy about this subject, but I wasn’t aware that they would go as far as this — I thought they usually stamped them super bad map or something. Via Collins Maps.
