J&K, AP out of Google maps

According to Google, the Jammu & Kashmir and Arunachal Pradesh states are not a part of India.

Lately when I was going through Google Analytics map, I happen to realize that data from J&K and AP is not available. I wondered whether J&K and AP have been gifted to Pakistan and China respectively after the Google India map controversy. Later I tried maps of Pakistan and China only to see that the states have not been included in their maps too.

Therefore, J&K and AP are now officially kicked out of Google analytics and no analytics data from these states will be available, nobody knows till when.

Should Google not follow the international borders guidelines by the UN?

What is your opinion on this?

    We have already opposed these double standards of google, No individual or company has the right to change our map, there may be controversy on the states but the entire world knows they belong to India, It may be any country which claims Indian Territories to be of its own but the reality wont change by this.

    Google is playing Big boss game. Today I too surprised to find this!!! I tried to click Kashmir and I am unable to open it. There is no reason to kick those out or it should state in their blog why they do so

    Pakistan & China have illegally grabbed some part of Jammu & Kashmir.
    (While Pakistan has no control on their own provinces – Swaat, Baluchistan, Wazaristan which are being ruled by Talibani terrorists)

    China is claiming Arunachal Pradesh also, which is simply non-sense because basically Tibet is not a part of China.
    Entire world knows how cruel China had grabbed Tibet. And because of such dictatorship mentality of Chinese government, Google also had to quit its service in China.

    Jammu & Kashmir & Arunachal Pradesh are unbreakable parts of India.

    Google should do one thing. Two Chinese provinces – Tibet & Xinjiang(East Turkestan), they should also be shown as controversial or separate lands on Google Map & Google Analytics.
    Unless Google is scared of Chinese Hackers rather I should say Chinese cyber terrorists.
