Commonwealth Games Federation website shows incorrect map of India

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) was embroiled in a controversy today because of a distorted India map put on its website. India is the host country for 2010 (Commonwealth Games) CWG to be held in October.

At the time of publishing this post, we have taken a snapshot of map of India and Pakistan from Commonwealth Games Federation's website,  http://www.thecgf.com/countries/ and have posted the same here (Please note that we do not endorse the map shown here).
The map of India on Commonwealth Games Federation's website shows some areas of Jammu and Kashmir and Gujarat as parts of Pakistan and organisers of the 2010 Commonwealth Games today said they have raised the issue with CGF officials.

"We have noticed it and told CGF officials about it. They have promised to revert back to us on the issue," Organising Committee secretary Lalit Bhanot said.

"They would definitely correct it. We were told that they would talk to the people who maintain the site and get back to us," added Bhanot.

The CGF Chief executive Officer Mike Hooper, who is based in New Delhi to oversee the preparations of the Commonwealth Games (CWG), could not be immediately reached for his comments.
