It has been observed that Transparency International has shown the wrong map of India on its website. As it is evident from the below image, Transparency International has not shown a part of Kashmir in the Indian Map. Kashmir is very much a part of India and by publishing such a map Transparency International has hurt the sentiments of millions of patriotic Indians and has committed a serious crime against the Nation. It is the duty of all patriotic Indians to protest lawfully against Transparency International, so that it stops the distortion of the Indian map and it should render a public apology for hurting the national sentiments of Indians.
Forum for Hindu Awakening (FHA), wrote about this distortion of the map of India to the managing directors of Transparency International but there has been no response from them. (The letter explaining the distortion is published below.)
We now appeal to you to protest lawfully and peacefully against this distortion of the Indian map. We also suggest you write at following email ids requesting them to stop this distortion:
Please see below the email sent by FHA to managing directors of the Transparency International:

Subject: Appeal to stop the distortion of the map of India on your website
We came across the distortion of the Indian map on your website http://www.transparency.org/cpi2014/results
There is also wide spread news in the local news papers about this serious matter. The Map of India displayed on the webpage does not show the complete state of Jammu and Kashmir, which is very much a part of India. You have deleted a major part of Jammu and Kashmir from the Indian map on your website. This is not in accordance with the Official Map of India by the Government of India available on link http://www.mapsofindia.com/maps/india/india-political-map.htm. By this act you have distorted the Indian map and presented an incorrect map to the world. Kindly note that in the process it leads to hurting the National sentiments of India and committing a National offense. We respect and honor the commendable work done by Transparency International. However it is indeed surprising for such a blunder to occur on the part of such a reputable organization.
In view of the above we request you to immediately correct the map and tender an apology for hurting the National sentiments due to displaying an incorrect map of India.
We request you to acknowledge this letter and inform us regarding the action taken by you at the earliest.
