原文标题：Map row: India calls China's action 'unacceptable', hits back
NEW DELHI/BEIJING: India on Friday termed as "unacceptable" China depicting Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin as its territory in maps of the country on their new e-passports, a step that led to retaliatory action by New Delhi.
China sprung the surprise on India when it showed these territories as part of its own in the maps on their new e-passports.
The Indian embassy in Beijing responded by issuing visas to Chinese nationals with a map of India including Arunachal and Aksai Chin as part of its territory.
In India's first official reaction, external affairs minister Salman Khurshid said, "We are not prepared to accept it."

It's high time, India should change its position on TIBET. Tibet has never been part of China untill the communist under MAO ZEDONG invaded it in 1959. By appeasing the CHINESE on the issue of TIBET, India has unwittingly threatened its own security. The mere existence of CHINA on the other side of the border, which wouldn't have occurred in the first place, makes our nation vulnerable to aggression. India must declare, TIBET was never a Part of China and that it was wrongfully invaded in 1959.

Surely CHina has more important issues to deal with than pick up this old fight. They know the Indian government will not let this pass, so why are they giving the finger...probably want concession for some trade deal!
India should react even more strongly by showing Tibet as an independent country and rake up the issue of freedom to Tibet.

China has also included islands in South China Sea , Spratly island chain and are claimed by Taiwan, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines. Philipines and Vietnam have already objected HENCE OUR SLEEPING INDIAN GOVERNMENT HAS WOKEN UP. It is interesting the Indian government did not comment on the wrong depiction of south china sea and its islands. India should make its statements on South china sea also TO PUT CHINA IN ITS PLACE. Also China's new passports DON'T include islands in the East China Sea that are claimed by China that are under Japanese control.
Stupid T0I -- if you call showing Arunachal and Aksai Chin as part of India's map RETALIATORY -- it means we have already given up our claim on these two regions as India's integral parts. Think before you write, mor0ns!

A proper reaction to Chinese action would have been to start showing Tibet as an independent nation.

From Last 1 week lot of people commented against Gaza without knowing the truth." Israel has occupied the Palestine" and the Indian people supported Israel in blogs & comments. When it comes to Indian land everyone is saying its wrong.Invading other countries is also a terrorism. If you support terrorist countries like Israel & US you will also bear the heat. We have to appreciate the guts of Gaza people and shame on people who comments against Palestine without knowing the truth.

Retaliation is not by including in the map what is already ours. (India hit back by issuing visas to Chinese nationals with a map of India including these places as part of its territory). Instead India should start recognizing Tibet as a separate country and depicting it so on all our maps and encouraging Republic of Tibet to start participating in International Forums.

Stop giving visa to Chinese passport holders showing Tibet as a part of China. China has problems with all its neighbors. China is a bully and must be stopped by all countries bordering China. Then and then she can learn the lesson.Congress party wake up or you will be defeated in the polls.

Shiva spans many cultures and is borderless. But formerly Tibet must have been Shiva's territory. Actually, Tibet was always unique; and is the little explored piece of a puzzle linking indian, sino-tibetan and central asian cultures.

In India's case, printing maps is good but enforcing what is on the map is more important. For a start India can expedite the resurrection of airfields that were abandoned in the north east after WWII. No country in the past has trusted China regarding borders, trade and treaties this includes the former Soviet Union.

The dragon is restless, he claim Hong Kong and got it, now there is claim over Tiawan, Arunchal and Eastern India, they are funding terrorist groups such as the Naxals and Maoist to destablise Eastern India. Diplomacy is always the best way forward if fail then an only then military employed. They have spent billions building train tracks to Tibet and roads accross the region. The aim of the dragon is Middle East oil.

I think india should take a tough stand. If a small country like Phillipines shows the courage to stand against them, what is india fearing for. India should take the position of big brother with countries like Phillipines, vietnam and malaysia supporting it.
