Khaadi Gets Blasted on Social Media for Not Showing Kashmir as Part of Pakistan
2 months ago
The Kashmir Valley, which is also referred to as heaven on Earth, is an integral part of Pakistan and there’s no denying it.
At a time when normal Kashmiris are suffering at the hands of the Indian Army, the least we could do is be mindful of their issues and support them morally.
This basic fact it seems, was lost on a renowned and local clothing brand ‘Khaadi’. It recently featured products that had a map of Pakistan, without showing Kashmir as a part of it.
The ignorance showed by the leading clothing brand has sparked a wave of outrage towards the brand.
If that wasn’t enough, Indians have also highlighted this issue and are mocking Khaadi as well.

But that wasn’t the only thing that Khaadi did wrong. It has also made mistakes in the Gilgit-Baltistan map.
People are seriously considering boycotting the brand over such a shameful act.
INTENTIONAL ALTERATION OF MAP OF ANY COUNTRY IS CRIME. The way verses of Quran and Kalma e Tayyeb was intervened in…
Everyone is making it clear loud and out that Kashmir was never a part of India.
Khaadi's new coasters have altered the Pakistan map. They should be reminded on every social media that Kashmir was, is and will always will be Pakistan.
While others are questioning the intention behind the controversial map.
These map coasters at #Khaadi use a wrong map of #Pakistan sans Kashmir.What could be the intention?
Social media pages have started sharing the post as much as possible to bring the issue to limelight.
Khaadi launched new prints but Pakistan's map is incomplete Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan shown as part of india. Raise your voice against Khaadi
It certainly cannot be ignored.
When the brand which was given life by Pakistanis, Khaadi, insults Pakistani map by not showing Kashmir …We shall not accept it as another innocent oversight#KashmirBanegaPakistan#WakeUpPakistan
Kashmir Banega Pakistan.
Khaadi launched new prints but Pakistan's map is incomplete Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan shown as part of india. Raise your voice against Khaadi۔
Khaadi Responds Finally
After a few days when the issue first surfaced, Khaadi’s official Facebook page has apologized for the ‘human error.’
It is requesting everyone to forgive them for the mistake.
