It’s okay to make mistakes, isn’t it?
Well, not all have the liberty of making mistakes. Ask the Indian Railway Police that. They have just got their app ‘Surakshit Safar’ (Safe Journey) developed, and to make it look more attractive, the developer used the photo of an iconic green Pakistani train for its dashboard.
To make things worse, the app was developed for Narendra Modi’s home state Gujarat. Let me ask again if it’s okay to make mistakes. Certainly not.
The app itself is a great utility for passengers who can report emergencies, cases related to trafficking, missing children, unauthorized entry, and drugs.
Deputy Inspector General of Police, CID-Crime, and Railways, Gautam Parmar, has admitted the mistake, terming it an unintentional error.
In the process, he inadvertently used a photograph of a Pakistani train. Upon learning about it, we have asked the developer to remove it. It was an unintentional error.
It has now been removed after social media users pointed out the gaffe. The mobile application was launched by Gujarat Minister of State for Home, Pradeepsinh Jadeja, on 29th February.
