As someone who created many of the Indian maps on wikipedia, this is a
serious issue which needs a decision as it has been in the gray for quite a
while. I have stopped my contribution of Indian maps ever since i realized
that my work could have legal repercussions. For now, all the maps come with
an explanation of the depiction of the borders and a disclaimer that it may
not conform to local laws.


This is an issue which requires someone with sound legal knowledge to solve,
something for the chapter to take up. Let us not forget that we are creating
a repository of knowledge, if wikipedia ever hid the truth for the sake of
being politically correct, the whole project is pointless.
