Atlas error raises controversy

Amidst intense controversy over the territorial boundaries of North East India, the New Delhi based Oxford University Press (OUP) has wrongly marked the “Manipur Hills” as “Naga Hills” in its 32nd edition of the school atlas released this year.

The said edition of the school atlas has been banned completely by the Manipuri Students’ Federation (MSF) and it has sought rectification from the publisher.

Speaking to media-persons at the head office of MSF, president Md. Attabuddin stated that the error which appears in the school atlas of OUP regarding the boundaries of Manipur is quite misleading to the young students and hence the federation has taken up the extreme action of banning the said book in the state.
