INDIA TODAY MAGAZINE COVER SHOWING ‘CHINA’s NEW CHICK’ HAS GONE VIRAL ON CHINESE SOCIAL MEDIA :

The cover of the India Today magazine has created a social storm in China.  The cover of the July 31 issue of the India Today magazine has gone viral on Chinese social media platform Wiebo, the country’s substitute for Twitter, and the Chinese are not pleased with the cover. The latest issue of the India Today magazine has the map of China, in red, in the shape of a big chicken and a smaller chick — Pakistan, in green — by its side, along with captions that read “China’s new chick” and “How China is buying out Pakistan with massive new investments and why India needs to worry”, below it.   The Chinese are fuming seeing the cover. Their main contention is that the map on the cover doesn’t show Tibet and Taiwan as its part. In retaliation, there are op-eds, sharply criticising the magazine and India as a whole, being written on Chinese newspapers, and Chinese social media users Photoshopping their answers on to India Today magazine covers.   Rediff.com : 28th.
