Justice Shahid Waheed of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday directed the chief secretary to hold an inquiry and find out which official was responsible for providing to high school and elementary school libraries an atlas that showed parts of Pakistan as Indian territory.
The petitioner, the Pakistan Social Justice Party, submitted that the atlases showed Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir as parts of India.
He said that the atlas, which had been published with the help of the German government, was an international conspiracy aimed at making new generations more comfortable with the idea of a smaller Pakistan.
