New Delhi: Facebook CEO Mark Zukerberg did not get many good wishes from Indians when he celebrated his birthday yesterday.

One of the probable reasons behind the lukewarm response of Indians was their annoyance with Zuckerberg over a picture that he posted on facebook featuring the map of India without Jammu and Kashmir.

After the Indian audiences registered their vociferous protest, Zuckerberg has finally removed that post.

However, he hasn't reacted or responded to the controversy about the post.

Zuckerberg posted the picture on May 13 announcing the launch of Internet.org in Malawi, Africa.  It shows countries where facebooks's initiative has been projected.

He wrote, "With this launch, Internet.org is now available to more than 1 billion people around the world!"

Displeased Indians took no time to spot his error and educated him about it with their comments on the post.

"Great Job, Please correct the Indian MAP on this Picture, Kashmir is missing," one of the Indians commented.

Another Facebook user fixed Zuckerberg's mistake and corrected it with the right map if India.

Simultaneously on Twitter, there was another controversy over the map of India that state run China television China carried, where Arunachal and Kashmir had been removed, which china claims as theirs.

PM Modi, who is on his 3 day official visit to china, talked to the Chinese President and raised India's objections to Beijing issuing stamped visas  Arunachal residents.
