Jammu and Kashmir exam paper refers to PoK as ‘Azad Kashmir’, question setting ‘expert’ blacklisted

A question on the Jammu and Kashmir Services Selection Board’s exam referred to Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) as “Azad Kashmir”. Following outrage on social media, the chairman of the board, Simrandeep Singh, has nullified the question and ordered an inquiry on the same. Pakistan refers to the part of Kashmir which is under its illegal occupation, as ‘Azad Kashmir’.

The question read, “Jammu and Kashmir has an international border with China in the north and east, and the Line of Control separates it from the Pakistan-controlled territories of Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan in:

a) north and north-east respectively
b) south and south-east respectively
c) east and north-east respectively
d) west and north-west respectively”

Singh has said that the ‘expert’ who framed the question has been blacklisted. The question has since been nullified.
