inclusion of Taiwan in a map of China, the cover of the latest issue of the magazine India Today, not only excludes Taiwan from Chinese territory, but it also carved away Tibet from its posterior, while a tiny green chick in the shape of Pakistan stands behind it.

The creative illustration for its cover story, titled “China’s New Chick,” which analyzes China and Pakistan’s growing economic ties, was selected as the “The Cover of the Day” by the Society of Publication Designers (SPD), New York.

China’s Sina News quickly responded by asking “Where’s our Tibet and Taiwan?” In the article, India Today claims that the China-Pakistan economic corridor (CPEC) is laying the groundwork for a “takeover of Pakistan by China,” for it to eventually become “China’s colony.”
