What does the Google understand on ‘anti-national’?

Anti-NationalWhat’s the image that should be displayed for the word-‘anti-national?’For Google Maps, it’s JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University)

Sounds bizarre.. But it’s true!

If we type anti-national, the one pic that would emerge will be JNU. The latest goof in Google Maps comes in the wake of the recent Jawharlal Nehru University (JNU) controversy that led to the arrest of JNU Students’ Union President Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid, and Anirban Bhattacharya, on charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy. Type in words like “anti national”, “sedition” or “leftist” in Google Maps, and it will take you to Jawharlal Nehru University.

It happened because of the frequent use of terms like “anti national” and “leftist” in reviews of the JNU location on Google Maps along with numerous news stories around the recent incidents at the university that had mention of these terms.
