    However, several Indian net users were not amused by the graphic which missed what many Indians call "an inseparable part of India" -- the state of Jammu & Kashmir. So much so that some on the social media also called for a ban on Facebook if the map was not immediately corrected.

    Zuckerberg later deleted his post.

    Zuckerberg and Facebook have already been facing a tough time in India recently as Internet.org has come under attack from net neutrality advocates.

    Internet.org is aimed at providing free internet access to billions by offering select content and services for free to those who cannot afford or do not want to pay for internet access.
