Al Jazeera today only showed a blank screen with a message saying that “As instructed by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, this channel will not be available from 00.01 hours on 22nd April till 00.01 hours on 27th April 2015.”

International news channel Al Jazeera was today forced to go off air in the country for five days as the government penalized it for repeatedly showing wrong maps of India.

Al Jazeera had shown a wrong map of India in some of its broadcasts in 2013 and 2014, after which the matter was referred to Surveyor General of India (SGI).
