In the animated clip, Superman and Wonder Woman, two of DC Comics' most powerful superheroes, can be seen destroying military infrastructure in Kashmir that gets mentioned as 'disputed' region. This has not gone down well with Indian viewers
A video is doing the rounds online, appearing to show Superman and Wonder Woman 'solving' the Kashmir 'dispute'. It's not clear whether the animated clip is officially produced by DC, the comics home of Superman, whose official YouTube channel does not host the video. But the mention of Kashmir as 'disputed' has riled many social media users in India.
Jammu and Kashmir is an inseparable part of India.
The clip purportedly shows Superman and Wonder Woman, two of the most powerful heroes from the DC Comic Universe, destroying military equipment in 'disputed Kashmir'.
Media reports said the two heroes are destroying Indian military infrastructure. The voiceover in the clip can says that Superman and Wonder Woman destroy 'every piece of military equipment declaring 'an arms-free zone'. There is no apparent mention of India or Pakistan but Kashmir can be heard as being referred to as a 'disputed' territory.
And many netizens are not happy.
"Why are they so specific about Kashmir? First they refer to an imaginary place like m'gota, but the next moment they mention Kashmir. Its better to keep quiet about complex geopolitical affairs that they don't know anything about..." says a Twitter user.
