The Kolkata-based daily newspaper Anandabazar has apologized for using derogatory remarks aimed at Bangladesh in a report publish on June 20.

With a headline reading “correcting the mistake” on Tuesday’s page 4, the newspaper authorities apologized.

Anandabazar wrote, “Under the headline 'Beijing is pulling Dhaka aside after Ladakh' - many readers were hurt by the use of the word ‘khoyraati’ (charity). We apologize for the inconvenience and apologize unconditionally."

However, the online version of the newspaper still has the term.

At the beginning of the report entitled "Beijing is pulling Dhaka after Ladakh," it was written that "China's attempt to get Bangladesh by its side by doling out charity (khoyraati) and investment is not new."

Bangladeshis are criticizing Anandabazar for the derogatory comment in social media.

A Bangladeshi online news portal reported that, Quddus Afrad, the Bangladesh correspondent of Anandabazar, protested the report on June 21.

"I want to make it clear that this report is not my writing," he said.

“I personally protest this report.” He also said that the authorities have been informed about the reaction of the people of Bangladesh to the report.

India seems to facing border problems with two of its neighbours, Nepal and China. India’s border challenges with Nepal and China are not new.

The India-China border problem dates back to a war between the two sides in 1962 and are result of the lack of a clearly demarcated boundary despite countless rounds of talks.

The current tensions have arisen in an area in Ladakh in Kashmir with Indian and Chinese armies bringing in more troops into areas like Demchok, Daulat Beg Oldie and around Galwan River as well as Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh.

At least 20 Indian troops, including a commanding colonel, killed in hand-to-hand combat between Indian and Chinese troops in Galwan Valley along the LAC on June 15.

Beijing doesn't confirm Indian media reports of Chinese casualties.

China denies capturing Indian soldiers in the skirmish after Indian media report Beijing's release of 10 of them, including a colonel and two majors.

The upper house of Nepal’s parliament approved a new map of the country on June 18 including land controlled by India, in a row that has strained ties between the South Asian neighbours.

Days after Nepal approved new map, Kathmandu has stopped all repair work of river embankments in Bihar on the India-Nepal border.
