Jim_Carter added a comment to T215073: OSM map layers other than the default should be displayable in the Wikidata Query Service.

We do not have editorial control over the data in Wikidata, yet less on maps provided by the third party. We also are not subject neither to Indian law nor the Twitter audience "law". The situation where some governing body has objection to some content in the open sources or wide Internet, whether on Wikimedia or not, is completely routine and happens all the time. It would certainly be unfortunate if somebody overreacts and makes some unfortunate moves due to any particular situation, however whatever happens does not change these basic facts. We show what OSM maps provide.
We may certainly consider implementing different layers or different providers (I have no idea how hard or easy that is), but this decision I think should be driven by technical merits and community needs, not by whether some Twitter users like or dislike certain content.

I'm sorry but this is not unbreak now.
How is the current situation different from how things are on Wikipedia?

Jim_Carter triaged T215073: OSM map layers other than the default should be displayable in the Wikidata Query Service as Unbreak Now! priority.

It has been subject to criticism from the audience of twitter because it is currently in violation of a law in Indian Penal Code and any cartographer making such inaccurate map is accountable for their action and is subject to a fine not less than 15 Million US Dollars https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/05/06/cartographers-beware-india-warns-of-15-million-fine-for-maps-it-doesnt-like/?noredirect=on
