Iranian and Arab governments haven’t been very cordial towards each other since quite a long time. The water body that runs between Iran, KSA, UAE, Bahrain and Qatar has been, for a long time, termed the Persian Gulf. It has been tagged so too at Google’s mapping service. However, Google has recently removed the tag which has triggered an angry response from Iranian government.


While it may sound a trivial matter, it really is not. Iranians take pride in their culture whereas Arabs don’t really like Iran particularly. The result is that while Iran, and most of the rest of the world, calls the region the Persian Gulf, Arabs like to call it the Arabian Gulf.

Now, with Google having removed the tag of ‘Persian Gulf’ from the water body in its maps, Iran is naturally concerned that perhaps this has been done to replace the name with some other name, which will naturally be unacceptable for Iran.

However, this may not necessarily be an intentional move by Google. In the past, Google has been known to run into technical errors in its maps, which were then fixed as soon as they were discovered. This may be yet another case, though Google hasn’t fixed the map yet or issued an official statement on this account.

Iranian government, on the other hand, seems to be threatening the social network to take appropriate measures to correct this error or else it could face ‘serious damages.’
