Google shows Pakistan flag when searched for 'Toilet Paper'
Google has been showing Pakistani flag when searched for the "best toilet paper in the world", the "best China-made toilet paper" or just "toilet paper".

The glitch on Google Search results was noticed a couple of days after the February 14 terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district that left 49 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel dead.

The ghastly attack has drawn criticism from various quarters, with many people holding several protests and candlelight marches across the country. Several countries from across the world including US, Russia, China have come out in support of India and called for isolating Pakistan.

Screenshots of the search results have gone viral as memes, posts and status updates on several social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Apart from images of the Pakistan flags, a search for toilet paper-related queries on Google results into a number of media reports that have been circulating around the subject.

A query to Google about whether the glitch has been taken care of or not went unanswered.

Google algorithms have often displayed inappropriate search results on certain topics.

The is not the first time when Google is showing irrelevant images. The search engine often leaves netizens baffled by throwing up some unusual and weird search results. Last year, on searching words like 'Pappu' and 'Idiot' led users to images of Congress President Rahul Gandhi and US President Donald Trump, respectively.
