Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Why didn't the disputed border that crossing the Indian-called "Arunachal Pradesh" be shown on the map? When I went to the edit page I can see the disputed line that China claims but when I quit I can't see it.

There have been many discussions about disputed borders over the years, one of which resulted in the official position here.

There have been many discussions about how to store conflicting claims and while several competing claims may be stored in the database, what is normally shown on the "default" map is what is thought to be the extent of actual "on the ground" control of an area. People can and do make other renderings of the database with their preferred interpretations.
