4 days ago

Finally, the Amazon has dropped the Indian flag themed doormats from its website after a serious warning from the Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj. 

 

The spokesperson of Amazon said, "the item is no longer available for sale on the site."

 

 

In a series of tweets, Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said, "Indian High Commission in Canada : This is unacceptable. Please take this up with Amazon at the highest level."

 

She further tweeted, "Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately."

 

She added, "If this is not done forthwith, we will not grant Indian Visa to any Amazon official. We will also rescind the Visas issued earlier."

 

The minister responded to a tweet sent to her by a user that shows a screenshot of doormats featuring the Indian flag on sale on Amazon Canada.
