BREAKING! Sushma Swaraj tears into Amazon, warns them of severe action for selling Indian Flag door mats!

Sushma Swaraj warns Amazon ! Shows Amazon who’s the boss!

Sushma Swaraj, Minister for External Affairs has asked Amazon to either tender an unconditional apology or face the consequences after it was found by the minister that Amazon Canada was selling doormat with Indian tri-color imprinted on it. Sushma Swaraj has made it absolutely clear to Amazon and to the rest of the world that if they try to ridicule India or be little our culture they will have to face tough consequences.

Mrs. Swaraj in a series of tweets has asked Amazon to tender an unconditional apology for the grave mistake committed by it and also withdraw all the product which insult India’s National Flag. She also added that if Amazon fails to follow the orders of the Indian Government no new visas will be issued to the officials of Amazon and also the existing visas of the officials of Amazon will be withdrawn immediately. Sushma Swaraj has sent the following response to Indian High Commission in Canada: This is unacceptable. Please take up the issue with Amazon at the highest level at the earliest.

This response from Mrs. Sushma came after she learnt about Amazon selling doormat depicting Indian Tri-color. Mr. Atul Bhobe had tweeted to MEA regarding the issue along with the screenshot of the page which was displaying the doormat. The tweet from Mr. Bhobhe read, “Madam. Amazon Canada must be censured and warned not to sell India flag doormats. Please take action,”

Sushma Swaraj has made us all proud by raising the voice against insult to our national symbol. We also remember that Amazon has been indulging in wrongdoing from a long time and has hurted the feelings of Indians quite a few times by now. Earlier Amazon was found to be doormats with pictures of Indian Gods and Goddesses depicted on it and also selling women’s leggings with the pictures of various Hindu Gods on it, the issue went to such an extent that there was a social media campaign to stop people from buying product on Amazon. The social media campaign #BoycottAmazon was viral for a long time and only came to a halt after officials of Amazon apologized for their senseless act.

Sushma Swaraj by taking immediate and stern action against Amazon for its wrong doing has proved that she’s using the social media not only to help the Indians abroad with regards to problem with their respective governments but also to take a tough stand against all those who try to insult the national symbols of our country. It is truly a matter of pride that we Indians have chosen a government and have a minister who always speak in one voice when it comes to national interest.
