Sushma Swaraj asks ‘unconditional apology’ from Amazon for insulting national flag

Sushma Swaraj asks ‘unconditional apology’ from Amazon for insulting national flag

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday asked ‘unconditional apology’ from the e-retailer giant Amazon for selling doormats depicting Indian flag.

The Minister’s reaction comes after a twitter user brought Swaraj’s attention that Amazon Canada was selling doormats featuring the Indian flag. Some media reports also verified the claim of the user.

“Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately,” Swaraj tweeted.”If this is not done forthwith, we will not grant Indian Visa to any Amazon official. We will also rescind the Visas issued earlier,” she added.

Sushma also asked the Indian High Commission in Canada to take up the matter with Amazon. “Indian High Commission in Canada: This is unacceptable. Please take this up with Amazon at the highest level,” she tweeted.
