APOLOGIZE OR NO VISA: SUSHMA SWARAJ TO AMAZON FOR FLAG DOORMATS
The controversy erupted when Amazon Canada started selling Doormat with Indian Flag printed on it on their website.
It was not appreciated when the Sale offer caught the attention of the Indian masses, the people on Twitter started lashing out to Amazon for insulting Indian National Flag.
This fateful news reached our External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and it did not go well with her too. She tweeted “Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately,” she went on saying “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 also contacted Officials in Canada for the misconduct done by the Amazon and tweeted “Indian High Commission in Canada : This is unacceptable. Please take this up with Amazon at the highest level.”
Amazon then removed the sale offer in which Doormat with Indian National flag was listed. So in response to the flak faced by the Amazon a spokeswoman for Amazon said in an email “The item is no longer available for sale on the site,”.
Disrespect to the national flag is a punishable offense in India. It involves a three-year jail term and a fine or both.
Sushma Swaraj is know for her Quick and helpful responses on Twitter, she is also admired for the Speedy Redressal she provides to the Indian people facing any problem in abroad.
