  • Swaraj’s stern warning was response to a tweet sent to her by one Atul Bhobe, with a screenshot of the page listing the products.
  • “Madam. Amazon Canada must be censured and warned not to sell India flag doormats. Please take action,” the tweet read.
  • Swaraj shot off a response to the Indian High Commission in Canada: “This is unacceptable. Please take this up with Amazon at the highest level.”
  • The doormats retailed on Amazon Canada sparked protests from Indians living in the country, and now there’s even an online petition on change.org.

  • Last year, the company enraged many on social media after it came to light that it was selling doormats with pictures of Indian gods and goddesses.
  • That discovery even lead to the creation of the hashtag #BoycottAmazon
  • And in 2014, the website was found selling women’s leggings with images of various Hindu gods.
