WASHINGTON/OTTAWA: Soon
after India threatened of not
granting Indian Visa to any
Amazon official if the company
did not withdraw an Indian flag-
themed doormat from its
Canadian platform, the e-
commerce website removed
the article from the online
marketplace.
A spokesman for Amazon based
at its headquarters in Seattle
contacted The Washington Post
to say that the doormat was no
longer for sale on its website.
External Affairs Minister
Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday
said Amazon must tender an
unconditional apology and
withdraw all products insulting
the Tricolour, otherwise no
Amazon official will get an
Indian visa.
"Amazon must tender
unconditional apology. They
must withdraw all products
insulting our national flag
immediately," the External
Affairs Minister said in a tweet.
"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 said.
If this is not done forthwith, we
will not grant Indian Visa to any
Amazon official. We will also
rescind the Visas issued earlier.
Doormats featuring the
Indian flag were made available
on Amazon Canada site by two
vendors -- Mayers Flag Doormats
and XLYL.
An image of the products was
tweeted to the Minister, after
which she asked the Indian High
Commission in Canada to raise
the issue with Amazon.
"Indian High Commission in
Canada: This is unacceptable.
Please take this up with Amazon
at the highest level," the
Minister tweeted.
