NEW DELHI, Jan 11 (ET) : External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today asked Amazon to tender an unconditional apology for insulting the Indian flag, warning that the government will not grant visa to any Amazon official in case the demand is not met.
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.
"Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately," said the minister who is undergoing treatment at AIIMS.
"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.
