New Delhi: In a series of tweets, external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said that visas of Amazon officials would be canceled, after Amazon Canada was found to be selling doormats featuring the Indian flag.
"Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately," the minister 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," she added.
Earlier in the day, Atul Bhobe, a Twitter user, brought to Sushma's attention that Amazon Canada was selling doormats featuring the Indian flag.
The union minister also instructed the Indian High Commission in Canada to take up the matter with Amazon.
