Apologise Or No Indian Visas: Sushma Swaraj Warns Amazon After Tricolour Doormats

Taking strong exception to Amazon Canada selling doormats depicting Indian flag, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday asked the e-retailer to withdraw the products and tender an unconditional apology, failing which no official of Amazon will be granted Indian visa and the ones issued earlier will also be rescinded.

The minister also asked the Indian Embassy to take up the matter with Amazon Canada.

The original tweet which prompted Swaraj’s reaction was posted by a user with the twitter handle @AtulBhobe, who also posted a screenshot of the products.
