The controversy was settled by taking the product off the online platform and issuance of a formal apology as demanded by Swaraj.

Yet again Amazon is now in news for selling a vinyl wall sticker of a map of India.

The product came to light when BJP’s Delhi spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga tweeted a screenshot of the product highlighting that it did not include India’s areas illegally occupied by Pakistan and China.

The product was listed by a seller named ‘DIYthinker’ is a misrepresentation of the Indian map which can be met with stiff punishment of up to seven year jail term and a fine of Rs.100 crore. It is notable that an incorrect depiction of a country’s map is not only a crime but also a direct attack on a country’s sovereignty.

In 2016, Amazon was spotted selling doormats printed with Indian gods and goddesses. This infuriated the masses which resulted in #BoycottAmazon trending on Twitter.
