Mistake Or Habit? Big Chunks Of India Missing From Map Of India Sold On Amazon

Published on 9 May, 2017 at 1:06 pm By

Amazon seems to be inclined towards keeping its equation bitter with the Indian Government.

In January the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj reprimanded American e-com giant Amazon for selling doormats designed as the Indian Flag.

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.

 

The complete and actual political map of India.

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

A wrong deed can be treated as a mistake once or twice but there is a threshold that must not be breached. It seems like an intentional attack or plain ignorance of religious and nationalist sentiments on the part of Amazon.
