Amazon has invited many controversies in the past too. Remember how it’s American website had put doormats with Indian Gods printed on it on sale? Indians had slammed Amazon for insulting Gods and some had even threatened to take action. Even Sushma Swaraj has lashed out at Amazon and asked them to apologize.
After receiving a warning from Sushma Swaraj, Amazon removed that controversial product from the website. However, Amazon has once again sparked a controversy and this time, it’s through ‘Amazon China’. Amazon works on buyer-seller mode where any retailer can sign up and list their products. This time, an Indian map with half Kashmir gone has been listed on the site.
We all know that the relations of India and China are not that good; tensions are growing between both the nations and amidst this, a retailer on Amazon china has done something that has insulted Indians and has made them furious.
Well, it is selling Indian maps with half Kashmir gone. Kashmir has been a disputed part and there have been many controversies between India and Pakistan for the same.
Have a look at this watercolor map canvas art print.
Here is the original map:
This hasn’t gone down well with Indians. Many took to Twitter to slam this listing. Check out some tweets..
We should sell China map without Tibet !!
