Fury over India flag doormats for sale on Amazon

Thursday, 12 January 2017 - 6:52

India's foreign minister has criticised online retail giant Amazon after its Canadian website was found to be selling doormats featuring the Indian flag.

Sushma Swaraj tweeted that Amazon should issue an "unconditional apology" and withdraw the "insulting" products.

Failing this, she said India would rescind current visas for Amazon officials and not grant any more.

Amazon said it had removed the doormats from its site.
