This is not the first time

There are previous instances, where the Amazon has listed a lot of products, which trigger certain people. Now, these products are definitely hurting India's sentiments.


Do note that, these products have been listed by a third party seller, as Amazon is an open market place, and almost anyone can sell almost any product. Amazon usually monitors these items, and sometimes, some of the products do miss out.

Amazon is most likely to de-list these products in the coming days, as India is a significant market place for Amazon by Jef Bezos. What do you think about this? Can Amazon sell products that de-values India's beliefs or it is a huge offence? Share your view in the comment below
