New Delhi : It seems, e-commerce giant Amazon has come out all guns blazing against India. First, doormats of tri-colour, then dog coats on Indian emblem and now Mahatma Gandhi flip-flops. They have got all the items on their list which hurt Indian sentiments.

The Indian government has warned the e-commerce giant for hurting the sentiments and asked them to remove all items from their list.

Two days ago, India asked Amazon's Canada portal to remove the doormats depicting the Indian flag but now they have again put up another article of slippers with Mahatma Gandhi on US site.

Amazon describes the products as 'Gandhi flip flops' as a pair of "foam rubber flip flops". It costs $16.99, or about Rs 1,200.


"Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately," Swaraj had said in a tweet.
