Why is ‘boycott Amazon’ trending on social media?

E-commerce giant Amazon arrived into the soup after Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on Wednesday presented a notice mentioning activity against Amazon India for selling an “obsecne composition of Lord Krishna with Radha” on their site.

The gathering had presented the reminder to Bengaluru’s Subramanya Nagar police headquarters.

As a component of their Janmashtami deal, the work of art was being sold at the Exotic India site. Bengaluru-based vender Inkologie was selling the painting on Amazon.

Afterward, Exotic India tweeted out a conciliatory sentiment and said, “It was brought to our notification that an improper picture was transferred on our site.

The equivalent was cut down right away. We earnestly apologize, Pls don’t #Boycott_ExoticIndia #boycott_exoticlndia… Hare Krsna [sic]”.

Answering to the tweet by Exotic India, HJS said, “Thank you for your brief activity. We value that you have erased the canvases and have released unrestricted conciliatory sentiments. We trust that you will arrange the things on your site to defend Hindu sensibilities.(sic)”


Amazon has not yet put out any announcement about the occurrence.

After the things were brought down, HJS tweeted saying that “Amazon and Exotic India should delicate unrestricted statement of regret and vow not to hurt opinions of Hindus at any point in the future.”

This isn’t whenever Amazon first has pursued a discussion for harming “strict feelings”. 

In 2019, a body of evidence was enrolled against its US site after it was found that latrine seat covers and different things with pictures of Hindu divine beings were being sold on the site.

Twitter clients had required a blacklist of the web-based business sites, with some in any event, labeling India’s then Foreign Minister late Sushma Swaraj, mentioning activity against the world’s greatest internet-based retailer.

Once more, in 2017, New Delhi took the Seattle, Washington-based organization to task after the organization’s Canadian site was spotted selling mats looking like India’s banner.

Swaraj had then taken steps to repeal visas of Amazon representatives on the off chance that the things were not eliminated or brought down from the site.
