Amazon does it again, toilet seats and bathroom mats with Hindu Gods sold on the site trigger call for #BoycottAmazon

This is not the first time when Amazon has shown tolerance for insulting Hindus through the sale of such products. Earlier in 2016, the e-commerce giant faced a similar ire for selling doormats with Hindu Gods on them.

Amazon seems to be well versed with the patience and tolerance of Hindus as time and again it allows the sale of products with pictures that are offensive and hurtful to the religious beliefs of Hindus across the globe. A similar incidence has again come to light where products that insult Hindu Gods are being sold on the e-retail platform. In response, Twitterati has started a campaign to #BoycottAmazon demanding that e-commerce website remove the offensive products immediately from its website.

As per the report published, the campaign gained momentum when popular Twitter user Anshul Saxena brought this to the notice. Soon after, the social media went abuzz with calls to boycott Amazon from Indians through the world. Saxena posted a few pictures of toilet seats that had Hindu deities on top of its covers. These offensive products are, however, not for sale in India.

This is not the first time when Amazon has shown tolerance for insulting Hindus through the sale of such products. Earlier in 2016, the e-commerce giant faced a similar ire for selling doormats with Hindu Gods on them.

The insult isn’t however, limited to Amazon. In November last year, Indian-American woman Ankita Misha had highlighted the walls of House of Yes, a New York-based pub that had images of Hindu gods splashed all over.

The indifferent attitude of Amazon has been called out but what needs to be seen is, if the e-commerce takes serious cues from the boycott call this time to prevent further embarrassment.

At the time of publishing this story, the items have been removed from the platform.
