Again, the minister has fulfilled a bigger duty by maintaining the decorum of Indian flag. On Wednesday, it was brought to the notice of external affair minister that doormats with Indian flags are being sold on Amazon Canada website. Post this, the minister took an immediate notice and tweeted, “Indian High Commission in Canada: This is unacceptable. Please take this up with Amazon at the highest level”.
She continued with tweeting, “Amazon must tender unconditional apology. They must withdraw all products insulting our national flag immediately”.
There are innumerable designs of such doormats made available by the manufacturer which are listed on the website. The product has been described like, “personalized durable machine-washable indoor/outdoor door mat with durable heat-resistant non-woven fabric top, sized in 23.6"(L) x 15.7"(W). Dry wet feet, grab dirt, dust and grime".
The comment section is full of complaints from angry Indians from across the world.
One of the comment said, “A lot of people have lost their lives fighting for my country's flag. There are other countries flags that are also used as a doormat and I'm surprised to see no one reacting to that. I'm proud Indian and this is an insult to my country and all the soldiers that fight for my country. Please don't be ignorant. Take it down ASAP!”.
