Amazon faced a social media backslash in India on Thursday (16 May) after toilet seat covers, shoes, doormats, yoga mats and other items with Hindu Gods were spotted on its US website. In 2017, Amazon Canada had such things spotted and upon threatening from External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj they had removed it.

Thousands of Twitter users backed a call for a boycott of the U.S. retailer, making #BoycottAmazon India’s top trending topic on Twitter. Some tagged Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, urging her to take action against the company.

Amazon, the world’s biggest online retailer, said it was removing the products from its online store.

Noida Police on May 17 registered a case against e-commerce giant Amazon for allegedly hurting "Hindu sentiments" after rugs and toilet seat covers with pictures of Hindu gods were available for sale on its US website.
We should punish them like EU by fining heavy amount. They must learn a lesson

Can Amazon even legally remove this products or stop sellers from selling these products? It might be offending to some religion but it's not illegal. If they remove these products. They are gonna have to completely ban religious products from their platform.

They have to do it anyway. We practice that religion and we are offended by their this act. If they want to do business in this country they have to listen to the people's complaint. They are selling US flag doormats but that's because US people are not feeling offended or complaining at large scale. Being Owner of company it comes under their rules to remove any product.
