Shantikanta Das, the secretary of the Department of Economic Affairs in a tweet, warned Amazon about the use of Indian icons in their products. He wrote, "Amazon,better behave. Desist from being flippant about Indian symbols & icons. Indifference will be at your own peril."
He later said that the tweet was 'as as a citizen of India; nothing more should be read into it'.
Earlier, after facing flak for selling doormats with the image of the Indian Tricolour, the e-commerce giant was once again in the firing line for selling chappals with the image of Mahatma Gandhi.
