Amazon sells T-shirts featuring the Indian National Flag. Even before this, Amazon has insulted Indian tricolour by selling footwear, toilet seat covers, masks, and other items with the imprinted tricolour.
Previously, Amazon sold doormats with images of Hindu deities on their website in the United States, upsetting Indians to such an extent that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had issued a strong warning and urged to apologise.
Dear @AmazonIN This and other such dresses violates the sections of the Flag Code of India, 2002. We demand that you immediately take down the offending items and stop hosting such items on your online store.https://t.co/A8lsVqGo0Qhttps://t.co/K6waBo56FR@HMOIndia pic.twitter.com/pWU81dPxDL

Despite respectfully demanding the removal of outfits that violated sections of the Flag Code of India, 2002, @AmazonIN has taken no action.

The tricolour is the national flag. The guidelines governing its use have also been established. If the regulations are obeyed, it is considered an offence and can result in jail for three years or a combination of fine and imprisonment.
A shirt is placed anywhere, it becomes dirty, and stains can also be found on it. In this way, a shirt that has the tricolour imprinted insults the tricolour.
When the nationalists came to know about such incidents, there was a protest launched against Amazon. Through Twitter, people were tweeting and demanding the removal of such products.
