‘Boycott Amazon’ Trends as Twitter Outraged Over ‘Obscene’ Radha-Krishna Painting

As soon as the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti announced on Friday that Amazon was selling ‘obscene’ paintings of Radha-Krishna, the hashtag “boycott Amazon” began to trend on Twitter.

The organisation claimed that a document urging action against the e-commerce behemoth was delivered to the Subramanya Nagar police station in Bengaluru. According to the organisation, the painting was also included as part of the Janmashtami sale on Exotic India’s website. August 18 and 19 were designated as Janmashtami.

The Hindu organisation then asserted that after the commotion, the painting was ‘quietly’ removed from the places. “But this is insufficient. Exotic India and Amazon must unconditionally apologise to Hindus and make a commitment never to damage their feelings again “Tweeted it.

“Unreliable Amazon is continually disrespecting India’s national, religious, and deity symbols and deities! India must adopt a combative attitude in order to prevent @amazonIN from engaging in such actions! “a leader of the Hindu Janajagruti tweeted.

Regarding the scandal, Amazon has not yet released a statement.

Amazon has faced criticism before for supposedly “hurting” Indian sentiment on many occasions. 2019 saw the filing of a lawsuit against it for selling Hindu god-themed rugs and toilet seat coverings on its US website. It received flak last year for selling bikinis on the Canada website in the colours of the Karnataka flag and insignia.
