Customer orders Bhagwat Puran and also receives an additional book ‘how irrelevant is Bhagwat Puran’ as a ‘special gift’ from Amazon seller

  • In the past, the instances of Amazon selling footwear, inner garments depicting the pictures of Hindu Deities had taken place and later, withdrawn after Hindus had protested. Still, the hatred of Hindus by Amazon continues to be practised. Therefore, Hindus should oppose this attitude by legal means.
  • The Central Government should also take cognisance of such incidents and take action against Amazon.

New Delhi – An Amazon user ‘Anji’ has alleged that a seller-Vishv Books, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, has been fuelling anti-Hindu sentiments by sending a copy of a book denigrating the ordered Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran as a “special gift” along with the Holy Scripture. Along with the ‘Shrimad Bhagwad Mahapuran’, a copy of “How irrelevant is Bhagwat Puran” marked as a “special gift” was also sent by the seller. The user has stated that the book packaged as “special gift” by the seller was a book written to denigrate the Bhagwad Puran and was meant to discourage the buyers from reading the Hindu Holy text Bhagwad Puran.

This is not a one-off occurrence of the seller sending a book mocking the Hindu faith and its scriptures. The customer ‘Satyam S’ shared that he had raised his grievances against the aforesaid seller for sending a book that denigrated the Hindu scripture and which served to spread negativity about the faith and the Holy Text – Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran.


Earlier in 2017, netizens were shocked when a Twitter user had shared that Amazon India has sent her a copy of the Bible even when she had not ordered it from the online marketplace. The user, Yogini Deshpande, claimed that she had ordered a JNU book on Amazon India. But, instead of her ordered book, she received a copy of the Bible.
