In the past, Amazon has sold footwear, inner garments depicting Hindu Deities and later withdrawn after Hindus protested. Yet, the Hindu-hatred of Amazon continues. Therefore, Hindus must oppose this attitude by legal means.
The Central Government should also take cognizance of such incidents and take action against Amazon.
New Delhi – Amazon user Anji has alleged that a seller – Vishv Books, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, has been fuelling anti-Hindu sentiments by sending a book denigrating Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran.

Along with the ‘Shrimad Bhagwat 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’ is a book written to denigrate Bhagwat Puran and meant to discourage buyers from reading the Hindu Scripture.
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 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.
