Amazon takes down products with Hindu symbols after threaten to boycott

In a recent statement, e-commerce site Amazon said that it will be taking down listings of its products featuring Hindu sacred symbols after backlash from netizens, who started the #BoycottAmazon trend on Twitter. Some of these products included briefs and shorts with Lord Ganesha's image printed on it. Doormats with the image of 'om' were also being sold.

"We are taking down the products in question. All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action including potential removal of their account," the website was quoted as saying by businessstandard.com.
