NEW DELHI: E-commerce giant Amazon has landed in soup for allegedly hurting ‘Hindu sentiments’. A complaint has been filed with the police after its put rugs and toilet seat covers with pictures of Hindu gods were available for sale on its US website.

Earlier, thousands of Twitter users backed a call for a boycott of the U.S. retailer, making #BoycottAmazon India’s top trending topic on Twitter.

Amazon spokesperson said the products in question are being removed from the store.

A complaint was made at the Sector 58 police station for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, the police said.
