New Delhi: E-commerce website Amazon came under fire after Hindu Janajagruti Samiti filed a complaint against it in the Subramanya Nagar police station in Bengaluru on Friday.

The organization told the media that a memorandum was given to the administration with a request to take strong and quick against the multination site, accusing it of selling the ‘obscene’ painting of Lord Krishna and Radha.

Janajagruti Samiti further said that the objectionable portrait was removed ‘quietly’ following the outrage.

“Members of @HinduJagrutiOrg submitted a memorandum to the Police Inspector, Subramanya Nagar Benguluru, requesting action against @amazonIN for selling obscene painting of Lord Krishna with Radha on their website”, the group informed via Twitter.

The uproar began when the painting being sold by Exotic India appeared in searches under the Janmashtami sale on August 18 and 19 on the e-commerce giant.

Exotic India is said to have removed the painting in question from the portal after massive outrage from all direction. Though, the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and Netizens’ ire doesn’t seem to go down too soon as they demanded strong action against the company and the platform for hurting the sentiments of Hindu community.

“But this (removal of painting) is not enough. Both Amazon and Exotic India must tender unconditional apology and pledge not to hurt sentiments of Hindus ever again”, the organization said in a later tweet.

Twitteratis have also been trending ‘Boycott Amazon’ trend on the microblogging site Twitter since Friday morning.
