Accordingly online retail giant Amazon has been slammed by several Sikh bodies for reportedly selling doormats, rugs and toilet accessories bearing the image of the highly revered Golden Temple and was asked to immediately remove the "disrespectful products" that hurt the sentiments of the community worldwide. Meanwhile the Sikh Coalition, said in a statement that it was alerted to Amazon selling doormats, rugs and toilet seat covers with the image of Golden Temple.



Furthermore in response, the civil rights organization said it "immediately contacted Amazon to remove the products while detailing the culturally insensitive problems with the items being sold and the offensive message it sent to Sikhs around the world". It tweeted "The Golden Temple is not a doormat", adding that in the hours since, through community outreach, several pages had been removed from the Amazon portal.

Moreover another group, NGO United Sikhs, issued a statement calling on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to do the same and said it had received "numerous complaints" from members of the community about the products. Further the group offered "Sikh awareness training" in "an effort to educate Amazon's staff and prevent anti-Sikh products from being sold on the site in the future". Finally it also "reached out to the manufacturers of the merchandise to demand their production to be ceased immediately".
