The outrage on social media started after some users shared screenshots of an objectionable painting of Lord Krishna and Radha being sold on the two platforms. The description of the painting read on Amazon, “Inkologie Hindu Gods fine art painting print posters wall decor gift, AS passion took over c.1775-1780, Gita Govinda, Radha Krishna in Forest Love Nest, 12×13 inch one pack no frame.”

Angry Hindus wasted no time calling for the boycott of the two platforms as #Boycott_Amazon became a top trend.

One user wrote, “How can amazon dare to paint such obscene pictures of श्री कृष्ण & Radha when their relationship is so sacred & sattvic? Amazon should apologize publicly for this. Care should be taken to ensure that this does not happen again in the future.”

Another wrote, “Krishna is a major deity in Hinduism.He is worshipped as d 8 avatar of Vishnu & also d Supreme god. Making such obscene paintings of lord Krishna & Radha & selling on websites is very worng & hurts d religious sentiments of crores of Hindus!”

This is not the first time that Amazon has faced criticism for hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus. The platform was accused of selling doormats with photos of Hindu deities in the past.
