New Delhi, Nov 13: Fashion retailer Myntra has come under attack for selling cow leather shoes on its site.
A Twitter handle affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) hit out at Myntra and tweeted that the government should take action against it.
Responding to the statements, Myntra tweeted from its official handle: "The product in question is an imported product and/or made from imported leather. The sale of leather products is not illegal in India. Please be assured that we function within legally permissible norms."
However the RSS affiliated handle continued its allegation and demanded that Myntra pulls down cow leather shoes from its site.
This however, is not the official handle of the RSS.
India is witnessing rising cases of intolerance in the past few months. Several incidents revolving around banning of beef have come to light.
