The Sikh Coalition said in a statement Tuesday that it was alerted to products such as door mats, rugs and toilet seat covers with the image of one the most historically significant Sikh sites, the Golden Temple, were being sold by some sellers on Amazon.

The civil and legal rights organisation said that in the hours since, through community outreach, several pages have been removed from the website. The products seem to have been removed from Amazon's website as a message that "Sorry, we couldn't find that page" appears when running a search for the items.

Not just doormat, Amazon has Indian flag on shoes, laces too

Meanwhile, Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) on Wednesday had sent a legal notice to Amazon for using pictures of Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple) at toilet seat and door mat.

SGPC also condemned Amazon for attempting to hurt the sentiments of the Sikh sangat and asked Amazon to tender an unconditional apology, otherwise SGPC will initiate further legal action against them.
