rescind(動詞)取消;撤回

Online retail giant Amazon was found to be selling doormats featuring the Indian flag, which triggered fury among the Indians. Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted that Amazon should issue an “unconditional apology” and withdraw the “insulting” product in no time. She also suggested that India rescind current visas for Amazon officials and not grant any more if they failed to do so.

網購零售業龍頭「亞馬遜」日前因販售一款印度國旗圖案的地墊,而惹毛印度人。印度外交部長Sushma Swaraj在推特上強力譴責,要求亞馬遜道歉並立刻撤下相關產品。她甚至建議印度政府註銷印度亞馬遜公司員工的簽證,並永不再核發,如果他們未能做到道歉及下架的話。

desecration(名詞)褻瀆神聖;污辱

In India, desecration of the flag is punishable with fines and imprisonment. Similar controversy over sales of doormats illustrating Hindu gods was found on Amazon website last June. Amazon said it had removed the doormats from its site on January 11.

在印度,褻瀆國旗是可罰鍰及入獄的。同樣的爭議去年六月也發生過,那次是在地墊上印製印度的神像。亞馬遜已將商品於11日全數下架。
