Flipkart Selling swords

Some months back I raised the issue about snapdeal selling swords and I thought consumer ministry took note of it. Here we go now flipkart is not able to figure out what sellers are selling on their platform. If regulations are not there soon people will be selling drugs on there...

I was surprised to see various types of swords, daggers, etc are being openly sold in several shops in Puskar, Rajasthan. more  
Such items must be banned from selling online. more  
Snapdeal selling swords and flipkart is also doing the same. A day may come that bombs are also sold through the ecommerce sites. more  
It is the tragedy & ill luck of this country that the advocates are always found ready to defend the wrong doers & anti-socials on fulfilling their hunger for money. Even advocate like Kapil Sibbal is no different, whose majority of clients are charged with serious criminal offences and anti-national activities but are capable to meet his demand for fees runs in lacs of rupees per sitting.

Government should look into the incident promptly and stringent action be initiated against the supplier and those placed the orders. more  
This issue was discussed on Mirror Now's - The Last Word. No doubt our country laws need a total revamp as the Laws being governed and followed are all archaic & outdated. Sikhs carry Kirpans, Gorkha's carry Khukri & Hindu's might want to carry Trishul to flaunt their religious identities. In all these cases Indians are last...it is my religion and my belief's first..country comes last. Strangely the panelists in yeserday's discussion: Vinit Goel (BJP), Khemka (HC Sr.Advocate), a Congress spokesperson, Mr.Vikram Singh( former DGP of U.P.) & Ramakant Gaur ( SC Advocate)...while the news showed how Flipkart flagrantly violated the safety guidelines selling Swords, Daggers, Khukri's & Rampuri Knives...I was surprised to hear arguments of SC Advocate Mr.Gaur who was sort of defending Flipkart & Online portals that these items could be of Kitchen Appliances - Cleavers, Buther's knife (for cutting fish & beef)...he also went on to the extent of defending Flipkart saying: it was flipkart who tipped off the police about Orders for Sword (26 no's.) by some customers...if so..why did the police arrest the Branch Manager of Flipkart's Godown in Aurangabad...and how could Flipkart justify stocking these armaments when there was a riot and still simmering discontent and undercurrent of another riot? Apparently Mr.Gaur could well be representing his client Flipkart so the defense on National Channel debate...however don't the SC Advocate's have a conscience? Aren't they backing rioteers? more
