Hyderabad: Not just makers of the Indian flag, businesses are also cashing in on the NRC-CAA protests. Some sellers on e-commerce giant Amazon have listed two kinds of t-shirts, one supporting NRC-CAA, and other other against.

As of January 24, there are at least two sellers trying to cash in on the protests. In an attempt to appeal to people on both sides of the argument, these sellers are offering two t-shirts, with the exact fonts and words — “CAA, NRC, NPR”. One t-shirt has these words crossed in red, while the other has a green tick mark.

 

Interestingly, one of the two sellers, Photo Basics, has chosen to list its shirts as “generic”. Users wouldn’t know Photo Basic’s name unless they try to add a shirt to their cart.

The other seller, My Print Shop, has taken no such precautions.

Needless to say, the listings on the website haven’t gone unnoticed.

Multiple Twitter users have posted negative posts against the sellers, for their “ability to monetize everything”.
