The edition features a story on Besos' expansion in India, titled 'Amazon invades India'.

The cover of the magazine got social media Twitter busy with people lambasting the magazine in strong words.

Fortune Editor-In-Chief Alan Murray apologised instantly and said, "Apologies to those offended.

Inappropriate usage of Hinduism concepts and symbols for pushing selfish agenda or mercantile greed was not okay."
