Amway apologists claim there would be business without purchasing products

It is really wonderful and hilarious to learn there would be business without purchasing products. This is enough to assess the mental capability of these Amway apologists. The rider is if the members do not purchase products they are not entitled to claim commission. Is it not compulsion? The affidavit filed by Amway India in the Andhra Pradesh High Court claimed that the members must purchase products worth Rs. 2000 every month otherwise they are not entitled for commission.
Basing on the State Food Laboratory report, the Krishna District Consumer Forum imposed Rs one lakh fine on Amway India. Is it not enough quantifiable evidence to show the inferior quality of products?
Anyway the nitwit apologist did not say how much amount his mother is earning every month after so long in the 'Proven Business Opportunity' of Amway.
It is true no one is guilty unless it is proved otherwise in the court of law. Addressing this aspect, kindly see what the Andhra Pradesh High Court stated in this connection.
"Sri B Adinarayana (Counsel for Amway India) contended that even assuming that the police are satisfied that the petitioners (Amway India) are indulging in money circulation scheme, they cannot interfere with the business of the petitioner till the criminal court after a full fledged trial holds the petitioners guilty of the offence alleged against them. We have carefully considered this submission of the learned counsel. It is a well settled principle of criminal jurisprudence that no person shall presumed to be guilty until his guilt is proved, but we are unable to accept the broad submissions of the learned counsel for the petitioners (Amway India) that till the conclusion of the criminal case the police have no power to interfere with the business activities of the petitioners. Section 7 of Act (Prize Chits & Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978) empowers the police officer not below the rank of an officer in charge of a police station to that effect."
So the Amway India's business model is a money circulation scheme and is illegal.
