Hitler clothing store causes stir in India
A clothing store called ‘Hitler’ has upset residents and the small Jewish community in Vastrapur, in Ahmedabad, India. The shop owners do not find the name objectionable.
“Hitler was a nickname given to my business partner Manish Chandani’s grandfather because of his strict nature. Frankly, till the time we applied for the trademark permission, I had only heard that Hitler was a strict man,” Rajesh Shah, the co-owner of the shop told Times Of India. “It was only recently that we read about Hitler on the internet.”
“We had put up a cloth banner for over a month saying ‘Hitler opening shortly’, no one objected to the name then.” (SAM PANTHAKY/AFP/GettyImages)
