If you are looking for a nice outfit to go with that Hitler wine, you might try the Hitler clothing store in Ahmedabad, India. The owner of the Hitler clothing store, Rajesh Shah, is under criticism for the use of the name but has said that he will not change it unless someone reimburses him for the new sign and re-branding costs. Here is the incredible part of the story, Shah says that he had no idea who Hitler was. “Hitler” is used in India to simply refer to someone who is strict.
Shah even put a swastika in the dot of the “i’ of Hitler to maximize the connection but he insists that he had no idea that Hitler killed millions. I am not sure what is more disturbing the thought of a Hitler store or a store owner who is so completely ignorant of basic history. Either way this is a man who is too moronic to be trusted with money.
Shah says that he wants 150,000 rupees ($2,700) to change “the logo, the hoarding, the business cards, the brand.” Of course, he is only likely to change it to “Goering Goods” or “Stalin Styles.”
Of course, one in four Brits do not believe Churchill existed. Still, the controversy over the stores in India is part of a broader debate over Indian school books which have been accused of downplaying the Nazi crimes.
