Hitler store in India asked to change name

    Members of the Jewish community in Ahmedebad in the west of India have asked the owner of a shop called Hitler to change its name.

    The proprietor Rajesh Shah said he intended no offence: “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,” the Times of India reported.

    Members of the local Magen Abraham synagogue went to meet Mr Shah on Sunday to ask him to change the name. Mr Shah has refused, saying he has spent a lot of money on branding, from registering the business to printing business cards, but would change it if compensated.

    The secretary of the synagogue told the India Express that Mr Shah had agreed to change the swastiska on the board in front of his shop to a Hindu swastika.
