No

Unless you think he's dumb for thinking the rest of us could be dumb enough to fall for his "I had no idea who he was until recently" line.

It's either a publicity stunt or he's just an idiot.

It means something entirely different in India

However combining it with the name Hitler makes one wonder, even for India. Good thing Hitler's name wasn't Jones or Smith.

does it matter?

Their version looked different

It was a mirror-image of the one Hitler used. The store owner also named the store "Hitler" in case you missed that.

both versions been used in India

some of the oldest ones were right facing too. Maybe it's like the Star of David. To many in the Middle East it's a hated symbol, but in the rest of the world it isn't. The problem with symbols is based on time and place they can mean different things to different people.

No, it isn't like the Star of David

Again, the store was named "Hitler."

read above

there may be something more to it. Or he may really be naive not about the history but the strength of feelings elsewhere. He may just not care. I'm wondering how those living around there feel about it?

He's not that dumb

He's willing to change provided he recovers cost of sign and adverts to the tune of 700CDN. It was Jewish locals that got to him about what it means to display the sign, yada, yada. So, maybe a reverse "crystal night" oughta teach him. -----Willy Happy

Update
'Hitler' no more: After uproar, Indian clothing store will change its name

After a global uproar, the co-owners of the "Hitler" clothing shop in western India have agreed to rename their store, the Associated Press reports.

Israel's consul general in Mumbai even asked state officials to intervene when the "Hitler" sign, complete with swastika inside the letter "I" was mounted above the store's entrance.

Co-owner Rajesh Shah claims he knew nothing of Hitler's history — people in Ahmadabad claim otherwise, saying the store name was a marketing gimmick — and that he named the shop after his business partner's disciplinarian grandfather whom the family referred to as "Hitler."
