From The Scotsman newspaper,22nd August, 2006:
“A NEW restaurant in India’s financial hub, named after Adolf Hitler and promoted with posters featuring the Nazi leader and swastikas, has infuriated the country’s small Jewish community.
“We are not promoting Hitler. But we want to tell people we are different in the way he was different,” Punit Shablok said.
Posters featuring a red swastika carved in the name of the eatery line the road leading up to the restaurant.
A huge portrait of a stern-looking Führer greets visitors at the door and the interior is done out in the Nazi colours of red, white and black. The restaurant also has a lounge for smoking the exotic Indian water pipe or ‘hookah’.”
