Eh, the ignorance of the uneducated masses frequently knows no bounds, particularly when it comes to history in a faraway part of the world. Most Afghanis have no idea why there are U.S. troops in their country.


I have no idea why there are U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Other than the poppy trade.

geoduck42: The store-owner is quoted as claiming that he didn't know who Hitler was, and got the idea from a family nickname. This is India and not Europe or the US, but still.. if he's telling the truth.. wow.



It is believable. A lot of non-western nations were relatively untouched by WW II culturally speaking. As a result, Hitler and the Nazis are viewed more as historical figures rather than monsters.

But we have our own equivalent:

Genghis Khan was the Hitler of his time with Mongol conquests killing some 30-60 million people.

Indian troops fought in Europe. I have a hard time believing that he did not know. That swastika dotting the letter "I" gives it away, don't ya think?

He's lying like a rug.

Plus, my grandmother had nothing but the utmost respect for the Jewish community. When I was a kid she told me to always treat the Jewish kids with the utmost respect, or they'd put the sheni curse on me.

Isn't that every empire that existed anywhere on the planet?

HoratioGates: 6 million is just the number of Jews killed in the concentration camps. Total concentration camp deaths were between 11 and 17 million people. The war killed over 60 million people, over 2.5% of the world population. The Soviets lost 23 million people (most of them while fighting against the Nazi's although a small number would have been killed while allied with Germany). Even if you disregard all Germans killed fighting for the Nazis as Nazis who deserved to to die (which counts children soldiers in the mix) the Axis killed 30 million people IN EUROPE ALONE!


And Stalin killed 20 million in RUSSIA ALONE all by himself, what' s your point?

Not all German soldiers deserved to die; hell, ANY soldier in ANY conflict doesn't deserve to die any more than any civilian in any conflict. It's the nature of conflict. There are no "bad" wars or "good" wars. In all wars, lots of people die, and people do their memories a great disservice, imo, by trying to say that somehow the dead killed by Nazis merit more sympathy than the Nazis killed by Soviets.

I always find it weird that people will get outraged over wearing one mass murderer's image on a T-shirt

But think it's cool and trendy to wear another mass murderer's image on a T-shirt.

What's the criteria for determining which mass murderers are fashion safe and which ones aren't?

The most amazing thing about the story was that some Jews in India complained.

They are freakin' everywhere and invading other countries and imposing on their cultures! Bunch of Nazis!

Shah insisted that until the store opened he did not know who Adolf Hitler was and that Hitler was a nickname given to the grandfather of his store partner because "he was very strict".

"I didn't know how much the name would disturb people," he told AFP by telephone from Ahmedabad. "It was only when the store opened I learnt Hitler had killed six million people."



Looks like you've got a bit more reading to do...
