A clothing outlet named "Hitler" located in Ahmedabad, India, has decided to drop the name after pressure from both the local and international community, according to a report Monday by The Times of India.

According to The Times, Orna Sagiv, consul general of Israel at Mumbai, had met senior state government officials on Monday and impressed upon them that the shop's name has upset Jewish community, both in India and around the world. She said she had received complaints from Israel and abroad.

The clothing outlet has generated much controversy after it was opened in August. According to the show owners, Hitler was the nickname given to the grandfather of shop owner Rajeh Shah's business partner due to his strict nature.
