A clothing outlet named 'Hitler' located in Ahmedabad, India has upset the local Jewish population, according to a report Monday by The Times of India.

According to the Times, Hitler was the nickname given to the grandfather of shop owner Rajeh Shah's business partner due to his strict nature.

In response to opposition to the store name, Shah, who claimed that it was "only recently that we read about Hitler on the internet," offered to remove the banner, but only if he is compensated for the costs thus far incurred.

A member of the local Jewish community alleged to the Times that "the proprietors knew what the name meant and what Hitler stood for." She claimed that a different name had been suggested, but that the proprietors said that 'Hitler' brings in good business.
