A home furnishing company has outraged India's Jewish community with a new line of bedspreads called "The Nazi Collection" and its use of swastikas in its promotional material, local media reported Sunday. The furnishing dealer said the name stands for "New Arrival Zone for India" and was not meant to be anti-Semitic, according to the Times of India. But Jewish groups were furious and are considering filing a lawsuit against the furnishing dealer, Kapil Kumar Todi. "We Jews believe that the best part of living in India is that it is a country that has never ridiculed us or harmed us," Jonathan Solomon, chairman of the Indian Jewish Federation, told the newspaper. There are about 5,500 Jews living in India, a predominantly Hindu nation of 1.1 billion people.
