Some say it stems from ignorance while others say it’s purely tasteless.
Height of tastelessness; Indian ice-cream named after Hitler. Would the Germans name a sausage after Godse? https://t.co/fr4KuvQ15h— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) May 29, 2015
But some just can’t help themselves!

This isn’t the first time India’s been pulled up for using Hitler as a brand name. In 2006, BBC and Reuters put out a story of a restaurant named after Hitler in Mumbai after which Israel's consul general started to receive calls from countless Jews across the world. A request was sent to the authorities of Navi Mumbai who requested the restaurant owner to change the name. The Israeli authorities said that a gimmick like this hurts the sentiments of a community and is thereby a criminal offence.
