A small group of Jews from the local synagogue visited 'Hitler' men's garment store in Vastrapur area of the city on Sunday and urged its proprietor to change the shop's name.
"It was a friendly meeting. We tried to convince Rajeshbhai (Rajesh Shah) to change the name of his store, but he refused. He, however, said he does not mind changing the Nazi Swastika on the board in front of his store to a Hindu swastika," said Menasseh Solomon, secretary of the Magen Abraham Synagogue in Ahmedabad's Khamasa neighbourhood.
"He (Rajesh) said his concept was never to hurt the community, and he feigned ignorance about Hitler... But after we left, we began to believe that he may have been aware about all this and was just pretending to be ignorant," he added.
Shah said 10 to 12 people came to his shop in the afternoon and asked him to change the name of his store.
Shah said he does not plan to change the name "because I have gone through a lot to get registration, licence and decorations".
