We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Mein Kampf is a best seller. Hero Hitler in Love is a popular Punjabi comedy. And he's a ubiquitous linchpin in their ads.

Within the last two weeks, both Businessweek and The Daily Beast have featured stories on the power of the Hitler brand in India.

And here is Der Führer selling fabric softener in a 2011 ad.

Indians buy Mein Kampf by the thousands every month, and it is a must-read for business school students.

The two articles presented a few theories on why Hitler is big in India. One being that the country has never had a strong charismatic leader. Another being that Hitler's weakening of Great Britain in World War II led to them voluntarily leaving India.

One thing is for sure: No other country in the world uses Hitler as a creative ad linchpin more than India.

Multi-award-winning ad from 2008 for Luxor highlighters.
Only the important points about Hitler's life are highlighted in this passage.

It isnt anti-semitism or race hate the appeal comes from, it is Hitler's track record with corruption. He stomped corruption out very hard(you can argue aginst the methods)... but if corruption was minimized strongly in india everything else would improve greatly, from child sex exploitation and human traffiking to industry to education.

-A ten year old traffiked Nepalese girl escaped a brothel in India, it was found a police officer returned her to the matron. The kickbacks prevent effective efforts, and the thugs use violence against anyone concerned with police turning a blind eye.  Personally I see the appeal of walking into such a place with a black uniform with skulls and double tapping a few of these people.  Do it a couple dozen times and you could be assured alot of people would stop traffiking children.

"He stomped corruption out very hard (you can argue aginst the methods)"

Argue, no, be horrified, yes. How did pure corruption manage to stomp out corruption? And in what parallel universe would Hitler be used as a role model?

 

This seems unreal to me;  have they got their history books backward ?  I don't think Hitler intentionally wanted to set India free from Britain.  It seems to me that this is an anti-european and american stand.

he Last Article (1988), is an alternate history short story by Harry Turtledove. The story describes a Nazi invasion of India and the reaction of the Germans to thenonviolent resistance and pacifism of Gandhi and his followers.

[edit]Plot summary

Germany's success in World War II has led to their invasion of the British Raj, and rather than struggling for independence from the Crown, Gandhi and Nehru find themselves in the position of resisting Nazi occupation using the techniques that were successfully employed against the British. Although Nehru has a general concept of the inherent immoral nature of Nazism, Gandhi thinks they still can be persuaded, not heeding the warning from a Jew named Wiesenthal, who was able to flee Poland to India.

The Nazis, however, led by Field Marshal Walther Model, are completely unmoved by Gandhi's strategy. They view themselves as a master race and have no moral qualms about killing those who resist non-violently (or even those who do not resist at all, if they are of a certain race). In the end the movement collapses as it proves unable to deal with the savagery of Nazism.
