Sometimes, Positive Protest Works
The Mumbai, India Restaurant's, "Hitler's Cross", has decided to not only take down the poster of Hitler from the road outside the Restaurant, but it will also change its name. After consistent and hard pressure from the small Jewish community in india, and the German and Israeli governments, the owner of the controversial restaurant have decided to comply with their wishes.
"We acknowledge that the name adopted by us for our restaurant was most inappropriate," Satish Sabhlok, one of the owners of the multi-cuisine restaurant, said in a statement.
"Our intention was not to glorify Hitler or his atrocities or ideology in any way and we regret the anguish caused by the use of this name."
No word yet on what the new name of the restaurant will be. One thing is certain. The owner got just as much, if not more, attention as he wanted with this whole ordeal.
