Fuhrer furor: India's Hitler eatery to change name
BOMBAY, India -- The owner of a restaurant named after Adolf Hitler said Thursday he will change its name.
Puneet Sablok said he would remove Hitler's name and the Nazi swastika from billboards and the menu. He had said the restaurant's name -- ''Hitler's Cross'' -- and symbols were only meant to attract attention.
Sablok made the decision after meeting with members of Bombay's small Jewish community.
''Once they told me how upset they were with the name, I decided to change it,'' he said. ''I don't want to do business by hurting people.''
Sablok said he had not yet decided on a new name.
Hitler's Cross opened five days ago and serves pizza, salad and pastries in Navi Mumbai, a suburb of Bombay.
