Springtime for Hitler — in India?

London’s Daily Telegraph reports:

Sales of Hitler’s Mein Kampf  “are soaring in India where business students regard the genocidal dictator as a “management guru” and consider the book to be a “management guide.”

An article in Jewish Chronicle published from London said that sales of Mein Kampf topped 10,000 in New Delhi alone in the past six months and are expected to rise further. A spokesman for Embassy Books in Mumbai who publish Mein Kampf, said people are looking at it from a business angle, especially as Hitler had such a strong influence on the world.”

“Students are told to use Mein Kampf and draw parallels with India to learn business strategies. Even for non-students Hitler’s books are popular texts and are clearly displayed in most book stores around India.”

“A business student living in Mumbai said that many people in India see Hitler as a good role model for directing a company and cite him as an inspiration in people management,” the article said.
