If you think the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler has nothing to do with ice-creams, you’re wrong. Photographs of an ice-cream cone manufactured in Uttar Pradesh and named ‘Hitler’ have been doing the rounds on social media, with the brand drawing severe flak from across the world. Media reports said the news had outraged many in Germany.
The brand’s cartons were adorned with a photo of a stern-looking Hitler dressed in a brown blazer and a cartoon of the Fuhrer doffing his hat. Attaching the viral photos, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor tweeted, “Height of tastelessness; Indian ice-cream named after Hitler. Would the Germans name a sausage after Godse?”
Is such a product actually sold commercially for profit in India, or is this merely a joke/hoax/photoshop?
