Posting of Archana Sharma's article: Meet the Hitlers of Mumbai - originally published in The Times of India, would appear to be an attempt to dilute the charge of Nazification of extremist Hindutva organisations, the RSS, BJP, VHP and Bajrang Dal by including account of some Muslims from earlier generations that named their sons as Hitler.

The logic of all such preference for Hitler was very obvious and very justifiable. British had colonized India. As Hitler was fighting British, people in India were fascinated by Hitler's successes and lionized him as a public figure --- enemy of enemy being a friend, an old logic.

Jews and Holocaust till that time had no public exposure that they acquired after the WWII. If the Allied powers were not aware of Holocaust at that time, how can a distant Muslim community in India be so informed of the secret criminalised acts of genocide by Hitler. It is another matter that Israeli atrocities has drastically changed the perception of Jews as victims to Jews, as the aggressors.

Still, there is no record of any Muslim organization being formed in India, on the political philosophy of fascism, as is the case with RSS.

RSS founder traveled to Europe to meet up with Mussolini and get his full support for their deliberate and preferred choice of fascism as the cornerstone of their extremist racist fundamentals of Hindutva --- the political Hinduism --- a sad and pathetic distortion of a non-political peaceful religious set of beliefs, more concerned with the spiritual than the material world.

The extremist RSS has still not revised or deleted or abandoned either its founders racist fundamentals or its choice of Muslims as the 'other', even though Indian people as a whole have given clear and repeated electoral verdict against their extremist doctrines. The stranglehold of old guards in RSS is so strong that any mention of ‘opportunistic revision' is enough for even the stalwarts from top ranks to be publicly humiliated and sidelined.
