    Following on from the most racist countries in the world thread, I recalled over the years seeing numerous articles with regards to the popularity of Hitler in India. Some of them are listed below. This thread isn't supposed to be a generalisation about all Indians, nor should their be bigoted comments towards Indians - I just find it intriguing that a man who essentially regarded Indians and other races to be subhuman is looked upon with such admiration by a certain section of the population.

    It seems that his popularity is possibly down to ignorance, a failure to understand who he was and what his legacy is. Some people interviewed have stated that because of his use of the swastika, he is "one of us". One student said that they are taught about Hitler but things like the Holocaust are omitted. The focus is on his ability to manage effectively.

    Article describing Hitlers influence on right-wing Hindu nationalists:

    Indian children's book where Hitler is featured as one of many world leaders who have “devoted their lives for the betterment of their country and people.”

    Hitler got his occult belief from the Himalayas. The Swastikas came from Indian religions. The Nazi ideal of White Supremacy also agrees with Indians caste system. It could be why Britain could subjugate India for so long with little trouble: the Indian people thought white was superior

    Lots of evil stuff in India because of Hindusim. It’s not always the case that brown/exotic/mystic = good

    Doesn't the Swastika have Indian roots, or something?

    It should be obvious, but Indians in general are very racist and do not believe that all people or races are equal.

    Maybe the meaning behind it, but I'm pretty sure the symbol itself is exactly the same as some of the cultures that use it in a non-Nazi way.

    Now that I think of it, I believe you're right. Forgot about that little difference.

    It's a chief symbol in Jainism, which is a religion that preaches complete and utter non violation of living beings. Quite sad, when you think about how such a revered symbol was used and seen as.

    I don't think people in SA, SEA and EA give a shit about our western history. And the Fox article summed it up nicely enough "had Hitler not weakened the British Empire by the Second World War, the British would have never voluntarily left India". Also Swastia and its counterpart Svaustika are important symbols to the Indian cultures that dates back to the Vedic period, so just because we in the west vilified the symbols doesn't mean the other side of the planet follows suit. I usually stay away from South Asia, too many tribes and too many religion branches and it takes a lot of effort in order to truly understand the socioeconomic factors and historical circumstances behind the Varna and Jati systems which what average people know as 'Caste'.

    The swastika has a good version and and evil version. Hitler chose the evil version on purpose to suit his twisted goals.

    Good posts guys. I'm tragically rusty on my theological history but it's time to brush up.

    Asia, is the one continent on Earth that does not play by the rules of Globalists. They are the most racist people on the planet, statistically speaking, they do not mix with other people in terms of marriage etc.

    That's every symbol ever. Some symbols are more equal than others.

    Me neither, they have the right idea. They want Asia to be for Asians, and they are proud of it. They are preserving their people, their culture, their ideas and holding onto what is theirs by blood and soil. IF they lost a war on their front, that's on them, but for now, they stand tall and strong and I applaud them for understanding and upholding their biological imperative.
