There have been many historical studies of Adolf Hitler but none which came even close to the views of university students in India who have concluded after reading Mein Kampf that is really is a book which explores business strategies. Somehow, lost in their reading was any connection to the anti-Semitic ranting of Hitler or his desire to wreck vengeance on people or his desire to kill and destroy. According to Indian publishers, “the initial print run of 2,000 copies in 2003 sold out immediately and we knew we had a best seller on our hands.” University students are the ones who believe this man of evil is somehow a financial or business genius.
Mein Kampf is still a best seller in nations like Turkey where it sold 100,000 copies in the first six months of 2005. It sells thousands of copies in Muslim nations, but the reason for its success in India is truly baffling. Anyone who can explain it?
