Open letter to MLBD about their publishing Mein Kampf

Update, 21 May 2014
Motilal Banarsidass responded graciously, rapidly and positively to this letter and the petition, and agreed to stop distributing the book.

And if you wish to participate, here is a 
asking them to cease publishing Mein Kampf.

Background reading: "The Paradox of the Popularity of Hitler in India" by Navras Jaat Aafreedi (Asian Jewish Life, issue 14, 2014, pp. 14--16).

  2. Thank you Dominik for speaking up against this seemingly innocent move from MLBD.
    As Indologist, but even more as a human being, I condone this decision and support your letter fully.
