I am facing issue with the VPN IPSEC tunnel as my remote subnet of two different customers has route conflict.
As you all know, the customers never accept changes at their end which is an unwritten rule, so I have tried the below options to make it work but no luck.
But, nothing worked, still I am facing the same issue. Can anyone recommend me the right option to fix this.
Note - The link I have shared in the third bullet is the same topology of my scenario.
My end - Fortigate 1500D--------------------> Customer End - Cisco Meraki
Force them to NAT to an unused range. I know they hate change, but if they need you, they'll do it.

Thanks for your inputs.
I made them to NAT their Subnet from 192.168.1.0/24 to 172.20.1.0/24 and the traffic is flowing fine now.
But, I got a new challenge, as they are syncing Active Directory between the sites, and it doesn't support NAT.
Microsoft also not supporting this model. Now I am back to zero and have to find some solution again.
There is some kb article on this: https://kb.fortinet.com/kb/documentLink.do?externalID=FD35117
They use SSLVPN here but that will also work with IPSEC.
The trick here is to use vip to remap ips to a virtual subnet to work around the overlapping.
