That’s because the Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader of Tibet said that, while Europe can help refugees, “Europe belongs to the Europeans and Muslim migrants should rebuild their own homelands.” For that alone, some European leaders say he should be banned from Europe, if not jailed for anti-Muslim thought crimes should he visit there.
Daily Caller The Dalai Lama made the comments at a conference in Malmo, Sweden, which has struggled with an increase in rape and violent crimes correlating to an increase in refugees from Syria and other predominantly Muslim countries.
The Dalai Lama argued that European countries were “morally responsible” for assisting “a refugee really facing danger against their life,” but that refugees should ultimately go back and rebuild their home countries.
The spiritual leader’s comments likely struck a chord with locals, as Sweden has experienced an explosion in violent migrant gang-related incidents, many of which involved military-grade explosive devices, since 2014 when over 100,000 asylum seekers from predominantly Muslim countries settled in the area.
The Dalai Lama also made similar comments concerning refugees in Germany in 2016, saying that “Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country.” “Germany is Germany. There are so many that in practice it becomes difficult,” he said, according to Independent.
“From a moral point of view, too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily,” he added.
