The Dalai Lama insisted Wednesday that “Europe is for Europeans,” warning that if too many migrants are allowed to stay, the continent could become “Muslim” or “African.”.
He told the BBC that only a “limited number” of migrants should be permitted to reside in Europe.
The 83-year-old said Europe should take in refugees and offer them an education, but then send them back to their homelands.
“A limited number is OK, but whole Europe eventually become Muslim country? Impossible. Or African country? Also impossible.”
Asked what was wrong with the scenario of Europe becoming Muslim or African, he said:
“They themselves I think better to their own land. Keep Europe for Europeans.”
