Dalai Lama Visits Malmo, Sweden, and Declares, "Europe Belongs To Europeans, Refugees Should Return To Their Native Countries and Rebuild Them"

From The Independent:
The Dalai Lama has sparked anger after declaring that "Europe belongs to the Europeans". The Tibetan spiritual leader, who is admired across the world, also said that refugees should return to their native countries and assist with developing them. 
The 14th Dalai Lama was speaking at a conference in Malmo, a city in Sweden which is home to a large immigrant population, according to the Business Times. 
"I think Europe belongs to the Europeans." 
He was speaking in the aftermath of a divisive election in Sweden in which a far-right party, the Swedish Democrats, made electoral gains, although they were beaten by the country's centre-left coalition. 
The Dalai Lama also said that Europe was "morally responsible" for helping "a refugee really facing danger against their life".    
"Receive them, help them, educate them... but ultimately they should develop their own country," the 83-year-old said, when speaking about refugees. 
Social media users condemned the comments, calling the Dalai Lama a "bigot of the first order" and a "hypocrite".
