    @Pure: I am not sure I understand the obsession of you Indians. There are millions of refugees in Europe looking for a better life including Indians like you. Why not let all the refugees settle in Europe since they are all looking for a better life. Germany has taken in over a million refugees- a few more shouldn’t matter. They deserve the same treatment as refugees from Afghanistan, Somalia, Arab countries or any other Muslim country who are equally trying to become refugees in Europe.Recommend
