Jews and Hindus urge Merkel to show tolerance to immigrants

Jewish and Hindu representatives issued a statement Tuesday urging German Chancellor Angela Merkel to show more tolerance to immigrants and not to stigmatize them.
In a statement made in Nevada, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed and Rabbi Jonathan B. Freirich said that "instead of blaming multiculturalism as a failure, Merkel and other German leaders should make more efforts to create a society where all Germans could learn to live together in peace and mutual trust despite seriously different traditions, beliefs and backgrounds."
The statement came in the wake of Merkel's remarks last which, in which she said that multiculturalism in Germany had "utterly failed."
