Multiculturalism has failed, says German Chancellor Merkel

New Delhi: As an anti-immigration wave is sweeping in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel has made controversial remarks on multiculturalism.

\"The approach to (build) a multicultural (society) and to live side-by-side and to enjoy each other has failed, utterly failed,\" said Merkel.

She said this to a gathering of youths of her party Christian Democractic Union, in reference to German President Christian Wulff\'s recent remarks that Islam was part of Germany like Christianity and Judaism.

Going with the present anti-immigration sentiment in Germany, where over 30 per cent people in a poll felt Germany was being run by foreigners, Merkel said immigrants should learn to speak German.
