It is good to see a buddhist temple being build in Europe.

However, I am perplexed an debate has erupted that it is being largely supported by the Vietnamese community and financially backed by the Chinese community.

I think the real message is the temple is for for everyone and the Chinese community should play a larger role in helping shape this construction and potential east asian landmark.

I'm not hiding behind anything.

Until today, the Chinese community ist still the financial backbone of that temple.
Oh good for them. How big is the Vietnamese community now?

Well, Hannover has ca. 2000 Vietnamese and ca. 3000 Chinese (including Chinese expats sent by Chinese companies), but the congregation is much bigger. Worshippers come from many parts of Northern Germany, e.g. Hamburg, which has the largest Chinese expat community in Germany. There are more than 400 Chinese company HQ in Hamburg.
