Germany's central bank has decided to ask the country's president to dismiss one of its board members, Thilo Sarrazin, over comments he made about immigration, Muslims and Jews.

In his book Mr Sarrazin claimed that Germans will end up strangers in their own land because of Muslim immigration.

Speaking on BBC World Service, one of his prominent supporters, Necla Kelek - who herself is a German of Turkish origin - said Germany needed an open debate on immigration.
