CAA: Microsoft boss calls India's new citizenship law 'sad'ND


BBC News, Tuesday January 14, 2019

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has called India’s controversial new citizenship law “sad”, amid ongoing protests against the law that have become violent around India in recent weeks. Thousands of protesters have marched the streets of some of India’s biggest cities against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), criticising it for being discriminatory against Muslims as it only fast-tracks citizenship applications by non-Muslims from India’s neighbouring Muslim-majority nations. While speaking at a Microsoft event in New York, Mr Nadella said he envisages a different India: "I would love to see a Bangladeshi immigrant who comes to India and creates the next unicorn in India or becomes the next CEO of Infosys," he said. Following the event, Microsoft India issued a statement quoting Mr Nadella: “My hope is for an India where an immigrant can aspire to found a prosperous start-up or lead a multinational corporation benefitting Indian society and the economy at large.”
