Every country should define its borders, says Microsoft CEO Nadella

Every country should define its borders, says  Microsoft CEO Nadella

New Delhi, Jan 14 (UNI) Microsoft's Indian-origin CEO Satya Nadella on Tuesday issued clarification on Citizenship Amendment Act saying every country will and should define its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy.

In a statement issued by Microsoft India, Mr Nadella said: "Every country will and should define its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy accordingly. And in democracies, that is something that the people and their governments will debate and define within those bounds.'

He said his hope is for an India where an immigrant can aspire to find a prosperous start-up that benefits Indian society and economy.

' I'm shaped by my Indian heritage, growing up in a multicultural India and my immigrant experience in the United States. My hope is for an India where an immigrant can aspire to find a prosperous start-up or lead a multinational corporation benefitting Indian society and the economy at large," he said in his missive.

Mr Nadella has voiced concern over the CAA, saying what is happening is "sad".

While speaking to editors at a Microsoft event in Manhattan where he was asked about the contentious issue of CAA which grants citizenship to persecuted non-Muslim minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan, he has said, "I think what is happening is sad... It's just bad.... 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 has said, "To me, in fact, I obviously grew up in India and I'm very proud of where I get my heritage, culturally in that place, and I grew in a city. I always felt it was a great place to grow up, we celebrated Christmas, Diwali, all three festivals that big for us."

BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi has tweeted to Nadella's comments saying "How literate need to be educated! Perfect example."

She maintained that the precise reason for the CAA was to grant opportunities to persecuted minorities from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. "How about granting these opportunities to Syrian Muslims instead of Yezidis in the USA? " she said in her missive.
