Satya Nadella, chief executive (CEO) of US technology company Microsoft, has lamented India’s controversial citizenship law.
According to foreign media, the Indian-born CEO of Microsoft addressed a function in New York, saying that what is happening in India is regrettable.
Satya Nadella says he wants to see a Bangladeshi immigrant succeed in India’s technology industry.
Microsoft CEO said that those born in India, the current situation is not good for them, hope that the refugees can live a prosperous life in India.
It is to be noted that on December 11 last year, the Indian Parliament passed a controversial citizenship law that would allow non-Muslims from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan to go to India but not Muslims.
The law also concerns the evacuation of large numbers of Bangladeshi migrants living in India.
There is a nationwide protest against this controversial citizenship law in India and people from all walks of life are participating in the protest.
Several Indian states, including Punjab, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, have refused to enforce the controversial citizenship law, while the Indian state of Kerala has taken the law to the Supreme Court.
