    Microsoft’s Indian-origin CEO Satya Nadella on Monday voiced concern over the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), saying what was happening was “sad” and he would love to see a Bangladeshi immigrant create the next unicorn in India.

    His comments came 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.

    “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,” Nadella was quoted to sources

    Nadella further said, “I mean after all immigration is an issue in this country (United States). It’s an issue in Europe and it’s an issue in India. But the approach one takes to deal with what is immigration, who are immigrants and minroity groups, that sensibility.”

    In a statement issued later by Microsoft India, 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.

    The Centre last week issued a gazette notification announcing that the CAA has come into effect from January 10, 2020.

    The CAA was passed by Parliament on December 11.

    According to the legislation, members of Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian communities who have come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan till December 31, 2014 due to religious persecution will not be treated as illegal immigrants but given Indian citizenship.

    There have been widespread protests against the Act in different parts of the country resulting in violence in many places.
