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 has been living in the US as an immigrant and hopes that things get better in India. He mentioned that he wanted to see a mor3e diverse India. He went on to mention the following regarding the matter:
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 found a prosperous start-up or lead a multinational corporation benefitting Indian society and the economy at large.
After this incident, many Indians are calling the CEO “anti-national,” or an “urban naxal.” on twitter. The Indian Citizenship Bill came into effect on 10th January after being passed in the Indian Parliament on 11th December 2019. Many have taken to the streets and protested this bill including Hindu locals.
