New Delhi/IBNS: At a time when the country is witnessing protests over the new citizenship law passed by the Centre last year, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella on Monday termed the situation in the country as “bad.”

"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," BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith tweeted quoting Nadella. (However, the verbate posted by Smith did not contain the word sad, it reads bad..) 

Microsoft later posted another statement where Nadella said : "Every country will and should define its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy accordingly. And in democracies, this is something that the people and their governments will debate and define within those bounds."

"I’m the shaped by 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," he said.

The Indian government passed the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) on Dec 11.

It came to force on Jan 10.

The CAA will grant citizenship to all non-Muslim refugees who came to India from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan before 2015. 

India has witnessed massive protests against the bill since 2019.
