BJP MP Meenakashi Lekhi hits Microsoft CEO over CAA remark says, 'Literate needs to be educated'

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's comment came out amidst of widespread protests against Citizenship Amendment Act in the country. 

"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," said Satya Nadella. This remark has not been accepted well by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and party MP Meenakshi Lekhi condemns corporate tycoon.

She called it a perfect example of  "How literate need to be educated," Meenakshi Lekhi tweeted: "Precise reason for CAA to grant opportunities to persecuted minorities from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. How about granting these opportunities to Syrian Muslims instead of Yezidis in USA?"

However, Microsoft has immediately tried to make amends and issued a fresh statement by Satya Nadella, and 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 statement read, " 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." But the damage was done.

Meenakashi Lekhi's view of providing 'opportunities' to Syrian Muslims instead of Yezidis in the US was intended to highlight the victims of the religious minorities facing persecution, and CAA is prioritizing them.
