“Literate need to be educated”says Meenakshi Lekhi hits out at Satya Nadella

I would love to see a Bangladeshi immigrant coming to India and creates the next unicorn in-country or become the next CEO of Infosys”

New Delhi: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s stated that Citizenship Amendment Act is just bad and sad for India” has not gone down well with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and party leader and MP Meenakshi Lekhi hits out at the business executive on Tuesday.

Meenakshi Lekhi said through tweeter: it a “perfect example” of “How literate need to be educated“, “Precise reason for CAA to grant opportunities to persecuted minorities from Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. How about granting these opportunities to Syrian Muslims alternative of Yezidis in the USA?”

The ruling BJP government lashed out at Nadella when he spoke out against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Earlier he said: “I think what is happening is sad. It’s just bad. I would love to see a Bangladeshi immigrant coming to India and creates the next unicorn in-country or become the next CEO of Infosys”.

Satya Nadella said: “Every nation will and should describe its borders, protect national security and set immigration policy. In a democracy, that is something that the people and their governments will debate and define within those bounds”.

“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 flouring start-up or lead a multinational corporation benefitting Indian society and the economy at large,” the comment read. But the damage was done.

BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi’s analogy of providing “opportunities” to Syrian Muslims instead of Yezidis in the US was intended to highlight the victims have been the religious minority facing persecution, who are being given priority through the CAA.
