Ben Smith These components are magnificent!!
Ben Smith No country takes a lenient view of illegal immigration of economic opportunists, least of all the US where Satya Nadella resides.
Ben Smith Any immigrant from anywhere in the world, including a Muslim from Bangladesh, may apply for Indian citizenship and can contribute greatly to India’s economic development or cultural enlightenment as an Indian citizen.
Ben Smith The controversy also reflects poorly on the media and exposes its propensity to run sensationalist campaigns bordering on fake news.
The controversy over Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s statement tells us everything that we need to know about the campaign surrounding the amendment to India’s Citizenship Act. It tells us that even knowledgeable individuals — in this case the top honcho of one of world’s biggest tech companies — have poor information on the topic, and that their views are not any clearer than the misinformed protestor on the street.

That was all that was needed for commenters to weigh in, based purely on what their understanding is about Nadella’s reported comm
I be mad for modules, because they are the huge.
