Parsis: The Zoroastrians of India Pakistan and The World

CJI Kapadia calls upon Parsis abroad to help in nation building

Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sarosh Kapadia has urged members of the Parsi community settled abroad to return to India and contribute to national development.

“I always believed that it is better to be a first-class citizen in India than a second-class citizen abroad,” said Kapadia, during his felicitation by the Bombay Parsi Punchayat here on Saturday.

Kapadia, who took over as Chief Justice of India on May 12 this year, said there was no discrimination in India and he felt that the Parsi community will flourish in the coming generations.

“The country offers an opportunity and it is wrong to say that in India we do not have opportunities. Our great nation has given me opportunities. I have not seen any discrimination,” he said. (ANI)
