Because Windows is used more than Linux, there are more criminals and governments targeting Windows for their malicious purposes than Linux.
But that doesn't mean that Linux is 100% safe.

I know this answers may vary from one to another, and each one will have its own reasons. In my opinion, linux is more secured compared to windows, in several fronts.
