The Chief Executive Operation of Google, Sundar Pichai has also come forward to speak for the rights of Muslims in the United States of America.
“Let’s not let fear defeat our values. We must support Muslims and other minority communities in the US and around the world,” wrote the CEO in a blog post.
“It’s not just about opportunity. The open-mindedness, tolerance, and acceptance of new Americans is one of the country’s greatest strengths and most defining characteristics. And that is no coincidence – America, after all, was is a country of immigrants,” added Pichai.
As the Republican presidential front-runner’s remarks saying debar Muslims from entering the US couple of days ago has been reproached widely, Pichai countered the comments indirectly.
He expressed his disappointment at the recent spike in Islamophobic incidents across the US, saying: It’s so disheartening to see the intolerant discourse playing out in the news these days – statements that our country would be a better place without the voices, ideas and the contributions of certain groups of people, based solely on where they come from, or their religion.”
Earlier, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberge had also expressed his feelings for the Muslim community couple of days ago, saying they should not face discrimination as a reactionary ramification of attacks of Paris.
