WEB DESK: The Famous tech companies Uber, Apple, Google finally broke the silence regarding Muslim registry for the incoming Trump administration, Buzzfeed reported.
As reported, in a statement issued on Friday, an Apple spokesperson said, “We think people should be treated the same no matter who and how they worship, what they look like, who they love. We haven’t been asked and we would oppose such an effort.”
Whereas, earlier Friday, a Google spokesperson issued a statement saying, “In relation to the hypothetical of whether we would ever help build a ‘muslim registry’ — we haven’t been asked, of course we wouldn’t do this and we are glad — from all that we’ve read — that the proposal doesn’t seem to be on the table.”
Meanwhile, Uber responded to BuzzFeed with a terse “no” in response to a similar inquiry.
A number of other tech companies have gone on the record disavowing the highly controversial Trump campaign promise. Microsoft PR head Frank X. Shaw said in a statement given to Buzzfeed, “We oppose discrimination and we wouldn’t do any work to build a registry of Muslim Americans.”
