Google CEO Sundar Pichai writes supporting Muslims

India-born Google head Sundar Pichai is the latest technology industry CEO to come out against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's recent anti-Muslim tirade.

"Let's not let fear defeat our values", Pichai wrote on Friday on Medium, a blog platform. "... 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 and is a country of immigrants."

Though Pichai didn't name Trump directly, he did make a reference to the controversy. "That is why 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."
