Mark Zuckerberg has come out in strong support of Muslims, after one of the most bizarre presidential candidates globally — Mr. Donald Trump — continued his controversial run of controversial remarks. The bigot had proposed a complete ban on Muslims from entering the US to prevent terrorism which received severe criticism from all the countries.
Zuckerberg however, had a different notion all together. And considering that Facebook is nothing short of a ‘digital country’ in itself, his remarks come at just the right time, hitting just the right chord.
If you’re a Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you,
wrote Mark in his Facebook post.
He said that he could imagine the fear in the minds of Muslim people and being a Jew he was taught to stand up against attacks on all communities. He urged the people to not to lose hope as hatred of few people can make it easy to succumb to cynicism.
As long as we stand together and see the good in each other, we can build a better world for all people.
The comments made by Zuckerberg also become important and reiterate the stand of the social networking giant in the wake of recent criticism being faced by Facebook for complying with censorship laws in some countries, particularly in the Middle East.
Instead of completely stopping its operations in these countries like many other websites, Facebook had decided to go along with rules. Zuckerberg had maintained that connecting people with others was more important and promoted liberty, even if their freedom of speech was limited.
