'America was and is a country of immigrants':Sundar Pichai

New York: Dec 12;  After Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai has come out in support of Muslims, saying that we must support Muslim and other minority communities in the US and around the world.

Responding to a recent wave of prejudice against Muslims - especially in the wake of US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump asking for a ban on Muslims entering the US - the Indian-born top Google executive reiterated his own experience and said let us not let fear defeat our values.

"I came to the US from India 22 years ago. I was fortunate enough to gain entry to a university here, and time after time, I saw that hard work opened other doors. I have built a career and a family and a life here. And I've felt as much a part of this country, as I felt growing up in India," he posted on the social message platform Medium on Saturday.

"And that is no coincidence -- America, after all, was and is a country of immigrants," he said. Pichai said he firmly believes that a diverse mix of voices, backgrounds and experiences leads to better discussions, better decisions, and better outcomes for everyone.
