It was guns that killed innocent people, not technology: San Bernardino attack survivor’s husband stands with Apple Inc.


As when Tech and Social Media are bombarded with an ongoing battle between iPhone manufacturer, Apple Inc. and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a man — whose wife had nearly died in the San Bernardino terrorist attack — sides with Apple Inc. in his written letter to Judge Sheri Pym, who ordered Apple to help the FBI unlock one of the terrorists’ iPhones.

INSIGHT: An environmental health specialist, Mrs. Anies Kondoker survived the attack – with three bullet shots — at the San Bernardino Environmental Health department’s holiday party in which 14 people were killed. After when FBI requested smartphone manufacturer to unlock security code of a device belonging to one of the shooters in a terrorist activity, Apple Inc. had shown cold shoulder, saying it could not compromise on its customers’ privacy. The head of the FBI and Apple’s top lawyer will appear before a congressional panel on Tuesday to make their cases over the battle to get the San Bernardino iPhone unlocked.

Mr. Salihin Kondoker claimed to have had felt extremely frustrated by an initial decision taken by Apple, refusing the court order. However, after going through further press releases, he wrote:

“When I first learned Apple was opposing the order I was frustrated that it would be yet another roadblock. But as I read more about their case, I have come to understand their fight is for something much bigger than one phone. They are worried that this software the government wants them to use will be used against millions of other innocent people. I share their fear.”

Kondoker opined that the information on the iPhone probably is of no use to the government. The county could track all communications for those iPhones.

“They destroyed their personal phones after the attack. And I believe they did that for a reason. In the wake of this terrible attack, I believe strongly we need stronger gun laws. America should be proud of Apple. Proud that it is an American company and we should protect them and not try to tear them down. I support them in this case and I hope the court will too.” – Kondoker
