Tokyo, Jan. 30 (Jiji Press)—Rakuten President Mikitani Hiroshi vowed on Monday to back Muslim workers at the major Japanese online shopping mall operator, while denouncing US President Donald Trump’s immigration ban for passport-holders from some Muslim-majority countries.

“It is wrong as a human being” to “discriminate based on religion and nationality,” Mikitani wrote in English on Twitter. “We will support our Muslim staff members as a company and personally as well.”
