Mike Lazaridis Ends BBC Interview When Being Asked Stance On India

Posted Apr 13, 2011

Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM) CEO Mike Lazaridis does not like being asked about his stance about India. The government in India made heavy security demands from Research In Motion’s secure message and e-mail networks to counter terrorism. Lazaridis ended a recent BBC interview when being pressed about the security issues overseas. Below is what he said in regards to the situation:

“You implied that we have a security problem, we don’t have a security problem … we’ve just been singled out, because we’re so successful around the world. It’s an iconic product, used by business, it’s used by leaders, it’s used by celebrities, it’s used by consumers, it’s used by teenagers, we were just singled out.”
