Tim Cook’s response to FBI: Building a backdoor to iOS

FBI has told Apple to make a new version of iOS for it’s iPhone. Which can allow FBI to access the encrypted data from the iPhones, recovered during the investigation. FBI has asked Apple to build a backdoor to the iPhone.
Apple is well known for it’s secure services and protecting customer data, and FBI is now asking them to create a backdoor so that they can access this data. Tim Cook said even though the intentions of FBI are good but they can’t allow any Government organization to access the personal data of their customers. 
Tim Cook wrote an open later to Apple customers saying,

We are challenging the FBI’s demands with the deepest respect for American democracy and a love of our country. We believe it would be in the best interest of everyone to step back and consider the implications.

While we believe the FBI’s intentions are good, it would be wrong for the government to force us to build a backdoor into our products. And ultimately, we fear that this demand would undermine the very freedoms and liberty our government is meant to protect.
