Google's pro-Muslim algorithms


After many years, Texas imam Omar Suleiman has successfully lobbied Google into changing the algorithm used to find results on Muslim-related issues. According to the state-run Turkish news Anadolu Agency, Google's results about queries related to Islam or Muslims in the past produced "what many criticized as propaganda from hate groups" and "alleged disinformation." In contrast, now "Google's first page results for searches of terms such as 'jihad,' 'sharia' and 'taqiyya' return mostly reputable explanations of Islamic concepts."
