In a controversial tweet, Bollywood actor Salman Khan has said that 1993 Bombay blasts convict Yakub Memon should not be hanged as the real culprit is the latter's brother Tiger Memon.
Salman Khan took to twitter to express his views.
“Get tiger hang him. Parade him not his brother,” Salman Khan tweeted.
“Brother is being hanged for tiger. Aarrre Whr is tiger?,” Salman Khan said in another tweet.
The actor also poked fun at Tiger Memon.
“Kidhar chupa hai tiger? Hey koi tiger nahi hai hai hai billi aur hum ek billi ko nahi pakad sakteh,” Salman Khan tweeted.
“1 innocent man killed is killing the humanity,” he said in another tweet.
Yakub Memon has been sentenced to death for his role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
The Supreme Court had earlier this week rejected his last-minute appeal and upheld his hanging for July 30.
Yakub Memon had challenged the apex court’s order arguing that legal procedure was overlooked in awarding him death penalty. He said that the special TADA (Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (Prevention)) court, which ordered him death warrant in 2007, did so before he could exhaust all his legal options.
