Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said that one should not give any importance to Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s remark on the hanging of 1993 Bombay blasts convict Yakub Memon.

“Do not pay attention to such talks. Many people will say many things. But the action should be taken only by the concerned persons. By his tweets, does he mean to say that the country’s judgment policy is faulty?” he said.

In a controversial tweet, Salman Khan has said that Yakub Memon should not be hanged as the real culprit is the latter’s brother Tiger Memon.

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.
