Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Majeed Memon on Friday said the hanging of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon should not be seen from a communal or political prism.

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Majeed Memon on Friday said the hanging of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon should not be seen from a communal or political prism.

“We must not see too much of communalism or politics into it. The highest court will apply its mind and do justice,” Memon told ANI.

His reaction came after AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that Yakub is being hanged only because he belongs to a particular religion.

Owaisi further said that death sentences of those convicted in former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination case were commuted to life imprisonment.

Yakub, who is to be hanged on July 30, had last week filed a mercy petition to the Governor.
