"It is a shame that there are certain people who are opposing Yakub Memon's hanging. Those who are opposing are traitors. Irrespective of any party affiliation whoever is opposing it is a traitor and should go to Pakistan and Saudi Arabia," Alam, national secretary of the BJP's Minority Morcha, said. Asked about BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha's signing of the mercy petition for Yakub Memon, Alam said," I don't know what Sinha has said. But I feel that whoever is opposing it is a traitor and is anti-national. It is better that they should go to Pakistan."
