Salman Khan urges PM Nawaz to confirm if Mumbai blasts suspect is hiding in Pakistan — Anti-Salman tweets make trend on Twitter

Bollywood heartthrob Salman Khan on has come up in defence of Yakub Memon, who is set to be executed for his role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, demanding his brother Tiger Memon should be hanged instead.

Salman lashed out at Tiger Memon in a chain of tweets posted early on Sunday, and asked Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to confirm whether the mob boss is in his country.

Tiger Memon has been absconding since the blasts that killed 257 people and injured 1,400 others. “Get tiger hang him. Parade him not his brother,” Salman tweeted. He described Tiger Memon as a ‘lomdi’ or fox and criticised him for remaining silent at a time when his brother is set to be marched to the gallows.

Salman said he had been wanting to tweet on the issue for three days but had been “afraid to do so” because it involved a man and his family. “Don’t hang brother, hang tha lomdi who ran away,” he tweeted.

The actor’s tweets come amidst a raging debate on whether Yakub Memon should be hanged since he had returned to India from Pakistan with the reported intention of clearing his name.

Yakub Memon, a chartered accountant and the only well-educated member of the Memon family, was found guilty of criminal conspiracy, arranging money for buying vehicles used by the bombers and organising air tickets to Dubai for some of them. He has for long said that he had no direct participation in planning or executing the bombings.

After the Supreme Court dismissed his curative petition, Yakub Memon submitted a mercy petition to the Maharashtra governor. He also approached the Supreme Court afresh for staying his execution. If his pleas are dismissed, he will be hanged at the Nagpur Central Jail on July 30.
