The debate surrounding the death penalty imposed on the 1993 Mumbai blasts accused Yakub Memon has another participant, with Bollywood actor Salman Khan weighing in. The 49-year-old actor took to Twitter in the wee hours of Sunday morning to launch a raft of tweets. The first one merely said “Hang tiger” and Khan went on to comment on how Yakub was innocent and that Tiger was absconding while his brother was being hanged. Nearing the end of his series of tweets, Khan says that he had wanted to say these things for the past three days but was afraid to do so. Yakub Memon is to be executed on July 30, 2015.
