Salman tweeted calling Yakub Memon, the man behind the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai, innocent. Yakub’s brother, Tiger Memon, the main accused in the case and who is absconding, should be hanged instead.

Even the actors father, noted screenwriter Salim Khan, said Salman should not say anything about these kind of serious topics without any knowledge. He should not have made such a comment. Salman is ignorant of the issue and people should not take him seriously.

The actor also said killing Yakub would be killing humanity. After Salman Khan’s tweets, there were protests all over against him. As the protests grew and even posters of the actor’s latest movies were burnt at some spots, the Mumbai Police strengthened security outside his residence.
