Actor Salman Khan has been tweeting defending Yakub Memon, who is a convict in the 1993 Mumbai blasts. His tweets created furor on social media and father Salim Khan had to step in to calm down the situation.

An IBN report quoted Salim Khan as saying, “Whatever Salman has written is ridiculous and meaningless. Salman is ignorant of the issue and people should not take him seriously."

While Salman tweeted saying that instead of Yakub, the actual culprit – Tiger Memon should be hanged. Salim Khan, however had to say, “Yakub should be kept in jail rather be hanged. Keeping him alive is a bigger punishment."

According to an ANI report, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam has requested Salman to withdraw his tweets. Salman’s tweets are however still visible.

An IANS report mentioned that Milind Deora, MP from the Mumbai South constituency, tried to clear the confusion over Salman supporting a convict, by saying that the actor wanted to bring the main accused into focus.

"Spoke to @BeingSalmanKhan last evening & today. He doesn't believe Yakub Memon isn't guilty & was only spotlighting YM's brother's cowardice," Deora tweeted on Sunday.
