      I agree with the Mr.Gopalkrishna hi--the great-gson of Indian Father of the Nation who wants Yakub to be pardoned.Yes...we should pardon Yakub and not hang him specially on Kalam's last rites at Rameshwaram. We can fight it over later. By this 'noble' act we will be pleasing Owaisi and Salman Khan and their clan. Mumbaikar pl.excuse Yakub and his ilk .All his ilk were depressed ,sick and poor in memory.Even the Gurdaspur incident...Punjabis excuse the militants as they toio were ill and depressed .

            The hue and cry raised over Yakub Memon*s hanging by the so called human rights activists "intellectuals"(?)etc is sickening .do not their hearts bleed for the victims of the 1993 mumbai blasts?and to cap it all hudeen Owasis says that Memon is being hanged because he is a Muslim!can anti nationalism go any further?It is time the Indian state at least under Modi proves to be different from the appeasing UPA-2 Govt and proves it*s worth by hanging yakub memon without any further delay and useless discussions.What for we have to wait when the supreme Court itself has given the nod for hanging yakub?
