A few weeks ago, Salman had debated on the controversial issue
Salman Khan and Raj Thackeray are known to be great friends. In fact, the politician and the actor have been spotted together at various occasions. At a recent event, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena Chief Raj Thackeray slammed his good friend Salman Khan for commenting in favour of Yakum Memom ahead of his execution on July 30.
Thackeray said, "Salman is a man without brains, while his father is a respectable man. He does not read newspapers and does not know the law and thus went on tweeting in his (Yakub's) favour. Then there are people who sent letters to the President seeking mercy for the traitor. How can anybody question a Supreme Court order?"
While talking at a party rally, Thackeray also slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party over the execution of Yakub, According to the politician, the BJP-led governments at the Centre as well as the state wanted "riots to break out in the country".
"Yakub Memon was a terrorist but his hanging episode was converted into a drama by both the Centre and the state government. Looking into the events preceding and following the hanging of this traitor who killed so many people, I feel that both governments only wanted riots to break out in the country," added Thackeray.
