19 tweets by Adarsh Liberals who didn’t want Yakub Memon to be hanged

Yakub Memon, the terrorist who was “a driving spirit” in the 1993 Bombay blast got convicted and hanged today at 5 am. Interestingly, he had plead for mercy and his last-minute mercy petition was rejected today by President Pranab Mukherjee. He got hanged today, and #YakubHanged is trending on Twitter right now.

However, a lot of nationalists who otherwise claim to be the intellectuals and torch bearers of the nation, failed to realize the sensitivity of the case and wanted Yakub to not be hanged. The trolls on Twitter commonly refer them to as ‘Adarsh Liberals‘, and we must say, rightfully so. Here are a few of them, who had completely lost it, while trying to be a liberal. Have a look at what they had to say. Needless to say, all of them were mercilessly trolled on Twitter for their insensitive comments on the Yakub case.

9. What about the bomb blasts and killing of innocents?


10. Look at how ‘now’ has been focused here. 


11. Do we have another way? Look at the entire series of the tweets here.








15. Good time? Are we forgetting who was ruling party at center then?


16. The great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi says,


17. Sad to know about such insensitivity.
