Short, disappointed post just tickled at the irony. In my post “Who profits from hanging Yakub Memon?” I had pointed out that hanging him basically means yet another dead witness in ‘s grand tradition of dead witnesses against powerful criminals.

Ironically, as the news of the dismissing his curative petition on the day before his hanging is scheduled hit Twitter, two of the top trends were # and #याकूब_को_फांसी_दो.

The savetiger trend is because it is International tiger day today. It is only a supreme and ironic coincidence that the chief accused in the 1993 blasts against whom provided proof that broke the case wide open is nicknamed…. Tiger Memon.

Earlier Yakub had been found medically fit to be killed. A perplexing requirement for a hanging. How does it matter if someone is fit or unfit while being killed?

Since then, the Governor too has refused Yakub’s plea.
