Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi today said that the Supreme Court’s decision of upholding death sentence of Yakub Memon has come as a huge disappointment. “If capital punishments can bring closure to the victims of the bomb blast, then the capital punishment should also be given to the people behind the destruction of Babri Masjid,” he said. Owaisi also said that when the killers of Rajiv Gandhi and Beant Singh can be shown mercy, then why not Yakub? “Rajiv Gandhi and Beant Singh killers have backing of respective political parties, that is why they have not been given capital punishment,”he said. “Yakub had surrendered himself and cooperated in the probe, he did not deserve the capital punishment ,” Owaisi added
