After Salman Khan, Bollywood Bigwigs Seek Mercy for Yakub Menon!

In a twist of tale while Bollywood actor Salman Khan after his sensational tweet in support of Mumbai bomb blast convict Yakub Menon received flak and 'apologized unconditionally' for his remarks, surprising the other bigwigs of Bollywood like Mahesh Bhatt, Naseeruddin Shah, and famous MP and film star Shatrughan Sinha have come in defence of Yakub Menon.

It may be noted that these Bollywood celebrities are part of a mercy plea submitted to President Pranab Mukherjee requesting the Honorable President to grand mercy to the dreaded criminal Yakub Abdul Razak Memon and spare him from the noose of death for a crime that was master-minded by someone else to communally divide the country. 

The mercy plea is signed by as many as 40 eminent celebrities that include besides film fraternity, eminent Justice, lawyer, politicians, academicians, social activists and others.


It may be remembered that Bollywood yesteryear star and Lok Sabha MP Shatrughan Sinha, who has signed the mercy plea, in a statement had earlier even supported Salman Khan’s remark on Yakub Menon. 

He said, “Salman Khan has not said anything wrong about Yakub Memon. I think there is no harm in supporting anybody's mercy petition. Salman Khan in his tweet had tweeted "Get Tiger hang him. Parade him, not his brother. One innocent man being killed is killing humanity.” 

There are still few more days to go for the execution of Yakub Menon to happen and as expected these pseudo-secular brigade have began protecting the terrorist using the time tested ‘human rights’ route and how death sentence is ‘inhumane’.

One fails to understand the lame logic of these so-called human right protectors because if dreaded criminals like Yakub Memon, who is accused in heinous crime like genocide, are denied capital punishment then a day will come when such criminals will never be afraid of death and would be encouraged to commit more gruesome crimes. 

As we see in the cases of reckless driving or even rape, the reason why these crimes have risen beyond control is simply because we do not have stringent punishments. 

Thus if capital punishment is not awarded to dreaded terrorists like Yakub Menon then why keep capital punishment in the book of law? What say???

‘BAAHUBALI’ Prabhas meets Narendra Modi and Rajnath Singh

SS Rajamouli’s BAAHUBALI: THE BEGINNING is not only breaking box office records and is appealing film buffs around the globe but the movie has even caught the attention of none other but the Prime Minster of India Narendra Modi and the Home Minister Rajnath Singh as well. 

Both the Prime Minister and Home Minister have assured dashing and debonair Telugu actor Prabhas, to watch the film soon, when he met them in New Delhi. 

Prabhas sharing his pictures on social networking sites with Prime Minster of India Narendra Modi and the Home Minister Rajnath Singh expressed joy that despite their busy schedules both the Prime Minister and Home Minister welcomed him with grace and even expressed their desire to watch his film BAAHUBALI: THE BEGINNING.


In an interview Prabhas delighted at meeting his ‘idol’ Narendra Modi said, “I am a huge fan of Narendra Modiji and am very happy meeting him. I shall always treasure this day all my life.” 

Informing about the purpose of his visit Prabhas said, “I met him because it is my earnest wish that Modiji must watch BAAHUBALI.”

He added, “To my pleasant surprise when I spoke about the movie to him he told me that he has heard a lot about the movie but being busy he has not been able to watch the film. He has assured me that he will surely watch the movie.” 

Apart from PM Modi, Prabhas also met Home Minister Rajnath Singh as well, who too seemed excited to watch the movie. In fact Rajnath Singh recently even shared a photograph of him with Prabhas on social network stating that he looked forward to watching the film.

Interestingly though Salman Khan’s recent hit BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN is running successfully but it is stunning that BAAHUBALI, despite in its third week is giving a tough time to BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN. 

Trade reports claim BAAHUBALI is doing brisk business and is registering an average of 70% occupancy in the existing number of cinema halls across the globe.

According to trade reports BAAHUBALI has crossed over Rs 400 Crore at the worldwide box office in 15 days. Incredible indeed!!
