Samajwadi Party leader writes a letter to Nominate Yakub Memon’s widow as Rajya Sabha MP

Yakub Memon might have left this world, but his name is still trending strong in almost all the social media networks, our political leaders are making sure of it.

Recently Samajwadi Party leader requested his party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav to nominate 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon’s widow Raheen as a Rajya Sabha MP. The letter broke out another level of controversy altogether.

Surprisingly, these remarks came just two days after 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon was hanged at Nagpur Central Jail.

Vice president of SP’s Maharashtra state unit Mohammed Farooq Ghosi wrote a letter to Mulayam in this regard. “Raheen was in jail for many years. How much she would have suffered.. Today I find Raheen helpless and there are many such Muslims in the country who find themselves helpless and for whom we have to fight for. We should make Raheen a Rajya Sabha MP and make her the voice of weak and helpless people,” Ghosi said.

Ghosi has termed the timing of the letter wrong. “I should not have written a letter to SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. I understand this was not a proper time to write such a letter.”

Memon was convicted for criminal conspiracy under Section 120-B of the IPC, aiding, abetting and facilitating a terrorist act, illegal possession and transportation of arms and ammunition and possessing explosives with intent to endanger lives. According to investigating agency, Tiger Memon got Yakub involved in planning and plotting the serial blasts that killed at least 257 people and injured about 700 on March 12, 1993.

Now, our leaders want to make this man’s widow as Member of Indian Parliment.
