Social media used to spread communal disharmony: KN Tripathi


Agra: West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi on Monday took on the Social media saying that it is being used to spread communal disharmony in the society on the issue of Yakub Memon. He also added that there should be a state machinery to prevent this from happening.

Tripathi was addressing a meet of the Constitutional Club of Agra, where he said that it was a quite disheartening sight to see several prominent Supreme Court lawyers questioning Yakub’s death sentence, when the sentence was passed by the Supreme Court of India after following due course of law.

He said that some people are using the Yakub Memon issue to spread Communal disharmony in the country and the chapter should have been closed the day he was hanged.

He said that this was the first time when a terrorist was hanged after so many legal complications introduced unnecessarily by the people who themselves had sworn to uphold the law.
