Why Mahatma Gandhi Would Have Hanged His Grandson?



Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, known for his work like Satya, Sarkar and Company that dealt with the underworld theme, is back in news.

No, the maverick RGV is not making a movie on the life of Yakub Memon. He is venting his ire at Tushar Gandhi, activist and Mahatma Gandhi’s great grandson, for opposing Yakub Memon’s execution on a news channel.

Gandhi was part of an initiative launched by some eminent citizens, including journalists, lawyers and activists, who were demanding a stay on Memon’s hanging based on a host of factors. Memon, accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, was hanged to death on Thursday morning at a Nagpur jail after Supreme Court rejected his mercy plea.

Tushar had said on the show, “This is nothing but judiciary-sanctioned murder and (it) must be abolished. I am opposed to death penalty because execution is like evil countering evil and two evils cannot make a good. It is a medieval, barbaric practice to bring the accused of a crime to justice.”

Varma wrote on Twitter:

He prefaced his comments on Gandhi and Memon with:

Talking about Gandhi, the filmmaker wrote:

Not satisfied with a mere slap, he added in the next tweet:

The director who has had face-offs with many other people due to his Twitter comments in the past, topped his tweets off with this:

Team Khurki
Team Khurki
KHURKI is a character who's sarcastic by birth and has sarcasm running in its veins in place of blood. Its bitter-sour tongue gives it the edge!
