New Delhi: Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev on Sunday said that along with hanging the traitors, it is equally important to teach a lesson to the supporters of those who are against humanity and nation.

"Hanging traitors is important, but it is also important to teach a lesson to all those who stand with the enemies of humanity and nation," he said.

Ramdev's reaction come after Bollywood actor Salman Khan in a controversial tweet said that Yakub Memon should not be hanged as the real culprit is the latter's brother Tiger Memon.

Yakub Memon has been sentenced to death for his role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

The Supreme Court had earlier this week rejected his last-minute appeal and upheld his hanging for July 30.

Yakub had challenged the apex court's order arguing that legal procedure was overlooked in awarding him death penalty. He said that the special TADA (Terrorists and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) court, which ordered him death warrant in 2007, did so before he could exhaust all his legal options.
