New Delhi: Congress leader Digvijay Singh has invited severe criticism for his series of tweets on the execution of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon on Thursday.

Over 22 years after the 1993 Mumbai blasts, Yakub Memon, the sole convict on death row, was hanged on his 53rd birthday today in Nagpur Jail.

Expressing his views on Memon's hanging, Singh said: “Yakub Memon hanged. Exemplary urgency and commitment has been shown by Govt and Judiciary in punishing an accused of Terror.”

Singh's tweets evoked strong reaction from the twitterratis

The Congress leader also compared late former president APJ Abdul Kalam's funeral to the hanging of Menon and faced backlash.
