NSA Ajit Doval defends Yakub’s execution, slams Tharoor


  • National Security Adviser Ajit Doval today defended death penalty where “larger interest of the nation” is involved and deprecated those who questioned the execution of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts convict Yakub Memon.
  • Disapproving of former Union minister Shashi Tharoor’s remarks in the aftermath of Memon’s hanging, Doval said something that is in the “larger interest of the nation” must prevail.
  • Doval said “weakness” of a nation includes “unjustified tolerance”.
  • Doval also said it is not right to say that India executed Yakub as “revenge” for not being able to get hold of his brother Tiger Memon.
