"What I said is that Yakub Memon should not hang for him (Tiger). I have not said or implied that Yakub Memon is innocent. I have complete faith in the judicial system of our country. Many lives were lost in the Mumbai blasts. And I have repeatedly said the loss of (even) one innocent life is equal to the loss of all humanity”, Salman tweeted.


"My dad called ... said I should retract my tweets as they have the potential to create misunderstanding. I hereby retract them. I would like to unconditionally apologize for any misunderstanding I may have created unintentionally”, the actor tweeted.


"I also strongly condemn those who are claiming my tweets are anti-religious. I have always said I respect all faiths and I always will," he added.
