Justice Liberhan report tabled in Parliament
The Justice M S Liberhan Commission of Inquiry that probed the demolition of Babri Masjid 17 years ago, indicted 68 top BJP and RSS leaders including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi.
Justice Liberhan also named former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh saying, the destruction of the disputed structure on December 6, 1992 was carried out in a “duplicitous and under-handed manner” which was not worthy of a democratically-elected government.
The Commission recommended a law providing for exemplary punishment for misuse of religion for acquiring political power and disqualification of political parties and candidates who have religious agenda.
The four-volume report running into over 1000 pages and government’s Action Taken Report (ATR) on it were tabled in Parliament by Home Minister P Chidambaram.
