The Liberhan Commission that probed the Babri Masjid demolition has held 68 people individually culpable for leading the country “to the brink of communal discord”. The list includes former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, senior BJP leaders LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi as well as Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray. Amongst the others in the list are then Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh, VHP leaders Ashok Singhal and Pravin Togadia, RSS chief KS Sudarshan as well as Govindacharya, the late Vijayaraje Scindia, Vinay Katiyar, Uma Bharti and Sadhvi Rithambara. Bureaucrats have been named too, including AK Saran, inspector general (security) and chief secretary VK Saxena. Meanwhile, Justice MS Liberhan on Tuesday remained composed and asked the media to read his report on the 1992 Babri mosque demolition before asking questions even as the controversial document was tabled by the government in Parliament. “All questions have been answered in the report. You should go and read the report and come to me after that,” Justice Liberhan, who headed the one-man commission into the mosque demolition for over 17 years, said at his residence. Speaking at his bungalow in the city’s upscale Sector 9, Liberhan was cool and composed on Tuesday compared to his outburst a day earlier when he had asked the media to “get lost” after being asked if he had leaked the report. Liberhan did not say anything else and went into his House.
