On Liberhan Commission Report


THE demolition of the Babri Masjid by constituents of the Sangh combine was one of the greatest crimes against the secular character of the constitution. The role of the central government also came under severe criticism. In response to the national outrage, the Liberhan commission was set up to pinpoint the guilt and responsibility of those involved. Unfortunately, the commission took sixteen years to present its report, having got a record number of 48 extensions by different governments at the centre. 

Now that its report has been submitted to the government, it is incumbent on the central government to immediately make the report public by tabling it in the current session of parliament.
