Bhopal, June 30 (ANI): Former Bharatiya Janata Party leader Uma Bharti on Tuesday volunteered to own responsibility for the demolition of Babri mosque at Ayodhya and said that she would have no problem even if she was hanged on the issue.
Reacting to the submission of the Liberhan Commission report on the demolition of the mosque, Uma Bharti said: "Like a good commander, I am ready to own the responsibility of the Babri masjid's demolition and I have no problem even if I will be hanged on the issue."
"The report, which has been submitted to the Prime Minister after 17 years of the constitution of the Commission, is an attempt to appease Muslim community," Bharati alleged.
"The UPA government led by Congress was unable to find a single person responsible for the massacre of 20,000 Sikhs at the behest of Congress after the death of the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. By doing so they deliberately wanted to term us culprits with an intention to divide Hindus and Muslims for political gains," Uma alleged.
Uma, however, appealed to the BJP leaders not to apologise for the demolition of Babri mosque as they themselves invited large number of people at Ayodhya for starting the 'Karseva'. (ANI)
