New Delhi, Nov.24 (ANI): Even as the details of the Liberhan Commission's findings are yet to be revealed to the public due to the availability of limited copies of the English version, the 13-page Action Taken Report (ATR) of the government have been put in the public domain.

Justice M S Liberhan had submitted his findings to the government on June 30 this year after an inquiry spanning nearly 17 years.

TIMES NOW channel, on Tuesday, claimed to have accessed the ATR, which clearly stops short of suggesting action against any specific person.

The ATR doesn't name any individual against whom fresh action needs to be taken - on the basis of the Liberhan report - for the demolition of the Babri mosque demolition in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992.

The ATR recommended that no fresh charges will be formed against 'anybody'.

The ATR also states that 'No political leader who holds a position of power in the government will be allowed to simultaneously hold any position in religious organisations'. It mentions of a new law to ensure that those guilty of using religion or caste for political gain would face exemplary punishment.

On the issue of action to be taken against people behind the demolition, the government thinks it would not be prudent on its part to register fresh cases as there are multiple cases still pending against the accused in courts.

The ATR says that the government will work towards expediting the ongoing trial in the lower courts in Uttar Pradesh.

Besides, the report supports legislature to enable Central government to take over administration of a specified area for riot control and set up specialised investigating squads to investigate communal riots. (ANI)
