Vajpayee, Advani pseudo-moderates: Liberhan report
Mumbai, Nov 24: Former high court judge, MS Liberhan in his report has called Vajpayee, Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi as "pseudo-moderates" and condemned them for their role in the demolition.

"The attempts by the pseudo-moderate elements within the Parivar were predictably of little significance and were destined to fail, whether by design or otherwise," the report said.

On Vajpayee, Advani and Joshi, the report said, "These leaders cannot however be given the benefit of the doubt and exonerated of culpability."

The report further said, "They have violated the trust of the people and have allowed their actions to be dictated not by the voters but by a small group of individuals who have used them to implement agendas unsanctioned by the will of the common person."

"There can be no greater betrayal or crime in a democracy and this commission has no hesitation in condemning there pseudo-moderates for their sins of omission", the report added.

The Liberhan Commission has indicted BJP leaders Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani and the Sangh Parivar for the Babri Masjid demolition and held them culpable for leading the country "to the brink of communal discord".
