Chandigarh, Nov 24 (ANI): Commission head Justice Manmohan Singh Liberhan (retired) asked the media to read the mosque probe report, which was tabled in the parliament on Tuesday, and then put up questions in a bid to resolve the controversy, which spiralled up after the report was leaked to the media.

"Read the report first and then if you have any questions after that then I'll speak. Anyhow, all the questions have been answered in the report itself. I have written it, signed it and submitted it to the Prime Minister," Justice Liberhan said.

Union Home Minister Palanippan Chidambaram on Tuesday tabled the enquiry report of the Liberhan Commission, along with action taken report, in parliament.

A day before that a leading English daily had claimed that as per a leaked report of Liberhan Commission, top leaders of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), Atal Behari Vajpayee, Lal Krishna Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi have been found guilty of Babri Mosque (Babri masjid) demolition.

Liberhan Commission, the one-man commission headed by Justice M S Liberhan, probed into the circumstances leading to the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992.

The probe panel, which took almost 17 years, recorded the statements of senior BJP leaders Lal Krishna Advani, Joshi and the then chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Kalyan Singh.

On December 6, 1992, the Babri mosque in Ayodhya was destroyed in a fiery campaign to build a temple for Lord Rama at that place. (ANI)
