New Delhi: CPI(M) on Wednesday said the Liberhan Commission report has demolished the defence of BJP that Babri Masjid demolition was a "spontaneous movement" but has laid itself open to the charge of a political bias by not pinpointing the failure of Centre to take action.

The CPI(M) Politburo said the Commission has made "a clear and sharp" indictment of the RSS, the BJP and other constituents of the Sangh Parivar.

"The report demolishes the defence put out by the BJP that it was a spontaneous movement which went out of control and lays bare the meticulous planning which went into the demolition. It shows the utter disregard for the Indian constitution by the BJP and the Sangh Parivar.

"However, the report fails to pinpoint the failure of the Centre to take action at the appropriate time to prevent such a crime...By giving a virtual clean chit to the then Central Government, the Commission has laid itself open to the charge of a political bias," it said in a statement here.

"The Action Taken Report (ATR) placed by the government on the basis of some of the Commission's recommendations is weak and inadequate.

"It displays a lack of political will to bring those responsible to justice," the party said.

Citing the example of the outcome of the findings of the Sri Krishna Commission (that probed into the 1992 serial blasts in Mumbai), the party said, those who have been indicted by Commissions for communal violence have got off scot-free.
