the Babri Masjid, political parties today traded charges, with

The 17th anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition on Sunday passed off peacefully barring sporadic protests by Hindu and Muslim activists and arrest of over 600 people in Chennai and Ayodhya to maintain law and order.
The much-talked about Liberhan
Commission report will be discussed in Parliament next week
with the Lok Sabha taking up the matter on December 9 and 10,
soon after the 17th anniversary of demolition of Babri Masjid.
Bihar CM Nitish Kumar accused the Congress of being "responsible" for the demolition of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, saying the Liberhan Commission that probed the incident should have indicted the party and its leaders.
