Lok Janshakti Party leader Uma Bharti on Tuesday said she was taking moral responsibility of demolition of the Babri mosque in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992 and described the Liberhan Commission as political document.
"Its purely a political document and wondered time consumed by it. For preparing such a document the Liberhan Commission required 17 years and crores of rupees were spent on it," Bharti, who has been inducted by the Commission, told reporters in Nagpur today.
There was nothing legal and findings could not punish anyone, she said.
"For crores of Hindus, Ram temple was a matter of faith. It was high time senior BJP leader L K Advani should take initiative in resolving the Ram Mandir issue in Ayodhya, she said.
"It was the right time to resolve the issue which has been pending for nearly two decades. For some period of time, the issue can be freezed but can never be buried," she said.
She also expressed her desire to to meet VHP international president Ashok Singhal on the temple issue, as VHP was primarily responsible for uniting the people together for the cause, Bharti said.
Bharti evaded questions on joining BJP and said she will run her party and can even support the BJP on certain issues from outside.
