Indicted by the Liberhan Commission report as one of those responsible for the Babri Masjid demolition, Uma Bharti on Tuesday said she takes moral responsibility for the incident but will fight it legally as she can easily prove that she had no hand in the destruction of the mosque.

“Definitely I take the moral responsibility for whatever happened that day (December 6, 1992) because I also gave a call to people to come there and gather there... but legally I will fight against it because I don’t hold myself responsible (for destruction of the mosque),” the former BJP leader said.

She said she was proud to be a part of the ‘Ram Janmbhoomi movement.’

“I will have every logic, which will protect me and prove that I have no hand in that destruction. But even then I will say I take the moral responsibility. I take pride in participating in the ‘Ram Janmbhoomi movement’,” Ms. Bharti said.

She said she holds three systems responsible for the incident — “the undue delay by the judicial system of the country to decide who is the real owner of the disputed land.

“Second, the insensitivity of the bureaucracy and third, the politics related to minority”.
