Hassan district unit of the Popular Front of India (PFI) here on Thursday staged a protest demanding reconstruction of Babri Masjid, which was demolished in 1992, and implementation of the recommendations of the Liberhan Ayodhya Commission. The PFI activists demanded that those guilty of demolishing the Babri Masjid should be punished as per the law.

Fareed, president of the district unit of the PFI, in his memorandum, addressed to President Pranab Mukherjee, said that many leaders of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bharatiya Janata Party were accused of hatching a conspiracy to demolish the masjid. However, they had not been brought to book.
