    The French novelist and playwright Honoré de Balzac is believed to have said – “Behind every great fortune lies a great crime.”

    Behind the astonishing spurt in the political fortune of BJP lies its top leadership’s despicable act of conspiring, planning and then openly and actively participating in the demolition of Babri Masjid. Regretfully our country’s pompous and self-exalted justice (?) system, which loves to take suo moto action on petty matters, failed miserably to take any action against these distinguished criminals, who with arrogance and swagger marched on and on, and ultimately appropriated the government.
