To counter VHP propaganda, the committee is planning to publish selected documents in book form, pamphlets and leaflets in English,Urdu and Hindi.
The convener seemed satisfied with the proceedings of the Special Bench and the Liberhan Commission. He hoped that despite its reluctance and refusal to revise the notification, the Uttar Pradesh Government may be orderd by the Supreme Court to do so.The amendment to the case withdrawing the Muslim claim on the 6-7 acres of the wakf land adjacent to the Babri Masjid did not go well with the committee and it requested the AIMPLB to take appropriate action to remedy it.
The committee also called upon the Centre to prosecute the VHP leaders, who were challenging the rule of law and threatening to start construction of temple on or near the Babri Masjid disputed site.
Annual accounts for 2001-2002 were placed before the committee, which passed it.
