This chapter discusses the Supreme Court judgment on the Babri Masjid demolition. Chief Justice M. N. Venkatachaliah in an interview a week after his retirement exulted in the conviction of former UP Chief Minister Kalyan Singh for contempt of court on 24 October 1994. However, the truth is that despite Kalyan Singh's violation of court orders, he was allowed to go free, and he proceeded with his plan to demolish the mosque.
