June 02, 2024

Sikh community across India and world over is observing today the 39th anniversary of the Indian army's assault on Golden Temple, their holiest shrine in Amritsar. A report released by Kashmir Media Service, today said Operation Blue Star’, the code name of Indian army’s 1984 assault on Golden Temple was a brazen act of state-sponsored terrorism against Sikh community. Indian army backed by tanks and artillery guns massacred thousands of Sikhs including pilgrims during its attack on the Golden Temple.

The Sikhs’ holiest shrine was also reduced to rubble during the assault. The report maintained that even after 39 years, the victims of ‘Operation Blue Star’ and those killed in the ensuing bloody chain of anti-Sikh riots are still awaiting justice. The report said that ‘Operation Blue Star’ was a deliberate move not only to kill Sikhs but also to desecrate their holiest religious place. The report pointed out that brave people of the Sikh community are determined not to rest until they achieve a separate Khalistan and they will continue their fight against Hindutva hegemony and they will not let Modi’s hegemonic designs succeed, come what may.
