‘Khalistan Zindabad’ slogans raised in Golden Temple on Operation Bluestar anniversary

Amritsar, June 6: ‘Khalistan Zindabad’ slogans were raised in Golden Temple on the 33rd anniversary of the Operation Bluestar on Tuesday.

Every year on this day, Sikhs gather at the Golden Temple to celebrate the anniversary of Operation Blue Star. Earlier in 2015, a group of young Sikhs wearing Bhindranwale T-shirts emblazoned with slogans such as “NEVER FORGET 1984” were also seen at the Temple.

Operation Blue Star was a military operation spearheaded by former prime minister Indira Gandhi which held between June 1 and June 6, 1984. The operation was led to flush out militant religious leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and his militant armed followers from the Harmandir Sahib Complex in Amritsar. Tanks and troops had fired at the Akal Takht to get Bhindranwale, who was killed that day along with many of his followers.

The assassination of Indira Gandhi was the most notable event linked to the Operation Blue Star. Indira Gandhi was assassinated on October 31, 1984, four months after the Operation Blue Star. The Khalistan Movement originally started in the early 1940’s and 50’s, but the movement was most popular in the 1970s and 1980s. Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, who was the leader of the Damdami Taksal, was another important factor which led towards Operation Blue Star.
