guruhargobindsahibgurdwaracov On August 10th 1986 General Arun Vaidya, the architect of Operation Bluestar was shot to death by Harjinder Singh Jinda and Sukhdev Singh Sukha, while he was driving his car home from the market. General Arun Vadiya was the Chief of the Indian Army who ordered the attack on the holiest of the holy Sikh shrines at Amritsar and elsewhere in Punjab during Operation Bluestar. He had moved to Pune after his retirement from the army. According to the police, the assailants pulled up next to his car on motor scooters and fired eight or nine shots into the car. Vaidya reportedly died instantly of head and neck wounds.

Operation Woodrose was a military operation carried out by the Indira Gandhi-led Indian government in the months after Operation Blue Star to “prevent the outbreak of widespread public protest” in the state of Punjab.The government arrested various political leaders, and banned the All India Sikh Students Federation, a large students’ union. In addition, the Indian Army conducted operations in the countryside during which thousands of Sikhs, overwhelmingly young men, were detained for interrogation and in many cases subsequently tortured or killed. After the operation, the central government was criticized for using “draconian legislation” to repress a minority community.

Although this operation was said to be aimed at eradicating the presence freedom fighting groups in the state, thousands of innocent Sikh civilians were targeted by the Government. According to estimates published by Inderjit Singh Jaijee, approximately 8,000 individuals were reported as missing as a result of Army operations during this period.

To allow for the legality of the operation, the states of Punjab and Chandigarh had been declared by the Indian government as ‘disturbed areas’ by the enactment of the Punjab Chandigarh Disturbed Area Act 1983. At the same time, the Army was given unprecedented powers to detain and arrest civilians through the enactment of the Armed Forces (Punjab and Chandigarh) Act 1983. The act empowered any commissioned, warrant or non-commissioned officer of the Army if “of opinion that it is necessary so to do for the maintenance of public order, after giving such due warning as he may consider necessary, fire upon or otherwise use forces, even to the causing of death.” The act also allowed such an officer to “arrest, without warrant, any person who has committed a cognizable offence or against whom a reasonable suspicion exists that he has committed or is about to commit a cognizable offence”.

infamous_arts The Harmandir Sahib has constantly been a threat to Governments and Regimes.

Here sits a Golden Lotus that floats on the waves of nector, reverberating Truth.
Depiction of the Sikh Reference Library burning. They didn't go into the
Harmandir Sahib complex for 1 man. They went in to destroy the Idea and mentality of Sikhi. That the truth & just the Khalsa deliver is something the Indian Government cannot tolerate. To steal our heritage and inflict wounds that still have not healed. We are still the wounded lion surrounded by its hunters, gasping for help.
Raj Bina Dharam nehi chalee, Bina Dharam sab dhale male.

Without Sovereignty Sikhi cannot Flourish, Without Sikhi all is lost

ravandhanota "The purpose of writing this book is twofold. Firstly, it is to recall and commemorate the outstanding contribution made by Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale who had raised the emaciated spirit of the Khalsa. Secondly, it is for the loving memory of Sant Bhindranwale who had made an unparalleled and unique sacrifice in defence of the faith and the philosophy of the Khalsa so fondly created and nourished by Guru Gobind Singh.

I am deeply pained to observe that those leaders whose role during the Bhindranwale time was anti-panthic, have now come to the forefront to farcically celebrate this auspicious event. And none of these failed leaders has bothered to remember or even mention his name.
This book is being published on this auspicious occasion to refresh and revive the forgotten memory of the gallant defender." A.R. Darshi Ex. P.C.S. Officer (now retired as Joint secretary Punjab Govt)

sikhphotography_ June 10th 1984... Last Sikh fighters are saheed today, the entire Golden Temple Complex is under complete occupation and army control and is only returned Sikhs following protests on October 1st 1984. On the 10th June 1984 after 10 days of terror, the guns finally fell silent. The last Sikh fighters who had been holding out from the 1st June, were saheed. Giani Puran Singh’s account gives an accurate description of this incident:

infamous_arts On the 10th June 1984 after 10 days of terror, the guns finally fell silent. The last Sikh fighters who had been holding out from the 1st June, were killed. Giani Puran Singh’s account gives an accurate description of this incident: There were 4 Singhs in the basement of the Bunga Jassa Singh Ramgarhia who were giving a tough fight to the forces. They had also pulled down 3 personnel of the army who had ventured too close. The authorities wanted these people to surrender but they wanted a mutually responsible person to mediate. I was then asked to mediate but first of all I asked the army officers of a guarantee that none would be shot only arrested and later law would take its own course. They were not ready for this and wished me to talk to the Brigadier who too was noncommittal. They then asked me to inquire if the three army personnel were alive. The reply received was that no live personnel were there in the basement. At this the Brigadier asked me to leave and that they would themselves deal with them. These men in the basement fought the whole day, the whole night and also the next day when Giani Zail Singh came to visit the ruins of Akaal Takht. Some thought that they had also aimed for Giani but it was not so. These people did not know that Giani was coming. If they knew before hand, they would have definitely put a bullet through the ‘tyrant’ but they were totally cut out from the outside world. A colonel of the commandos attempted to flush out these men in the basement with a gun and light arrangement but as soon as he entered the basement, a burst of LMG wounded him and it was later learnt that he had succumbed to the injuries in the hospital. Two cannons were reemployed to fire at the Bunga, gaping holes were formed on the Parikrama end but the men within were safe. I saw from the roof of Harmandir Sahib that two grenadiers had been put on the grenade shooter and a continuous barrage of grenades was being used but they still survived. Burnt red chilly bags, chilly powder and smoke granades were thrown in; one of them came out to be greeted with a hail of bullets while the others finally were silenced on the 10th. 3mon

  •   gurbaniinspiration Thus, on the 10th June the battle of Amritsar was officially concluded as the guns finally fell silent. The military operation was unprecedented in Indian history, as the might of the Indian Army was unleashed, complete with full fire power and heavy artillery on its own people.
    Government Propaganda
    Following the battle, the government was embarrassed, General K.S Brar on the 2ndJune 1984 had stated that “we shall see to it that they are on their knees in just two hours”; The Sikh Unrest and The Indian State, R.N. Kumar.
    Yet it took 10 days for the army to completely defeat the Sikh fighters. Other than pride, this was damaging for the Indian Government as the operation was supposed to happen under the cover of darkness, or rather a complete media blackout. This would have ensured that no one would have known what happened between the inner walls of the complex.
    However, as the fighting lasted over a week, word began to spread, rumours spread throughout villages in Punjab and army bases across India, which resulted in a huge outpouring of grief and anger from Sikhs across the world.
    Soon after the massacre the government disinformation campaign went into overdrive to create legitimacy for the action. The goal of this disinformation Campaign, according to Subramaniam Swami (Indian politician, academician and an economist) was to ‘make out that the Golden Temple was the haven of criminals, a store of armoury and a citadel of the nation’s dismemberment conspiracy; Creating a Martyr – Imprint (1984), Subramaniam Swami, p 7. 3mon
  •   gurbaniinspiration One of these myths that was propagated by the State media, was that the fighters were highly trained and possessed sophisticated weaponry, courtesy of Pakistan. In regards to this the Daily Telegraph, London (June 15, 1984) wrote, “The Government is now energetically insisting that the Sikh insurrection in the Panjab was a deep-seated conspiracy of a certain foreign power or when pressed, claims that some of the terrorists were trained in Pakistan. This is the first time that such a claim has been made, and it smacks of Mrs Gandhi’s playing the familiar old Pakistan card for all it is worth. After all, there is an election looming on the horizon and a touch of war fever may not do any harm. But in the long run this sort of propaganda will not solve the Panjab’s underlying problems.”
    In regards to the weapons that the Sikh fighters actually had a retired brigadier, then a lieutenant colonel, recalls: “My unit was sent to the Darbar Sahib complex after the Operation was over to assist in post-operation duties. I reached Amritsar on June 10th. On the basis of my personal knowledge, I can say that the government White Paper’s list of arms recovered does not accurately reflect the arms in the possession of the militants. I would put the number of actual combatants on the other side at around 200″; Politics of genocide: Punjab, 1984-1998, Inderjit Singh Jaijee.
    In an essay contributed to “The Punjab Story”, Lieutenant General J.S. Arora writes: “there is a need to correct the picture that has been painted by the media that sophisticated weapons were found inside the Temple..The impression that has been built up in the public mind of foreign governments deliberately arming the terrorists with a view to overthrowing the government is grossly overdone. 3mon
  •   gurbaniinspiration The Government of India reacted in a cynical and dishonourable manner. They disseminated lies through State media, which forms the basis of opinion for many, regarding what happened in Operation Blue Star. One example to illustrate this scheme is two reports from different papers after the aftermath of the attack; the first is a newspaper report from London, while the other is an Indian paper;
    Telegraph London (June 15, 1984) published the following report from David Graves:
    “The Akal Takhat looks like it has been bombed. It looks like a building in Berlin after the War. Every building in the complex had been riddled with bullets and there was still a stench of death in the air.”
    Meanwhile The Times of India (June 10, 1984) headlined on the front page a Press Trust of India report saying, “Terrorists made a desperate attempt to blow up the Akal Takhat, killed a number of men, women and children, and unsuccessfully tried to escape with huge amounts of cash, jewellery and other valuables after their leaders were killed in the action on June 5. The Akal Takhat was not damaged in the Army action.”
    The Government of India also censored and persecuted any journalist or human rights organisation who tried to report the truth, and thus when Citizens for Democracy published a report detailing the “Oppression in Punjab” in 1985, it was banned and confiscated the next day, the authors were arrested and charged with “sedition” (incitement of rebellion against a government;
    http://www.pucl.org/admin/know_pucl.pdf
    Brahma Challeney of the Associated Press (AP) of USA was the only foreign correspondent who managed to stay in Amritsar during the attack, and was one of the first to publish reports that Sikh pilgrims were executed after the attack. For his troubles he was arrested and also charged with sedition. 3mon

The picture was taken from the Sikh 1984 Rally on Sunday 7th June in London. It has been 31 years and the push for justice is getting stronger not only by the years but also day by day. Sarabjit Singh (Rajoana TV) gave a good example when he mentioned that 31 years ago Sant Jarnail Singh Ji said a speech which mentioned the rape of a young Sikh girl in Punjab, beadbi of Guru Granth Sahib Saroops and a Singh becoming shaheed. 31 years later in the past weeks the same thing occurred, a girl was raped on a bus in Punjab, beadbi has happened to saroops again and a Singh has been made shaheed again. What has changed in these 31 years? Sarabjit Singh said that Sant Jarnail Singh could be making the exact same speech today on the stage from 31 years ago, because no difference has changed. The same injustices we suffered 31 years ago are the same injustices occurring today? What are your opinions on how these injustices will stop and what we as a kaum/nation can really do?
