    Two groups of Sikhs clashed with swords and sticks inside the Golden Temple on Friday, turning the faith’s holiest shrine into a virtual battlefield during a ceremony to mark 30 years of a controversial army operation on the premises that killed hundreds of people.

    The clash, which occurred early in the morning while prayers were being offered to those killed in Operation Blue Star, underlined lingering tensions among various Sikh groups that remain divided over a decades-old demand for a separate homeland for followers of the faith called Khalistan.

    Golden Temple officials said at least 12 people sustained injuries in the violence. Jatinder Singh Aulakh, police commissioner of Amritsar, where the Golden Temple is located, said 19 people had been detained.
