The fifth and sixth days of June which remind the tragic memory of India’s Operation Blue Star launched on the Golden Temple, the holiest shrine of the Sikhs in 1984 have come at a time when Pakistan’s armed forces have been conducting Malakand operations against the Taliban. It looks interesting to compare the phenomena and other dimensions of these opertions.

The main aim of the Operation Blue Star led by Indian General Kuldip Singh Brar was to arrest Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the only spititual leader who had been boldly fighting for the genuine rights of Sikhs. Indian government which never tried to negotaiate with the Sikh leader had signed no peace agreement with him or the Sikh community, while activities of Bhindranwale were only confined to the Golden Temple. As regards Pak military operations, Swat peace accord was signed on February 15 this year between the government and the militants led by Sufi Muhammad. Meanwhile, National Assembly passed the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation which was also signed by Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari. While implementing it, two Qazi courts were appointed in the Malakand Division. But, by setting aside the terms of the peace pact, the Taliban equipped with heavy weapons started making checkpoints, strengthening their position in Swat and Dir. They not only refused to renounce arms, but even entered Bumer in open violations of the peace agreement.

Sikhs who were fighting for their political rights never forced the people of their community or those of the other sects to join them. They did not employ coervcive methods by creating fear among the people in order to get their sympathies. They never tried to impose their religious values over other regions of India by extending their influence. Neither, they did involve themselves in criminal activities to raise funds for their stuggle of indepedence. People of their religious community in India and abroad voluntariry supported their stand, providing them with funds. On the other side, Taliban re-initiated their previous practice of beheadings, kidnappings, attacks on the checkposts of the security forces etc.

In the past four years, in FATA and other regions of our country, Taliban’s various inhuman tactics such as attacks on government buildings, girls school, video shops and police stations, using car suicide bombers had not only been destabilizing Pakistan but also amounted to anti-social activities. Particularly in some tribal areas, these militant leaders had created state within the state, and have been involved in a number of crimes such as killing the moderate dissidents and fuelling sectarianism as noted in Khyber Agency and Kurram Agency where more than 2000 people died in the last two years. They were pitching Sunni Muslims against the minority Shia. In the 2008, with the open destruction of over 200 girls schools in the Swat Valley, these insurgents discouraged women’s education, keeping them exploitable. Money earned through drug-smuggling, hostage-taking for ransom and even car-snatching was justified to wage their holly war.

However, violation of Swat peace agreement and their advances beyond Swat triggered a great deal of panic among the local population. It was in these circumstances that the military operations were re-conducted to restore peace in these affected areas, and to get rid the inncocent people of the brutalities of the Taliban. It was due to the transgressions and atrocities of these insurgents that overwhelming public, belonging to every province of Pakistan have been supporting the ongoing military operations as majority of the people are against the Taliban style of Sharia. Besides backing these operations through various political and religious conventions organized in Lahore, Islamabad and other areas of the country intermittently, on May 18 this year, an all-parties conference (APC) vowed to unite the nation against insurgency in Malakand and Swat, pledging to end terror. Especially, member of the civil societies and religious scholars from the Frontier Province also unanimously favoured the military operations, and no massive protests were witnessed against these operations.

Unlike the Taliban, Sikhs did not engage themselves in anti-social activities, inciting the people for suicide attacks or sectarian violence. Severe protests had been lodged by the Sikhs against Indian military Operation Blue Star inside and outside India.

History proves that any genuine movement includes majoriy of the people of that community, race and sect. In this context, struggle of Sikhs had become voice of the majoriy of their people before and after the operation at the Golden Temple.

Nevertheless, on June 5 and June 6, The Indian Army supported by armoured vehicles and heavy weapons broke all the records of state terrorism through that barbaric military operation. At that time, there were only 251 Sikhs inside the complex to protect the Golden Temple, their sacred shrine by resisting Indian well-trained army. Notably, in those days, majority of the Sikhs were coming to Golden Temple to celebrate Martyr day of Guru Arjan Dev Ji.

Indian military troops, while using tanks, destroyed the Akaal Takhat Sahib, which is right in front of the Golden Temple. On June 6, when all Sikh fighters were martyred along with Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, army soldiers entered the temple with their shoes by deliberately neglecting the holiness of the Shrine. When Indian troops came to know that only 251 men had stopped them from entering the temple for many days, they started murdering even those innocent Sikhs who had come there to visit the Temple. The sole aim behind was to hide their humiliation.

In this regard, Ramnarain Kumar and Georg Sieberer in their book, The Sikh Struggle, write: “The Army killed every Sikh who could be found inside the temple complex. They were hauled out of the rooms, brought to corridors on the circumference of the temple and with their hands tied behind their back, were shot in cold blood. Among the victims were many old men women and children.”

Past records indicate that all the visitors were locked up in the rooms for two days without any food, water and electricity, starving them to death. And the Golden Temple remained under the army control for many a month. The cruelty of the Operation Blue Star was not confined to the Golden Temple only. Indian armed forces simultaneously attacked 40 other historical Gurdwaras all over Punjab.

When Sikhs in other states came to know about the desecration of the Golden Temple and genocide of their brethren, they quickly left for Punjab. Focusing their attention on Sikh military, Indian rulers tried to stop them before they could reach Punjab. Many Sikhs were assassinated on the way.

According to an estimate, about 50,000 Sikhs were killed within a few days including tourists. The whole Amritsar city was sealed and was burnt. Sikh’s shops were looted and their houses were set ablaze by Hindu mobs backed by Indian intelligence agency, RAW. In most of the cases, Sikh women were dishonored and some persons were also burnt alive.

Another tragic dimension of the military operation is that historical Sikh artifacts entailing all the literature written by the Gurus was taken away by the army and was also set ablaze.

In November of 1984, two dedicated Sikhs who were posted at Premier Indira Gandhi’s residence in New Delhi, assassinated her. Then Hindu riots erupted in the capital and other cities in which more then 15,000 Sikhs were killed in broad daylight by the supporters of Indira while police watched silently providing the Hindus with free hand to massacre Sikhs.

To maintain their control on the Golden Temple, another attack was launched on the Temple in 1987, called, namely Operation Black Thunder. In that respect, quite number of people of Sikh community was murdered. According to a report, many trucks were loaded with dead bodies and all were burned with kerosene oil. Afterwards, Operation Woodrose and Operation Black Thunder II were conducted against the Sikh community, which also assassinated them extra-judicially.

The attack on Golden Temple and genocide of Sikhs only accelerated the liberation movement for Khalistan as Bhindrenwale became a folk hero in giving a greater inspiration to freedom fighters. After these barbaric operations, Sikhs organized themselves into an armed power in order to fight the Indian state terrorism. Sikhs who have been living all over the world keep the movement of Khalistan alive.

Finally, difference in Indian and Pak military operations can be witnessed from the fact that no Sikhs were annoyed with other Sikhs in connection with their struggle. Neither majority of Sikhs left the province of Punjab or Amritsar. But on the other side, 2.5 million people have so far left Malkanad Division and other adjoining regions. They have took sigh of relief, describing the atrocities of the Taliban, they faced. And majority of the Pakhtoons strongly support the Pak military operations.

Sikh Community Waiting for Justice

Pakistan News PakTribune.Com

Few days back hundred of emails have been received by me in response to an article “Pitching Sikhs against Muslims “written by me. One email out of these mails has forced me to present it for the consumption of my readers and attention of Indian newly elected Prime Minister DR. Manmohan Singh. The characters of the email have been changed for obvious reasons of hiding the identity of the source. The email reveled that eighty year’s old age Mrs. Balwant Singh of Amirtsar is still waiting for her 12 years son Balbir Singh who went to bazaar for buying bread (Chappaties) for her but fired by the soldier of Indian force. She doesn’t know that her son proceeded to bliss and will never come back .Whosoever invites respectable lady, she always says that “Merya Balbir Hawya Ga Te Akhtaya Khana Khanwa Gain “(let the Balibir come, then will have meal together). After this she picks up the photo graph of her son and starts kissing him madly. At times, starts crying or giggling suddenly. The email’ senders further added that condition of Balwant Core made me sad and sob. Till the time he stayed there, she was keep on asking him that go to Bazaar and call her Balbir.

The email made my day sad too and reminded me never ending Indian state terrorism against minorities. The Indian brutality against minorities depicts the Barbarian era. A famous Indian Sikh scholar Balbir Singh Sooch truly said that “Terrorism has always an end but the State Terrorism never ends. If terrorists don’t wish to be humans then it is better for them to be with the State.” Lt Col Prohit and his comrades are the exact translation of the mentioned quotation. These terrorists were involved in storming militancy with the support of their mother agency RAW.

Hindu rulers and their intelligence agencies have always tried to divert the world attention from the internal communal violence through targeting her neighbouring countries. Recently, The Indian Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh showed his concern over the displacement of 35 Sikhs Pakistani citizens living in Orakzai Agency were allegedly asked by Taliban militants to pay “Jaziya” for their protection otherwise leave the agency . But while showing concern Manmohan Jee has forgotten those two millions Sikh families which have been victimized on June 6, 1984. The wounds of the innocents Sikhs will keep on refreshing on June 6, each year and has ever lasting effects of the grieved families. Nobody’s knows that when Indian government will be able to control her notorious agency RAW from playing with the lives of minorities. The extremists Hindu Taliban are being backed by the wicked politicians of ruling party. They are making colossal efforts of elimination of Sikhs by using tactics of spreading hatred effects between Muslims and Sikhs too. The basic aim of government agencies always revolved to create rift between the Muslims and Sikhs since riots between them will provide chances to Extremists Hindu of killing two birds with one stone.


Surinder Malik


Hindu was the only beneficiary community since 1947 riots. They prepared the plot to eliminate Sikhs and Muslims communities because of their self generated fear of emerging of two more future states i.e. Muslim Bengal and Kalistan. Hindus extremists have strong desire to convert India into “Maha Bharat “, which would be pure Hindu State. The Extremists Hindu groups present in CBI and RAW are facilitating Hindu Taliban and are strongly in the opinion that either minorities living in India, should convert themselves into Hindu or just leave the region. That is the reasons Indian intelligence agencies are busy in defaming Sikhs and others minorities.


Brij Mohan Lal


In this connection a book “Soft target” written by two Canadian Journalists (Mr. Zuhair Kashmeri Brian McAndrew) unveiled the RAW conspiracy against Sikhs. The book reveal that Indian intelligence blows its own Air India plane out of the skies over international waters to denigrate the Sikh nation and to muffle the voice of freedom for its reclamation of lost Sikh Sovereignty. In this tragic act of terrorism 329 people, mostly Canadians have been murdered through bombing. This act of terrorism was planed and implemented by RAW in June 1985. The blowing of the aircraft was planned at the occasion of first anniversary of Golden Temple and Holocausts of Sikhs. Brij Mohan Lal and Surinder Malik were intelligence agents who were stationed in Canada at that time. The former Chief of Indian Intelligence Bureau was the mastermind & member of RSS, involved in the Air India Plane bombing. His mission was to Sabotaged & defamed Sikhs in Canada and all over the world. Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) was the agency that did a tremendous job of removing the curtain from the scene. The canadain agency chased the culprits’ right to the Indian embassy and consulates and ultimately alleged Ripudaman Singh Malik, 58, and Ajaib Singh Bagri, 55 – were acquitted by the Canadian judge from the charges of murder of 331 persons of Air India Bombing.


Maloy Krishna Dhar
Indian Intelligence Agent & The former Chief of Indian Intelligence Bureau


Thus it was proved that Indian security forces and its intelligence agencies found slaughtering Sikhs nation with a view to suppress their demands of Khlistan and reducing their overall population. The climax of Indian brutality was the Operation Blue Star conducted against Golden Temple from 4- 6 June 1984. Once the Military attacked on the holiest shrine of the Sikh religion simultaneously 38 other Sikh temples were also been embattled throughout Punjab. Over 20,000 Sikhs were murdered in these attacks. The assault in Golden Temple was without any warning. Heavy artillery, tanks, Howtziwer guns, and other mechanized weapons have been used against the innocent people. Surprisingly, the attack coincided with the religious celebrations on the occasion of the birthday of the Fifth Guru of the Sikhs. Guru Arian Dev himself was martyred while defending the dignity of the Sikhs.

Two main conclusions emerge from this attack, firstly to humiliate the highest spiritual leader of Sikhs and secondly terrorizing, crushing Sikh nation, their dignities and their struggle for Khalistan Movement. According to the Amenity International Report of May 28, 2008 more than 250,000 Sikhs have been eliminated / tortured by Indian governments since 14 years. The report further mentioned that there had been gross violations of human rights, including Nandigram, in west Bengal, Kashmir and other parts of the India. It is notable here that since 1989 Indian forces and intelligence agencies have murdered more than 200,000 innocent Muslims including Kashmiris. 6300 women have been raped in various overt and covert methods of state terrorism.

Sikhs want that the government should have taken actions against EX Minister Tytler, But Indian intelligence agencies RAW and CBI have declared him neat and clean in their biased investigations. Again in 2000, at the occasion of former US President Clinton’s visit Indian intelligence agencies planned riots against Sikhs in which 38 Sikhs have been killed and blamed was put on the local Muslims. But good luck to the Muslims, that Sikhs leaders came to know the actual plan and they rejected the phenomena of blaming Muslims in anti Sikhs riots. The Sikhs read the underline of the said incident and never got up against Muslims in India. Anyhow, almost complete Hindu politicians have cunning attitude toward the Sikh nation. Hindu played “Blood Holly’ with the Sikhs when Late Prime Minister Indra Gandhi was murdered. The famous Ex Minister Tytler sent an email to all locals Hindus leadership revealing that Khoon Ka Badla Khoon Se Lenge “.

Thus, killing of Sikhs were started, their property was looted, women were raped, innocents children and Sikhs were dragged out of their houses and killed, Sikh’s shops/houses looted and then burnt. As per reliable resourced Over 3000, (some quote as high as 5000+) Sikhs killed in three days. The worst episode was run on June 6, 1984. The point to be noted here that Manmohan Sing (son of Sikh nation) failed to provide justice and has never tried to even console his community. The Prime Minster should know that there are many Mrs. Balwant Singh who are still waiting for their Balbir Singh on meals without knowing that they are no more there and killed by Indian Army and security forces. These poor, innocent families are waiting for the justice from so called secular government which unfortunately herself found involve in elimination of Sikhs. The enthusiasm, sincerity, loyalty of Sikhs nationalists towards their cause do dictates that emerging of Kahlistan on the world map is not far away.

Khalistan movement is started by Sikh diaspora which was supported by Pakistani ISI to break apart Punjab from India. Here are some excerpts on Khalistani movement from B. Raman's analysis.

A short description on Khalistani movement

The terrorism in Punjab in support of the creation of an independent Khalistan was initiated in 1981 under the inspiration and instigation of some members of the Sikh diaspora in Canada, the USA, the UK and the then West Germany with the help of some adherents from the local Sikh community in Punjab. The movement could not gain even a modicum of international sympathy due to the actions of the terrorists belonging to the diaspora in organising acts of terrorism in foreign territory and against foreign nationals such as the blowing up of the Kanishka aircraft of Air India off the Irish coast and the explosion at the Narita airport of Tokyo in 1985 and the failed attempt to assassinate the Indian Ambassador to Bucharest and the kidnapping of Liviu Radu, a Romanian diplomat posted in New Delhi, in 1991. The terrorists failed to win much popular support in Punjab and their activities were brought under control by the excellent work done by the Punjab Police under the able leadership of K.P.S.Gill.
Longer Description of Khalistani movement

The advent of the late Zia-ul-Haq to power in 1977 saw the ISI encouraging the emergence of new extremist leaders in the Sikh community. The most important of them were Ganga Singh Dhillon of the Nankana Sahib Foundation, Washington, and Gajender Singh of the Dal Khalsa. Zia developed a strong dislike for Chohan and preferred Dhillon, whose second wife and Zia's wife had studied together in a school in Nairobi and had thus become close friends. During Zia's visits to Washington, his daughter, who was mentally handicapped, used to stay with the Dhillons, who arranged for her medical treatment. The resulting close friendship between the two families led to Zia ordering the ISI to shift its assistance to Dhillon and those recommended by him. Gajender Singh came into contact with the ISI through the intermediary of Dhillon.

The ISI's training of Dal Khalsa activists in Pakistani camps started in 1980 and this assistance was extended in subsequent years to the recruits of other organisations also such as the Babbar Khalsa, the International Sikh Youth Federation (ISYF), the Khalistan Commando Force (KCF) etc. Between 1981 and 1984, the Dal Khalsa, acting either alone or in co-operation with other groups, hijacked five aircraft of the Indian Airlines to Lahore--one each in 1981 and 1984 and three in 1982. The plane of 1981 was allowed by the Pakistani authorities to land in Lahore where they terminated the hijacking and ostensibly arrested Gajender Singh and his associates, but they did not keep them in jail. They allowed them to stay in the Nankana Sahib gurudwara of Lahore and guide, from there, the activities of the Dal Khalsa in the Punjab.

The three planes hijacked in 1982 were denied permission to land in Lahore and returned to Amritsar, where the hijacking was terminated by the Indian authorities. The plane hijacked in 1984 was allowed to land in Lahore and, subsequently, the Pakistani authorities persuaded the hijackers to take it to Dubai where the hijacking was terminated. At Lahore, the ISI found that the hijackers had only a toy pistol. It, therefore, gave them a German pistol with ammunition. The pistol was seized from the hijackers by the Dubai authorities and handed over to the Govt. of India. On a reference, the German authorities certified that the pistol was part of a consignment supplied to the Pakistan Government by the German manufacturers.

The matter was taken up by the Govt. of India with the Reagan Administration. It led to two results. First, Gajender Singh and his associates were removed from the Nankana Sahib to the Lahore jail, tried and sentenced to imprisonment, on the completion of which they were expelled from Pakistan. Second, all hijackings by Pakistan-sponsored terrorist groups ceased till the recent hijacking of an IA plane by the Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HUM).

However, this had no impact on the continued training of Sikh extremists belonging to different organisations in Pakistani camps and the supply of arms and ammunition to them. In fact, this was stepped up after the raid on the Golden Temple in Amritsar by the Army under Operation Blue Star in June 1984. Many leaders of the Sikh terrorist organisations were allowed to take up residence in Lahore and co-ordinate from there the terrorist activities of their organisations in Punjab.

pak tribune like rupee news is pure propaganda.

"The main aim of the Operation Blue Star led by Indian General Kuldip Singh Brar was to arrest Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, the only spititual leader who had been boldly fighting for the genuine rights of Sikhs."

ROFLMAO.

I think it would be better to start a new thread on Khalistan, rather than rely on BS. This thread is closed.
