Police are most brutal everywhere because they are the ones who take the heat first. During Naxal movement in Calcutta in 70s, a whole gen was almost wiped out by police, those who survived were made crippled.

Brute force is the only way to subdue irregulars, Brits used the same tactics against Afgans and they still remember Tamer Lane in streets of Samarkhand.

And there is your justification.

While what happened to in 1984 will always remain a big mark on Indian democracy, history is never one sided. There are always two sides to the story. Bhindranwale while being a revolutionist was also responsible for many killings and also radicalized a normally peaceful Punjab. While what happened to Sikhs in 1984 is shameful, what Bhindranwale would have done to Punjab and India if he was'nt stopped would have been disastrous as well.

Bhindranwale is just another man iconised by the centre's reluctance to devolve power to the states. His militancy could have been avoided easily. IG was his ally for some time.

Indian Political Blunder: Sikh Genocide 1984 by Zehra

General Sinha was the General Officer Commanding Western Command, a prestigious appointment in the early eighties, and was transferred to Delhi as the Vice Chief of Army Staff, with the expectation that he would succeed General K. V. Krishna Rao as the Army Chief.

He was supposed to familiarize himself with the office of the Army Chief. It was a surprise when he was superseded and Lt.-Gen. A. S. Vaidya, the GOC-in-C Eastern Command was appointed as the Chief of Army Staff. After which General S. K. Sinha submitted his resignation. This is a narration by a close associate of Gen Sinha. This all happened in the backdrop of Operation Blue Star.

Wikipedia accounts, Indira Gandhi first asked Lt. Gen. S. K. Sinha, then Vice-Chief of Indian Army, to prepare a position paper for assault on the Golden Temple. Lt. Gen. Sinha advised against any such move, given its sacrilegious nature according to Sikh tradition. He suggested the government adopt an alternative solution. Henceforth, a controversial decision was made to replace him with General Arun Shridhar Vaidya as the Chief of the Indian army. General Vaidya, assisted by Lt. Gen. K Sundarji as Vice-Chief, planned and coordinated Operation Blue Star.

S. K. Sinha had advised the government against the operation. He later criticized the Government's claim that the attack represented a "last resort". He also stated that the operation would have been conducted in an entirely different manner if he had planned it.

He also pointed out that a few days before the Operation; the Home Minister had announced that the troops would not be sent to the Golden Temple. There was no need to issue such statements when the government was to act in a manner contrary to what had been said.

But, the Operation seems to have been in plans much earlier. The General has alleged that the army had been rehearsing the operation in a replica of the Golden Temple at a secret location near Chakrata Cantonment in the Doon Valley.

The timing of Operation Blue Star coincided with a Sikh religious day, the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev, the founder of the Golden Temple. Sikhs from all over the world visit the temple on this day. Many Sikhs view the timing and attack by the Indian Army as an attempt to inflict maximum casualties on Sikhs and demoralise them, and the government is in turn blamed for the inflated number of civilian dead for choosing to attack on this day.

Mark Tully in his dispatches during and just after the bloody massacre of Sikh community in 1984 states: even if the arguments against a siege are accepted, they don’t justify the army’s decision to mount the operation while Sikhs were celebrating the anniversary of the martyrdom of Guru Arjan, who had built the Golden Temple and compiled the Guru Granth Sahib. This inevitably compounded Sikh anger about the operation. It also meant that the temple complex was particularly crowded and this was why so many civilians were killed.
The Sikh community's anger and suffering was further increased by comments from leading newspaper editors, such as Ramnath Goenka, terming the operation as "A greater victory than the win over Bangladesh, this is the greatest victory of Mrs. Gandhi".

Indira Gandhi could have delayed action against Bhindranwale but she realised voters were beginning to think she lacked the will to act. In search of political gain, countless Sikhs were murdered and no one was held accountable.

The only solution :

A struggle has started to make Khalistan an Independent country :

Chief of Khalistan Movement, Dr. Amarjit Singh has sought Pakistan's support for the liberation of Khalistan.

A month ago, I had a talk with a senior Sardarjee who was politically active in India. He had very positive opinion about Babar Khalsa (Sikh militant movement against India) and said "We are being pinched by Modi Government".

If Pakistan back Sikhs, they may well create another Kashmir like situation for India and make it impossible to curb their voice for freedom as well. Modi and the group of jokers have ripped Indian social fabric across and apart. Why would Pakistan not take benefit of all these situation?


very emotional :

Hindus killing of Sikhs

Reflecting on the illegal killing and abductions of Sikh youth, Amarjit revealed that after operation “Woodrose” in 1984, Sikh locals aged between18-35 were abducted and no human rights organizations were allowed entry to inspect the atrocities committed by Indian forces but according to rough estimates almost one lac fifty thousand people were killed in the operation.

He said that after the assassination of Indira Gandhi in Delhi, as many as seven to eight thousand Sikhs were burned to death that led to armed resistance against the Hindu regime.

The Sikh leader maintained that Hinduism in its spirit is not a religion, it’s a mythology and mythology is based on imaginations. Its true.
