Here are excerpts from my book on Operation Bluse star and i picked up this issue and myself a firm believer that Indira attacked by having animosity with Sikh community. She was a Mogul and the same blood was inherited in her veins, Just see what i wrote. It already in the press, delayed due to lock down. Now it may come out in the end of june 2020;
While writing this book and collecting the horrific stories relating to army invasion on Gurudwaras in Panjab, I came to know about 40+ Gurudwaras invaded by army but its detail could not be collected. Therefore despite our best efforts we are unable to give you a detailed report on killing of innocent Sikhs in other Gurudwaras by this brutal, biased force which entered in gurudwaras not only to kill the Sikhs but to teach a lesson to brave Sikhs on patriotism by suppressing them forever.
And when searching on attacks on Gurudwaras other than the Golden Temple or Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, we could find only one eye witness account report on Gurudwara Dukh Niwaran Sahib, Patiala which was penned down by Mallika kaur, a renowned writer, lawyer in US. We are grateful to her and republishing her report in her own words. We fully agree with the contents given in this report as being a Sikh youth in 1984, the writer of book was also aware of it. Many other eye witnesses have also given their account but unfortunately while writing this book, we missed to recollect them.
As 100,000 Army men had sealed Amritsar, Punjab by June 1, 1984, worshipers and visitors were trapped not only inside Darbar Sahib, but also in other gurudwaras (prayer centers and community centers) hundreds of kilometers away from Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwala — against whom there was no arrest warrant or legal case at the time.
Indira, her Mogul background and result of her animosity with Sikh nation;
After 35 years of Operation Blue star when we watch closely the reasons of this attack as it was not planned upon the Supreme seat of Sikh faith and a world famous Sikh shrine where nine out of ten Sikh Guru blessed the sacred place of worship but more than 40 other Gurudwaras (Sikh religious places of worship) were also attacked simultaneously at the same time.
No doubt army was sent by than Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi but the decision to invade this holiest shrine was not taken over in a night. It was on cards for the past many years. Lt. Gen. (No 2 to GOC in C) SK Sinha revealed in his book ‘Last Resorts’ that the Indian army was giving training to its soldiers on a replica of Darbar Sahib at Chakrata, 90 kms away from Dehra Dun, presently the capitol of Uttrakhand province in northern India. It proves a disastrous plan was already planned by Indira Gandhi and the senior army officers were also taken into confidence to implement it.
The govt of India stated that the army was sent to flush out the terrorists at Darbar Sahib in Amritsar. The alleged terrorists were none other than devoted Sikhs who made Akal Takhat to provide safety to a holy man Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwala who had taken shelter in Akal Takhat to avoid any direct clash with Panjab police whose officers wanted Sant ji be taken into custody to settle personal scores. Before this there had been many clashes with police in past. His base at Chowk Mehta was also raided by police in past and few Sikh youths lost their lives in indiscriminate and provocative police firing. The Sant came in picture when the Nirankari Mission killed 13 innocent, unarmed Sikhs in Amritsar but the master of cult was given safe escape to adjoining state Haryana, no action on gruesome murders of 13 Sikhs was taken by Panjab, even the court case was shifted to Karnal, a city of Haryana in which the master of Nirankari faith and his armed men were acquitted from all charges. This fuelled in fire and Sant too started wearing weapons, copying the master of Nirankari cult.
Before this Sikhs had never thought if Indira Gandhi be having any animosity with them, they also supported Indira in 1980 elections to mark a win. But soon her real face was exposed in-between 1978-1984. In 1982, Shiromani Akali Dal had passed Anandpur Resolution giving more rights to states like Federal structure of USA. Before this it was very common for Indira Gandhi to uproot any state govt. by misusing Article 356 of Constitution of India, ruled by other than Congress party, falsely defaming the state on failure of Law and Order. But if Anandpur Resolution had been accepted by Indira and implemented, the states could prosper without any fear of interference by central govt. at Delhi.
Indira refused to implement this Anandpur Resolution as it could end her interference in state matters. Shiromani Akali Dal started DHARAM YUDH MORCHA or to be called a protest to pursue center. Daily arrests begun and SAD (Shiromani Akali Dal) started sending groups of 100 people to be arrested daily. It appears now that Indira shattered of this wave against her and she immediately decided to teach a lesson to Sikhs who earlier had opposed similarly during her Emergency rule. Indira Gandhi had imposed emergency in 1975 after she was barred to contest any election for 6 years by Allahabad High Court. She arrested every leader of opposition, even the Narendra Modi, now PM of India had run away in guise of a Sikh to hide himself escaping his arrest. Only the Sikhs were there to oppose her dictatorship rule of emergency. Therefore she finally decided to avenge with Sikhs and thus it was necessary to use army to suppress a martial nation.
Hence she took her loyal and trustworthy senior army officers in confidence and made a diabolical plan to attack the holiest shrine in which the Shiromani Akali Dal and the mini Parliament of Sikh nation- Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) having offices and function their political moves from there and soon army started giving training to soldiers at a safest place, a base for training army and para military forces for high altitude at Chakrata near Dehra Dun which was earlier a hill station but in 1962 when India was attacked by China, it was occupied by army and converted into a training center for high altitude training.
Therefore Sikhs could not get any information of this disastrous and diabolical plan, they were purely Indian by heart until India attacked their holiest shrine in June 1984.
When the Sikh intelligentsia looked back in past, they found out the missing joints of the broken chains on attack on Darbar Sahib. They were amazed to see that Indira had animosity with Sikhs for decades as she was not a Hindu but converted Muslim and loyal to Babur than Sikh Gurus. It was unbelievable but true.
Former Foreign Minister K Natwar Singh made an interesting revelation about Indira Gandhi's affinity to the Mughals in his book “Profile and Letters” (ISBN: 8129102358). It states that- In 1968 Indira Gandhi as the Prime Minister of India went on an official visit to Afghanistan. Natwar Singh accompanied her as an IFS officer in duty. After having completed the day's long engagements, Indira Gandhi wanted to go out for a ride in the evening. After going a long distance in the car, Indira Gandhi wanted to visit Babur's burial place, though this was not included in the itinerary. The Afghan security officials tried to dissuade her, but she was adamant. In the end she went to that burial place. It was a deserted place. She went before Babur's grave, stood there for a few minutes with head bent down in reverence. Natwar Singh stood behind her. When Indira had finished her prayers, she turned back and told Singh “Today we have had our brush with history.” Worth to mention that Babur was the founder of Mughal rule in India, from which the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty have descended.
