Operation Blue Star was a military operation that was ordered by Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister, to remove Sikh militants who were amassing weapons in the Harmandir Sahib Complex (Golden Temple) in Amritsar, to establish control over it. The operation was launched in response to a deterioration of law and order in Punjab. The roots of Operation Blue Star can be traced from the Khalistan Movement. The Khalistan movement originally started in the early 1940s and ’50s, but the movement was most popular in the 1970s and 1980s. Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, who was the leader of the Damdami Taksal, was another important factor that led towards Operation Blue Star. But the facts about the operation are still not clear. SGPC former president Kirpal Singh Badungar claims that neither the government nor the army has ever released the figures of those killed in the operation and the operation was carried out at 37 gurdwaras simultaneously along with the Golden temple. For the past ten years, the Dal Khalsa has been regularly observing this day by undertaking a march on June 5 and giving the call for Amritsar bandh on June 6 but this time due to coronavirus pandemic the Dal Khalsa has decided to put its call for shutdown on hold and instead of the march with huge gathering they have decided to go for a ‘Genocide Remembrance Parade.
