What is Operation Blue Star?
In June 1984, the Indian Army launched 'Operation Bluestar' to drive out terrorists from the Golden Temple complex. Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and pro-Khalistan fundamentalists strongly opposed the army moving towards Akal Takht Harmandir Sahib and during this there was fierce firing from both sides. The Akal Takht was badly damaged in the midst of heavy bloodshed, and for the first time in many centuries, the Guru Granth Sahib could not be recited at Harmandir Sahib.
