New Delhi: India has witnessed many major incidents of bloodsheds ever since the independence where many lives were ruined and many houses were destroyed.

One such incident is Operation Blue Star, which is known as one of the worst events in the Sikh history.

This year (3-8 June) marks the 30th anniversary of what has often been described as a watershed moment in India's political history for the chain of events it unleashed - forever altering India's political course and leaving a permanent scar in the psyche of the Sikh community.

Operation Bluestar was ordered by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi at the height of the Sikh militant struggle for a separate state (Khalistan) to flush out armed militants led by Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale from the Golden Temple.

This Operation was commanded by Lt. Gen. Kuldip Singh Brar, operating under Gen. Sundarji.
