Operation Bluestar

Between 1 June 1984 and 8th June 1984, in Amritsar’s Golden Temple Indian military carried out an operation to eliminate Khalistani separatist terrorists who were hiding inside the temple complex. It was ordered by Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India as a solution to law and order situation in Punjab. Few months later, on 31st October, 1984, Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards to avenge for the Operation Blue Star. This led to large-scale anti-Sikh riots in India where Congress leaders were accused of leading mobs against Sikhs.
