1984 Attack, Sri Akal
Takhat Sahib (Events) adf
Army Attack on the Golden Temple (June 1984)
Under the calculated move of the Prime Minister
of India, Indira Gandhi, Indian troops storm Sri Harimandir Sahib with
tanks. Thousands of Sikhs were massacred. Sri Akal Takht suffered the worst.
Wherever they were, Sikhs rose up in a united protest. Many returned their
honours and decorations; others kicked govt. jobs, Sikh soldiers left their
barracks and rushed towards the Darbar Sahib. Thousands of others courted
arrest. The Sikhs, however, soon had their vengeance.
