INDIA-RELIGION-SIKH

Activists from various radical Sikh organisations hold placards in support of Sikh leader Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and Khalistan, the name given for the envisioned independent Sikh state, after prayers at Sri Akal Takht at the Golden Temple in Amritsar on June 6, 2013, on the occasion of 'Ghallughara Diwas' the 29th Anniversary of Operation Bluestar. The gathering marked the 29th anniversary of Operation Bluestar, the assault on the Golden Temple complex by the Indian army in 1984 to arrest Sikh leader Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and his militant followers who had initiated a movement for a separate Sikh state, a move linked to the eventual assasination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
