Sikhs Remember The 1984 Massacres

A large truck with the image of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale (a controversial figure in Indian history whom the Sikhs consider to be a great martyr and is regarded by others as a militant figure).There are other graphic images to commemorate the 1984 storming of the Golden Temple by the Indian army and to pay homage to the thousands of Sikhs who were killed in an apparent revenge attack instigated by members of the ruling Congress party and sparked by the assassination of the Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. During 'Operation Blue Star', the Indian Army stormed inside the Golden Temple to flush out militants hiding there and to arrest Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and his militant followers who had initiated a movement for a separate Sikh state named 'Khalistan'. A large number of the radical Sikh supporters are in the Sikh community in Canada which is known for its fundraising activities to benefit Sikh militant groups in India and to continue the struggle for a separate Sikh state. Many such Khalistan supporters and other Canadian Sikhs attended this Nagar Kirtan to celebrate Vaisakhi. Nagar Kirtan is a Sikh custom involving the processional singing of holy hymns throughout the community. (Photo by Creative Touch Imaging Ltd./NurPhoto via Getty Images)
