Amritsar, Punjab (February 7, 2014): With the role of British government in planning and executing infamous “Operation Blue Star” making headlines, All India Sikh Students Federation (AISSF) presented a memorandum to Akal Takhat Jathedar, about the support provided by LK Advani to Indira Gandhi to attack Sri Harmandir Sahib in June 1984 and association of BJP with Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal).
The AISSF memorandum states that “It is well known that besides British governments support, Indian army’s action to attack Sri Harmandir Sahib was also supported by LK Advani and his party BJP. In his book “My Country, My Life”, LK Advani proudly takes credit for having a hand in Indian Government’s military action on Sri Harmandir Sahib in June 1984.
AISSF President Karnail Singh Peermohammad stated that “We have to question all those who supported army action in June 1984, including Congress (I), Indian Government, British Government and BJP, who also openly supported Indira Gandhi”. All are guilty of “Criminal Conspiracy” against the Sikh community that lead to two decades of genocidal violence resulting in the loss of thousands of innocent Sikh lives. We cannot pick and choose the adversaries based on our relationship with them, as SAD (Badal) leadership is doing in the case of BJP” added Peermohammad.
The AISSF memorandum urged Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh to declare that BJP is equally responsible for the army invasion of Sri Harmandir Sahib; direct Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) to sever all ties with the BJP, a party that openly supported army invasion of Sri Harmandir Sahib and ISSUE a directive to SAD (Badal), SGPC and DSGMC to stop using the horrendous incidents of June 1984 to further their political interests.
AISSF memorandum pointing to BJP’s involvement in 1984 states that “supporting Indian Army’s invasion of Sri Harmandir Sahib in June 1984 on a day when Sri Harmandir Sahib is most visited by Sikh pilgrims who gather to commemorate martyrdom of 5th Guru Arjun Dev Ji resulted in the destruction of Sri Akal Takhat Sahib and doesn’t end with the death of over 10,000 innocent Sikh men, women, children, and the greatest Sikh leader in the modern history (Shaheed Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale).
According to AISSF [t]he BJP leadership is also guilty of all the innocent blood that spilt since June 1984. This includes more than 30,000 Sikhs systematically killed during November Sikh Genocide and the 1984 to 2000 Punjab Liberation Struggle which resulted in the Indian police killing over 100,000 Sikhs across India.
AISSF President stated that the nefarious policy of the SAD (Badal) supporting BJP, a party that had openly acknowledged support to Indira Gandhi to attack Sri Harmandir Sahib, is unacceptable and is an unholy alliance.
