Ludhiana/Punjab (October 02, 2012): According to media reports Kuldip Brar, former Lt Gen. of Indian Army who had led armed attack on Sri Darbar Sahib, Amritsar in June 1984, has survived the attack. He was reportedly attacked by four persons in London. He sustained injuries on his neck and face, believed to have been caused with a knife.

According to recent media reports Kuldip Brar has told media that the London attack was an attempt on his life because of his role in “Operation Blue Star”, i.e. armed attack by Indian army on Sikh shrines in Punjab and adjoining areas, such as Haryana.

“ ‘This was a pure assassination attempt on me. Even on Internet there are so many threats being sent to me to say that there have been many attempts on your life but they haven’t succeeded, but the next one will succeed. They’ve been after me.’ Lt. Gen. Brar told a television channel on Monday night”, reports The Hindu.

Attack on Darbar Sahib in June 1984 has attained the status of “cultural trauma” for Sikhs, and accused persons who were responsible for killing thousands of Sikh pilgrims continue to face wrath of Sikhs.

It is notable that former Major General of Indian army, J.S. Jamwal in a TV interview had revealed that Operation Blue Star was perhaps the only army activity in the history of Indian Army that was neither reviewed nor discussed after the attack was over.
