    "During Operation Blue Star Indian army photographers took photographs of the military operation and it’s immediate aftermath. Thousands of photographs were taken but have never been released to the public. All independent and foreign journalists were also expelled from Punjab. One high ranking Indian Army officer made the fateful decision to get a roll of film with Blue Star photographs that he had taken developed by a local camera shop. Realizing what they were looking at, the shop owners made a secret copy of those prints. Second and third generation copies of those copies were then smuggled out of India and form the only existing photographs of the military operation and conditions in the Darbar Sahib complex during and immediately after the initial combat phase of Operation Blue Star.


    'As the state of digital imaging technology has advanced over the years and working with a set of early generation images some of the clearest high resolution images from that one roll of film can now be seen online. These photographs have been combined with rare images of the Akal Takht before it’s destruction, including seldom seen images of the original Akal Takht interior and rare artwork now lost. To provide a better contextual frame of reference when viewing the army photographs, contemporary photographs of the same buildings from relatively similar vantage points are also included."

    YouTube - Operation Bluestar - Sikh Holocaust

    This and associated links provide a better picture of an ongoing problem....

    All governments react in similar fashion should a Messiah or Saviour of God and the people arise in their ranks without submission to what is an ongoing corruption of the
    Little Edens made hell by evil, ignorant wiful tyrants.

    To whom should one lodge a complaint when media and the UN themselves are self muted and silenced by leaders serving interests and abetting fellow co-conspirators.

    That is ridiculous. I went through the pictures. As if the loss of life and physical damage to the buildings wasn't enough, many ancient things were stolen as well.

    STOLEN...LOOTED more like it..and by our OWN TROOPS...not by outsiders as has happened many times before...THATS why this hurts more...
    and to add salt to injury..the GOI refuses to divulge or return the stolen Artifacts/manuscripts....even after 25 years...

    Gyani ji,

    Guru Fateh.

    You are right and the saddest part is that the honchos of the Sikhi are too busy in their own ego trips rather than following the footsteps of our Gurus. They are gidhars but pretend to have the manes of the lions. It is a shame indeed.
