    Yes amarsanghera ji, why not? But let us not forget this important chapter in Sikh history lest it repeats itself again.

    The circumstances surrounding Operation Bluestar are a matter of controversy. And not everyone commemorates 1984 in the same way or wants to. But the fact is that Bhindranwale and his followers were not the only ones who suffered. People who were visiting the Golden Temple in the hundreds, people living outside, they were also victims. There was a news blackout. The Akaal Takht was demoslished and along with it valuable documents were either destroyed or disappeared. Widows and children of men murdered in the streets in the aftermath have not seen justice and live in the shadows of society in poverty. The story repeats itself many times in Sikh history. And the story of 1984 is not yet past, given the continued pursuit of justice in the courts. I know that there are people who believe that wounds heal more quickly if we put the past behind us and give up remembrance. But I am one of those people who does not agree and believe instead that when hope is taken away and justice delayed then problems go underground, where they fester and fulminate, until they explode again. We should not forget. If we do it becomes to easy to say that it never happened.
