Operation Blue Star was an Indian military operation, ordered by the then Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi, which took place 3–8 June 1984, to eliminate Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale from the Golden Temple in Amritsar.
Bhindranwale was accused of amassing weapons in the Sikh temple and starting a major armed uprising. These reasons are contested by most Sikh scholars who claim that Akal Takhat is a temporal seat and keeping weapons in Gurdwaras is well within the precincts of Sikhism.
Dr Harjinder Singh Dilgeer says that Indira Gandhi attacked Darbar Sahib to present herself as a great hero in order to win forthcoming elections.
