Description

The present study is a narration and analysis of events which led to Operation Blue Star in June, 1984 and its consequences. It tries to give an insight into the working of the minds of the major personalities involved in that momentous event. The book examines the inter-relatedness of the congress (I) maneuvers and the murky Akali politics and policies which led to the emergence of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, a period of confrontation and bloody turmoil in Punjab.

The book looks into the mindless violence unleashed by the Sikh terrorists and equally mindless state terrorism; both contributing to the increasing alienation of the Sikhs from the national mainstream during that period.

It also looks at the factors that led to a qualitative difference in militancy in the pot-Operation Blue Star phase. It analyses why the people of Punjab were not separatists as they were made out to be by the Congress (I) leadership and how the people of Punjab contributed in putting an end to terror.

The author does not make any value-judgments but sees revival of militancy still a possibility and gives the reasons and conditions which could lead to the revival of militancy in the near future.
