Pakistan’s ISI trying to revive militancy in punjab, centre worried
|Golden Temple Amritsar|
The centre is worried by the move of setting up memorial for those killed in the ‘Operation Blue Star’ in Golden Temple.
Bricks were laid for the memorial by five Sikh head preists along with Jatehedar Akal Takht Gyani Gubachan Singh and SGPC President Avtar Singh Makkar on the 28th anniversary of Operation Blue Star on June 6.
Centre said it is watching the developments keenly. “It is a very disturbing development as the occasion was marked with separist and anti-India slogans,” a senior official said.
The Operation Blue Star was launched by the army on june6 in 1984 to flush out holed-up Sikh militants led by their leader Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale, who was killed along with his 200 associates.
For the last five years, Pakistani diplomats and ISI officers have been meeting separatist Sikh leaders regularly in Europe and America and encouraging and helping them to revive militancy in punjab, the sources said.
The Home ministry is also watching the move of radical Sikh groups Damdami Taksal and Dal Khalsa which are holding meetings across Punjab and honouring family members of 220 ‘martyrs’ killed on June 6, 1984.
“So far we are keen;y watching. If things go out of hands, we will have to act,” the officer said.
