Op/Ed: Point Blank Range Shootings in Harmandir Sahib

Since the attack on Harmandir Sahib, there have been so many discussions around this sensitive and serious topic i.e. whether Indian army killed Sikh pilgrims and Sikh fighters after capturing them.

We at Babbar Akali Blog prefer writing with references so that readers can read it and trust it without any doubt in their minds. In this blog as well, we will give as many references possible so that Sikhs can equip themselves and reply to anybody who questions the truth. This blog is equally important for our Non-Sikh brothers who have been fed with venomous anti-Sikh propaganda by Indian media and government on Operation Bluestar.

What Indian Army and government has to say?

Not a single innocent pilgrim (read Sikh) was killed by Indian Army in any nonjudicial manner. There have been 100’s of statements by K Sundarji (then Army Commander) and KP Brar that not a single innocent person was killed by army. Statement which have been given by KP Brar and have been continuously changed by him on multiple TV programs and documentaries
1) ‘Not a single pilgrim was killed by Indian Army’, this statement has been reiterated by KP Brar and his associates like 100 times. Check this video where he has acknowledged that Army didn’t kill any innocent person/pilgrim

Now, check another video wherein he has acknowledged that pilgrims did die during the cross fire. He is hiding so much behind the white sheet which is colored by the blood of Sikhs
Even pilgrims who lost their near and dear ones have given statements and mentioned that they were residing in the hostels of Golden Temple and Indian army threw grenades and shot at them considering them as Sikh fighters. My question is that without knowing anything about who is in the room how can they throw grenades and shoot bullets

What Sikhs have to say?

Both the videos mentioned above are sufficient to prove the lies mentioned by KP Brar but there are many other proofs which are there in the open and are sufficient to prosecute him as ‘War Criminal’
1)¬†Balwant Singh Ramoowalia (Senior SAD member): He has clearly mentioned that senior official from Army (Major from 9 Kumaon Regiment) got innocent 35-40 young Sikhs from the Golden Temple Hostel Complex and lined them up. Please note, they were stripped naked and asked to sit in a queue. Later ‘Major’ gave orders to the ‘Army Jawaan’ to shoot them. All Sikh youth lined up were killed by the spree of bullets fired by the Army officials
2) Brigadier OS Goraya (then Colonel Administration): He being on the side of Indian Army has also confirmed that then Secretary SGPC Bhan Singh has confirmed that innocent Sikhs have been killed by the Army personnel by lining them in the rooms.
Listen to their statements

3) Post Mort-em Reports (PMR No: 704): This report clearly mentioned that body was brought into the hospital with hands tied behind the back.
4) Press reports by Brahma Chellaney: In his articles during 1984 he specifically mentioned that Sikh fighters (in Chellaney’s words ‘Sikh rebels’) were killed at point black range after Indian Army captured them.

Now with so many proofs against KP Brar, what shall we call him? I believe he is nothing less than liar and war criminal who should be hanged in the public. He was the commanding officer for the operation and if he can not control his troops then who else is responsible for their behavior.
Till date, nobody has cross examined the facts and Indian media along with Indian establishment has clearly washed away their hands from the atrocities done by the Indian Army after invading Harmandir Sahib.
Not a single person has been prosecuted by so-called ‘Men in Uniform’.
