In 1984 the Indian Government attacked the holiest shrine of the Sikhs in Amritsar, commonly known as the Golden Temple (Harmander Sahib) on the pre-text of flushing out terrorists. 30 years later this attack on the faith & nationhood of the Sikhs still brings up painful memories of murder, terrorism and genocide. In light of newly disclosed documents by the British Government, many questions remain unanswered for the Sikh community about the events prior to and after Operation Blue Star (the Indian Army s attack on the Sikh s holiest shrine in Amritsar). The aim of the book is to explore the events leading up to 1984 and to analyse the pursuit of truth, justice and liberty, for Sikhs in India and the diaspora. The book follows a narrative which is historical and topical, bringing current issues of Sikhs and Punjabi's into the discussion. There is also a focus on Sikhs in the diaspora and current Sikh agitations for justice.
