    Agence-France Presse in AmritsarFriday 6 June 2014 08.19 EDT


    Clashes have broken out between sword-wielding Sikhs at the Golden Temple in northern India on the 30th anniversary of a notorious army raid in which hundreds of people were killed.


    At least 10 people were wounded in the violence at the temple, the holiest shrine in the Sikh religion, in the city of Amritsar.


    Hundreds of Sikhs had gathered at the shrine on Friday to pay their respects to those killed in the raid on the temple by Indian troops on 6 June 1984. The raid was aimed at flushing out armed separatists demanding an independent Sikh homeland.

    "Today we were supposed to have a solemn remembrance for the martyrs of 1984 so what has happened is very sad," said a spokesman for a radical Sikh group called the Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) whose supporters were involved in the clashes.


    "The temple has once again been dishonoured today," the spokesman Prem Singh Chandumajra told reporters.


    Television footage showed two groups of Sikhs wearing blue, yellow and orange turbans chasing each other with swords on the marbled staircase of the shrine in Punjab state.


    The clashes allegedly broke out after members of Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) insisted they be allowed to address the crowds first.

    "Members of a radical outfit confronted the temple's taskforce, triggering the fight. Some 10 people have been injured, two of them are being treated in hospital," a police officer in charge of temple safety told Agence-France Presse.


    He said the situation was now under control, with extra security deployed inside the temple.


    Amarinder Singh, a prominent political leader from Punjab, condemned the violence.


    "It is very shameful. There is no provision for law and order there," Singh, who belongs to the Congress party, told reporters. "It is unfortunate that such a thing is happening at our religious site."


    At least 400 people were killed in the army's infamous Operation Blue Star, which enraged Sikhs who accused the troops of desecrating the shrine.


    India's then prime minister, Indira Gandhi, was shot dead by her Sikh bodyguards in October 1984 in revenge for the operation. Her assassination triggered mass anti-Sikh riots in which about 3,000 people were killed, many of them on the streets of Delhi.


    On Thursday, supporters of several radical groups staged a Genocide Remembrance parade around the streets of Amritsar, shouting slogans to hail the "martyrs" of 1984.


    Despite the outrage over the raid, support for an independent "Khalistan", or the land of the pure, has waned in the last three decades. Analysts say Punjab's geopolitical significance – the landlocked region shares borders with Pakistan and restive Kashmir – means sovereignty is almost impossible.


    However support for the independence movement remains strong among sections of the Sikh diaspora in Britain, Canada and the United States.


    Kuldip Singh Brar, the commander of Operation Blue Star, was seriously injured in 2012 when he was stabbed on a London street. A Sikh gang was found guilty of the attack, which was carried out to avenge the 1984 raid.

    See what happens when people don't have guns? Could have had hundreds of dead Sihks instead of a bunch of dudes slap fighting with swords. Everybody wearing white, swords being wielded and no one got color? The injured were probably trampled.

    Supposedly 10 or so were injured. There's some color on one of the dudes coming down the steps at the end.. It was some political non-sense, and I don't think anyone intended to kill. Enough have died at that site already.

    This confirms what I've long suspected; those thin curved swords are BULLSHIT. :grad:

    Yeah, if they had some ninja swords they could poke a Sihk to make him leak. Heck, I've seen more damage done w/ kendo sticks.

    I just asked an Indian guy I work with ( after I showed him the video ).... He was all like " yea, that shit happens because those idiots still carry swords " It's normal for them to walk around with swords day and night ....

    Sikhs are generally good people...the warrior/body guard class in India historically...they are also taller than most indians

    Sad that no one fucking person died, they are losing their edge
