***** BREAKING****** Did Britain help India plan the raid on the Golden Temple? January 13th, 2014 Tom Watson MP The ‘Stop Deportations’ web site carries “Top Secret and Personal” documents purporting to come from the National Archives and recently made public under the 30 year rule for Cabinet papers. The claim that the British Government colluded with the government of India over Operation Blue Star, the raid on the Golden Temple in Amritsar, will cause huge upset and offence to many British Sikhs. I’ve only seen the documents this morning and am told there are others that have been withheld. This is not good enough. It is not unreasonable to ask for an explanation about the extent of British military collusion with the government of Indira Gandhi. In the year when Sikhs commemorate their role in the centenary of World War I and mourn for loved ones lost in the events of 1984, this latest revelation will be deeply felt. I am writing to the Foreign Secretary about this matter and will raise it in the House of Commons. I expect a full explanation. 30 Yr Documents – 1984 Attack on Golden Temple - Tom Watson, Member of British Parliament http://www.tom-watson.co.uk/2014/01/did-britain-help-india-plan-the-raid-on-the-golden-temple http://www.tom-watson.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/30-Yr-Documents-1984-Attack-on-Golden-Temple.pdf http://stopdeportations.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/revealed-sas-advised-1984-amritsar-raid/ official source of the document: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/SearchUI/details?Uri=C14134612
