Security agencies fear revival of military action in Punjab as 30th anniversary of Operation Bluestar approaches

Militancy came to an end three decades ago in Punjab. But Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI)-backed Sikh militant groups are attempting to revive terror and bloodshed in the state, sources in the Punjab Police said.

The Pakistani spy agency can use the ultras of four Khalistan terrorist groups - Ranjit Singh Meeta - headed Khalistan Zindabad Force (KZF), Jagtar Singh Tara-headed Khalistan Tiger Force (KTF), Wadhawa Singh-led Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) and Harminder Singh Minto-led Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) - to revive militancy and launch terror strikes in Punjab, the sources said.

The ISI and the radical Sikh groups are trying to lure unemployed youths to join terror groups, they added.

"The Sikh militant groups, particularly those operating from Pakistan, may launch nationwide terror strikes as the ISI wants these inactive outfits to prove their worth," a top source said.

Intelligence inputs, the sources said, were received that reportedly show that the ISI had held two important meetings with the Sikh terrorist groups recently.

Wadhawa Singh, Harminder Singh Minto, Gajinder Singh (Dal Khalsa), Ranjeet Singh Meeta, Jagtar Singh Tara, Lakhweer Singh Rode (International Sikh Youth Federation) and Paramjit Singh Panjwar (Khalistan Commando Force) were among the top ultras who attended the meetings.

Although no link between the Indian Mujahideen (IM) and Khalistan outfits has been found so far, security agencies fear the ISI can bring them together the IM's strength and ability to carry out blasts coupled with the knowledge of Khalistan terrorists about the demography, local language and culture.

In last three years, 20 Sikh militants were arrested from many parts of the country. Most of these arrests were made in Punjab.

On April 29, the Punjab Police had recovered 10 rocket launchers, one country-made bomb, one IED, one AK 47 rifle, six magazines, two sten guns, two empty magazines and one shotgun from a canal near Kaind Canal Bridge in Ludhiana.

Earlier, the revelation about the British government's role in Operation Blue Star had renewed the controversy surrounding the 30- year-old episode.

The turbulent militancy days may be over, but the Operation Blue Star remains a highly emotive issue in Punjab.

The Sikh radical groups do not let the memories of in Operation Blue Star fade away. The anniversary of Operation Blue Star is observed every year and relatives of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and others are honoured by these groups.

The ShiromaniI Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has even constructed a memorial in the memory of those killed in Operation Blue Star.

Moreover, the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and the pathetic attitude of subsequent governments, especially those of the Congress, have only hurt the feelings of the Sikh community.

The demand for a separate Khalistan may have become faint over the last three decades in Punjab, but the Khalistan terrorist groups continue to incite gullible unemployed Punjab youths by citing the 1984 anti-Sikh riots and Operation Blue Star.

Ratandeep is new face of militancy

Ratandeep Singh is one of the most dreaded and well-trained active Sikh militants currently residing in Pakistan. He has been extensively trained by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in weapons and explosives. He has been trained in assembly of IEDs.

Jagmohan Singh, who had assassinated religious ideologue Rulda Singh, had been personally trained by Ratandeep Singh in 2009.

Ratandeep is likely to take over the Babbar Khalsa International (BKI). He consults BKI chief Wadhawa Singh on major decisions and has established operational bases in countries such as Thailand and Cambodia. In October 2011, Ratandeep had organised a transfer of a large consignment of arms and FICN across the Indo- Pak border for an operation focused on targeting a Shiv Sena leader in Punjab.

Meeting: Sources say Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Avtar Singh Makkar was present at the reported meeting between military groups

Cracks among terror groups

By Manjeet Sehgal

Cracks have appeared among the Khalistan terrorist groups as they are under immense pressure from the ISI and their funding sources.

Sources privy to the information told Mail Today that Khalistan Commando Force chief Paramjit Singh Panjwad had an altercation with another top Khalistan ultra Ranjit Singh Meeta at a meeting on May 21 at Hasan Abdal in Pakistan.

Kuldip Singh alias Jujhar Singh Amrali, a Babbar Khalsa terrorist, was also present when the altercation took place.

Sources said other parties had to intervene to stop the two ultras from quarrelling. Radical Sikh group Dal Khalsa's UK chief Manmohan Singh was also present at the Gurudwara Panja Sahib, the sources said.

There were also reports that Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) chief Avtar Singh Makkar was present at the meeting.

When contacted, the SGPC chief denied the altercation took place in his presence and clarified that he only met Sikh pilgrims.

"Yes I had gone to Panja Sahib (Hasan Abdal). Patha (recitation) was going on when I reached there. I neither met anybody nor did I spoke to anyone. I was informed by the DGP that there is danger to my life in Pakistan, but nothing of that sort happened," Makkar told Mail Today.

New routes: The railway route connecting Jammu-Kashmir and Bihar is now being used to smuggle arms into the troubled Kashmir Valley, after security was tightened

Hizbul using Punjab to smuggle weapons

By Manjeet Sehgal

After the security was tightened on the Indo-Pakistan border, the Kashmiri militants found a new route to smuggle "cheap" arms from Bihar's illegal gun factories.

The railway route connecting Jammu-Kashmir and Bihar is now being used to smuggle arms into the troubled Kashmir Valley.

Punjab is being used as a transit point to smuggle weapons by the terrorist outfits, source said. The disclosure was made by a Hizbul Mujahideen arms courier who was caught with weapons in Pathankot on May 9.

Ravesh Ul-Islam, the alleged Hizbul arms courier, told his interrogators that the Kashmiri militants are now getting their arms supplies from Bihar via Punjab route.

According to the Punjab police, Kashmiri militants share good relations with criminals running illegal arms factories in Bihar.

Besides weapons, the Hizbul arms courier was found in possession of two mobile phones. One of the SIMs came from Pakistan.

Deputy Superintendent of Police of Government Railway Police (GRP), Hardeep Singh said a Punjab police team has left for Bihar to establish Hizbul's links with the illegal arms manufacturers in the eastern state.

Sources said Ravesh Ul-Islam had first visited Bartha in Bihar's Munger district on November 13 last year. He was asked by a Hizbul Mujahideen commander to buy a pistol and was also given Rs 45,000.

He had visited the same village on March 3 this year and had bought a pistol and ammunition worth Rs 35,000.

The Hizbul arms courier was caught when he was attempting to smuggle weapons for the third time.

"This was his third trip to Munger district. During his two earlier trips, Ravesh Ul-Islam had smuggled three pistols. The investigation is on," the DSP said.

Daily Mail has a bit of a reputation in the Uk if you understand Uk newspaper history. It has been called the Daily Hate. In the 1930's it was ran by Lord Rothermere, who was a supporter of Hitler and Mussoolini and ran headline in 1934 'Hooray for the Blackshirts' - The Blackshirts were a fascist party in the UK with ties to the Nazi party. I know a long time ago but it still has a reputation for its ummm 'views'

Thing is it shouldnt make a difference as the readership already hates us for many things including supporting equality for women, that many of us demand equal rights and such. Depressing read otherwise :s

Articles like the below show their clear bias!

Few mins internet searching reveals daily mail is in a joint venture with Mail today which is published by India today group hence the anti sikh and bias articles. The journalist manjeet sehgal also doesn't really hide his bias and lack of actual factual journalism(always writes allegedly etc). Journalists like him and articles that lack facts and spread false information really need to be highlighted to the press complaints commission!

The least they can do is allow people to comment. Seems that's the problem with Indians. They are always scared of the truth. During operation bluestar, the GOI on purpose did media blackout throughout Punjab. Yet not one Indian stood up and asked why is there a media black out? what is the government doing in Punjab that they are trying to hide from me?

Instead their attitude is that Sikhs should be thankful to them for "liberating the Golden Temple".

And even now they just cant digest the fact that when ever they lie on their articles like this jhoota Manjeet Sehgal, Sikhs all over the world begin to expose their lies by writing the truth in the comments section. So they just disband the comments function on their article.

Once Sikhs have leadership it would be a good idea to have our own media outlet publishing "truth" instead of allowing famous news outlets spread false garbage.

No surprises. 30 years on the common view is Bhindrawale was a terrorist.

Many Sikhs like me also have this view. We're automatically labelled as 'RSS' or not proper Sikhs because we believe this, but absolutely no offence intended to anyone but who is greater......Guru Nanak Dev Ji maharaj and our other 10 Gurus (including GGSJ) or bhindrawale? Because from an outside view they may look like they stood for the same thing which is what many young Sikhs are led into believing, but when we delve into the lives of the gurus and their teachings and what bhindrawale stood for they couldn't be more different. From my own experience is disgusting to see that when asked, many of our younger sikh generation can't even name the ten gurus in order or read our beautiful baani, but when questioned about 1984 they suddenly become all knowing Sikhs. I fear in a few generations to come, we will only know one guru........Guru Bhindrawale and our actual wonderful gurus will be all but forgotten and 'murti pooja' to guru bhindrawale will be all that sikhi will become.
