The pro-India surya magazine article Sept 1984 edition that exposed India's role in pre-1984 punjab violence

Recommended Posts

Saw this digitized version of the article on social media just now, its the sept 1984 edition of the surya indian magazine.

Very important piece in Sikh history that exposed what Sikhs been saying all these years that it was the indira's congress government provoking violence using secret state agent provocateurs in order to create a pretext to attack darbar sahib and genocide the Sikhs in punjab. Apparently the journalist spoke to high level Indian military intelligence sources from the R&AW at the time only a few months after operation blue star.

I tried enhancing it. Idk if it helps:


Bit more clearer but still not able to read the 2nd page properly.

From what I gather it makes it pretty clear how brazen how proud the military intelligence within the indian establishment was of stoking violence, allowing aiding and abetting bombings, killings and weapons flowing freely to darbar sahib. We know from letters from indira gandhi to Margret thatcher that the indian's had secret team of indian commando units stationed within the sangat of darbar sahib back before in feb 1984.

The article appears to also allege the attack on darbar sahib was an attempt to cover up indira gandhi loyalist "the third agency" involvement in seditious and terrorist crimes. I am guessing here, but to me it appears plan of operation blue star looked like to kill almost everyone in darbar sahib because maybe they had lost control of some former agents of the pro-india "third agency" who had perhaps switched sides? And the ransacking of Sikh reference library was an attempt to find and hide the evidence of Indira's indian government involvement in crimes between hindus and sikhs in punjab. When they couldn't do that it was set on fire and destroyed but not before they had taken away everything including all the important historical religious artifacts and documents still held in CBI vaults to this very day.

"To legitimise the attack, according to Subramaniam Swami—-a member of the Indian Parliament—-the central government had created a disinformation campaign. In his words, the state sought to “make out that the Golden Temple was the haven of criminals, a store of armory and a citadel of the nation’s dismemberment conspiracy.” The Surya magazine published a special report detailing how the Third Agency, a special intelligence outfit created by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s Secretariat, R. Shankaran Nair, was instrumental in smuggling most of the arms inside the Darbar Sahib. “One week before the Army action, Punjab police had intercepted two truck loads of weapons and ammunition in the Batala sub-division of Gurdaspur district. But the officer of the Third Agency, in-charge of Amritsar, persuaded the director-general of police (DGP) to release them and send them along safely to the Golden Temple.” There are claims that Sikh leaders such as Dr. Jagjit Singh Chohan, Harchand Singh Longowal, Didar Bains, Ganga Singh Dhillon, much of the Akali Dal leadership, and others were complicit in the attack on the Golden Temple "

The R&AW agents of "the third agency" are also blamed for air india bombing in 1985. The book soft target alleges that one of their agents was talwinder singh parmer who was part of the same group of Babbar khalsa militants pictured at darbar sahib pre 1984. But some how miraculously escaped the carnage as he was in german jail and conveniently released in july 1984, managed to get to canada and form BKI where he along with surjan singh gill (a now exposed CSIS Canadian intelligence agent). Then plotted away for the air india attack. The indian authorities extradited parmer and allegedly tortured and killed him in 1992. Whether he was an unwitting pawn helped along by R&AW in the agenda or a trained agent asset for india remains open to debate.

In 2003, Ranjit Nanda, a former inspector for the Central Bureau of Investigation, (CBI) turned whistleblower and revealed he was part of a five member team which scrutinized the documents at the CBI's makeshift office at Amritsar's Youth Club. Ranjit Nanda revealed that officials from his department were "desperately looking for a purported letter written by Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister, to Jarnail Singh Bhinderanwale", and reported seeing letters from the other leaders addressed to Jarnail Singh Bhinderanwale. Manjit Calcutta, a former secretary of the SGPC, corroborated Nanda's version of events but further alleged that the army set the library "on fire in desperation when it failed to find the letter".

We know that some young militant people who took part in such indian state sanctioned killings were turban wearing "Sikhs" who blamed their activities on orders of sant bhindranwale. Virsa Singh Valtoha's "evidence" was used as propaganda and reason enough to declare sant bhindranwale was ordering the killings of innocents and thus became a projected hate figure, a mass killer of everyone in punjab just as the congress govt wanted. Yet that same person when caught by the army in 1984 operation blue star was allowed to live by the indian authorities no action appears to have been taken. Again strangely the same Virsa Singh Valtoha allegedly took part in kharku militant occupation of darbar sahib, where during army attack in 1987 operation black thunder he publicly surrendered to armed forces commanded by avjit doval and  kps gill and again was not harmed. The same person then became a political figure for the akali dal and now on trial in indian courts for a 1983 murder case.

We know there was some alleged disagreements between militant forces at darbar sahib which forced Sant bhindranwale and his loyalists like general shabeg Singh to seek sanctuary at sri akal takht sahib. Could those same militant forces have been R&AW indian commando agents of "the third agency"?  The target of indira's govt was always the Akal takht sahib it seems. The indian establishment need sant bhindranwale to relocate there as to give the justification and pretext for its destruction by tanks. It was there target always because the authority of the Sikhs came from there and thats what they wanted crushed.

General SK Sinha, who was asked by then PM Indira Gandhi to plan the attack at the Golden Temple, had reservations over the proposal. He sought premature retirement in 1983 on being superseded by Lt Gen AS Vaidya for the post of Army chief. General Arunkumar Shridhar Vaidya, who was the brain behind Operation Bluestar involving military attack against the Sikh militants of darbar sahib. The anti-sikh tyrant Vaidya was eventually found and shot dead in 1986 by Sikh revenge death hit squad members bhai sukha and bhai jinda.

We know general sinha gave information in his book that in 1983 he turned down the order to attack darbar sahib. We know the israeli trained nsg indian commando's were practicing on models of darbar sahib in UP around 1982-1983. General Sinha declined to take part in all coordinated plan to genocide Sikhs and thus was sidelined and refused promotion by the establishment. Generals Dyal, sunderji, vaidya and Brar wanted to prove themselves loyal dogs to the indira's government so agreed to attack darbar sahib instead.

As the missing pieces of the jigsaw come together we see a clearer picture how deep a conspiracy the collusion this was to politically trap and then genocide the Sikhs on false pretexts they had created themselves.

The uncomfortable truths may also uncover those dharmi militants that were hailed as hero's by the sangat for so many decades may have been part of the state military machinery of the indian establishment and either working as unwitting pawns or fully trained and hired R&AW agents to further accomplish the anti-sikh agenda at the time.

Some more information i've found on super secret indian intelligence outfit "the third agency" of R&AW and their other role in creating, funding, arming and training LTTE tamil tigers insurgency in sri lanka



Premier Indira Gandhi, also the leader of the powerful Congress(I) Party, took a policy decision to support Sri Lankan northern insurgency from August 1983.The need to have leverage over Colombo was adequately demonstrated by the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW),the agency also responsible for advancing India’s secret foreign policy goals. Within her inner circle, the decision was justified. Geopolitics and domestic compulsions validated the rationale. The third agency of RAW, a supra intelligence outfit, was entrusted with the task.

Within a year ,the number of Sri Lanka Tamil training camps in Tamil Nadu mushroomed to 32.By mid 1987,over 20,000 Sri Lankan Tamil insurgents had been provided sanctuary, finance, training and weapons either by the central government, state government of Tamil Nadu or by the insurgent groups themselves. While most of the initial training was confined to Indian military and para military camps in Uttara Pradesh, specialized training was imparted by the Indian instructors attached to RAW to Sri Lankan insurgents in New Delhi, Bombay and Vishakhapuram. The most secretive training was conducted in Chakrata, north of Dehra Dun, India’s premier military academy for training service personnel, where RAW had also imparted training to Bangladesh, Pakistan and Tibetan dissidents.
