"Damaged the outer facade"

What absolute crap. Everyone knows that the Akal Takht was reduced to rubble. This is not a biased opinion. There are pictures to prove it. This is a complete insult to what occurred that day and is a clear factual error. PLease correct it.


This article has almost no inline references, Can someone who is knowledgeable about this matter please correct this. I've marked this article as needing attention under India and Sikhism, Thanks. The Terminator p t c 23:01, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Neutrality dispute on 1984 section[edit]

The article claims that the goal of Indira Gandhi was to "to finish the sikhs". This seems like a ridiculous claim. Whatever you think of the operation - no country would allow anyone to fortify a building, stockpiling weapons and get away with it. Most likely, her motivation was to ensure the unity of India. It seems very unlikely that "to finish the sikhs" was the purpose, particularly, since Gandhi insisted to keep her sikh bodyguards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:02, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Neutrality dispute on History section[edit]

The sentence "On June 4, 1984, the Akal Takht building was damaged during invasion of Darbar Sahib Complex in Operation Bluestar launched by the Indian Army on orders of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to destroy and suppress the culture of an ethnic group which raised their voice against the atrocities of the cruel regime and demanded the basic rights to live with dignity." does not conform with the Neutral Point of View requirements (see Wikipedia:Neutral point of view). I would like to see a more neutral sentence (or even one with a credible citations) instead of this sentence. Confuseddesi (talk) 17:32, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
