OPERATION WOOD ROSE
Terrorists and terrorism is wrong and their is no place for terrorism in the world this day and age.but anti terror laws should be about stopping terrorists not ethnic cleansing minorities like India is doing .Sikhs are being ethnic cleans under the name of anti terror laws of Hindu India.These law are specially designed to attack the Sikh identity and force Hinduism into the Sikh Nation.Its is very clear see the policy of the RSS Hindutva behind these operations.
During military attack on the Golden Temple Complex, code named, "Operation Blue Star" at least five thousand innocent Sikhs who had gathered there for observation of the martyrdom day of Guru Arjun, were massacred by the Indian Army. Feeling not content with this ghastly bloodshed the Indian government, side by side with Operation Blue Star, launched on the Sikhs another attack known as Operation Woodrose. The main purpose of this Operation was to mop up all 20000 Amritdhari Sikhs, especially the young boys, from all villages of Punjab. During this mopping up operation the Army indiscriminately picked up all Sikh boys and other Sikhs who had supported flowing beards and adorned Gatra, a small dagger, one of the five symbols prescribed by Guru Gobind Singh; It is preposterous that the Army branded in their official publication "Bat Cheet" all Amritdhari (Baptised)Sikhs as extremists and the Indian government led by Indira Gan-dhi had endorsed this grave disinformation spread by the blinded Army. Instead of asking the Army to keep their hands off the innocent Amritdhari Sikhs, the Indian government framed draconian laws to facilitate the Army to carry out indiscriminate arrests of the Sikhs, young and old, alike. The state of Punjab and Chandigarh were declared as disturbed areas and to accord it legal sanctity the Punjab Chandigarh Disturbed Areas Act was passed by the government. Not only that, to enable the Army to round up any Sikh they wished to without impunity the government passed another Act called the Armed Forces (Punjab and Chandigarh) Act. To provide sharp teeth to the courts, the Terrorists Affected Areas (Special Courts) Act was also passed to deal sternly with the arrested Sikhs. And to arm the police and the paramilitary forces with unbridled powers the Criminal Procedure Code was amended. The civil administration was virtually subordinated to the military authorities. Thus Punjab was virtually converted into a Military Occupied Area as is done in the case of captured area of an enemy country.
The Army revengefully let loose a rein of terror in every nook and corner of all villages of Punjab. Like hunting hounds they rounded up thousands of Sikhs especially the youths, detained them in military camps, tortured them brutally, and in many cases shot them dead. Many were crippled and maimed permanently. The reckless oppression forced hundreds of those Sikh youths, at whom the Army could not lay hands, to flee their villages.The mothers, sisters and wives of those Sikhs who went under ground for fear of arbitrary arrests, were arrested, detained in the military camps. Tortured and in many cases molested in order to force their fleeing relatives to surrender. There was none to hear their wails and woes: their was none to give them healing touch. Only wild wolves were let loose to howl and growl at them. The fanatic Hindus slyly smiled and gleefully rejoiced at the pitiable plight of the Sikhs in Punjab.
OPERATION SHUDHEE KARAN (OPERATION-RAPE SIKH WOMEN)
Sikh women were also the target of the bloody thirsty Hindu Indian Security forces. Sikh women were ruthlessly tortured, not only physically but also mentally. They were used as tools to force the surrender of Sikh fighters who were their relatives and also as a means of humiliating families. When Sikh women were arrested with their husbands, the husbands were often forced to watch the rape of their wives. Rape was used as an interrogation tool.
Humiliation: A common form of torture used on Sikhs
The Indian Forces also began a program of “shudhee karan”, which was a code name for the rape of Sikh women. They joked that the offspring of their rapes would change the genetic makeup of the Sikh community and they would kill the Resistance in this way. Many rape victims took their own lives, unable to live with the ongoing humiliation at the hands of the Indian police.
Its is very clear see the policy of the RSS Hindutva behind these operations.
