Operation Blue Star was a code name for army action in Golden Temple in June 1984 by Government of India when Sikh militants made their headquarters inside Golden Temple. In this operation, the government could flush out the militants successively.

But it deeply hurt the sentiments of the Sikhs because a large proportion of their community in India saw this operation as an attack on their faith.
