India Sikh groups clash at Golden Temple
« on: June 06, 2014, 02:47:15 AM »
Several people have been injured after Sikh groups brandishing swords clashed at India's Golden Temple as special prayers were held to mark the deadly military offensive there in 1984.

Reports said the fight at Sikhism's holiest shrine was over who would speak first at the ceremony and that a scuffle broke out over a microphone.

Footage showed men running down temple steps lashing out with their swords.

Reports said at least three people had been taken to hospital with injuries.

About 1,000 people are estimated to have died during the military raid to flush out Sikh separatists from the Golden Temple at Amritsar, codenamed Operation Blue Star was.

Sikh's are not terribly well known in the USA. They should be. Quite amazing people, and totally worthy of respect.
Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.
