AMRITSAR : In a bid to keep intact damage done during Operation Bluestar in June 1984, work to encase the bullet marks in steel-framed glass began on Sunday at the Golden Temple. SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal and head granthi of Harmandar Sahib Giani Jagtar Singh were present on the occasion.

After around 35 years, the apex gurdwara body decided to preserve the relics of the army operation with the help of technical experts and architects. SGPC chief secretary Roop Singh, said, “The preservation is a technical task and we have enlisted the services of experts. It will take three months to complete.”

These bullet marks can be seen on one of the entrances of the gurdwara called as ‘karah parshad wali bahi’ (the entrance to the place where karah parshad is prepared) in local parlance. After Teja Singh Samundari Hall, headquarters of the SGPC, was whitewashed and renovated few years ago, while keeping bullet marks intact, this structure has remained the only one which was not re-touched or altered. It is the only surviving structure which endured maximum damage.

A sample of the glass encasing was shown during the inauguration of the work. “These bullet marks remind us of the inhuman act of the then Congress government at the Centre. This is why we are encasing these marks to preserve them and shield them against rain etc,” said Longowal. He added that a display board will be mounted on the structure to familiarize the sangat and next generation about the history of the attack.
