As harsh and troubled it was, commencing Remembering Operation BlueStar, because unlike the Communist Dictatorship called China, INDIA thrives because we are free to tell our History, even if it is terrible.
Will be putting up Thread what happened and how.
Before we Go into History, here's a Long one by @SandeepUnnithan From 2014 and 1999.
What happened before Operation BlueStar. Those who know, will still remain mum till their last, but there's much we know and can talk about.
'With Prayers on Our Lips, and Humility in Our Hearts'.
A time to Forget, a time to Remember, a time to Ponder, a time to reflect. Never Ever Must We Forget, #OpBlueStar

Chittagong Armoury Raid, Easter 1930:
#LestWeForgetIndia, a handful of teenagers brought the British Raj in the frontier district of Chittagong down to its knees.
Chittagong, was almost a liberated district for two years.

An almost forgotten part of history.
18 April 1930 onwards, The Easter Uprising which shook the His Majesty's Govt of India.
•The Post and Telegraph Office
•Armoury of Auxiliary Forces of India
•Police Lines
•European Club

Band of Brothers wrecked havoc to British Rule in Chittagong.
We don't know about Chittagong, because history books don't teach us what a handful of about 70 odd teenagers did to the might of the British Empire, taking a leaf out of Easter Uprising of Ireland.

P.s. Bollywood made a keema of the Raids.
