First know what was Operation Blue Star
Operation Blue Star was launched in 1984 on the orders of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to capture pro-Khalistan Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale. He was hiding in the Golden Temple in Amritsar. To capture him, the army entered the Golden Temple and Akal Takht Sahib on 6 June 1984 and killed Jarnail Singh.

The Golden Temple and Akal Takht Sahib were damaged in the operation. Due to this, there was a lot of anger among the Sikhs. Four months later, on 31 October 1984, two Sikh soldiers deployed for the security of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi shot and killed her. After this, anti-Sikh riots broke out in Delhi.

S Jaishankar said- Canada gave place to anti-India elements
In February this year, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had said that the biggest issue for India with Canada is that it gives shelter to terrorists, separatists and anti-India elements.

Jaishankar had said, “Canada says that in a democracy everyone has the right to express their views, but this does not mean that diplomats should be threatened. Throwing smoke bombs and resorting to violence at the embassy of any country is not freedom of expression.”
