4th August


1982Gurbakash Singh tried to hijack Indian Airline plane to Lahore.
1982Dharam Yudh morcha to seek Sikh demands was launched by Akali Dal. Additionally, the morcha initiated by Jarnail Singh Bhindrawalae, for release of Amrik Singh was also included in this.
1987A convention was held in Amritsar. Despite risk to their lives at the hands of Indian police gangs, some Sikh leaders attanded the convention. The generals of the army of Khalistan, in this convention, confirmed their goal of total freedom from India.

Darshan Singh Ragi, chief Granthi of Sri Akal Takhat, tried to support the Hindu allies but he was snubbed by the Sikh generals. Some of his words were in complete contradiction to the Sikh fundamentals. As a result he, ipso facto, ceased to be the Granthi of Sri Akal Takhat. The Delhi regime tried to reinstate him, but the Sikh Nation with one voice, rejected the un-Sikh ideas and confirmed the goal of freedom for Khalsistan.

Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
