Wow, this is hugely misleading and false. It didn't start with 2 Sikh factions in 1978 getting into a fight. It started with the government creating a cult and marching through the Sikh holy city with heavy armament. When Sikhs PEACEFULLY protested, the police shot down the crown with automatic fire. Any search on the net will find this. Secondly, Sikh freedom groups have always fought for freedom, justice and liberty and look to figures like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and others who won against oppressive regimes. When the Indian government decided that all Sikhs were terrorists and needed to be killed, is when these groups arose.
