Twenty years ago, Amritsar was the stage for a bloody attack on Indian unity with consequences that still reverberate today.

Sikhs around the world remember it as their very own 9/11, their worst trauma in modern history, Operartion Blue Star, the storming of the Golden Temple in Amritsar.

It was a justified act to flush out militants, say the Indian authorities. But for many Sikhs it was a heinous defilement of their most sacred site, and the slaughter of hundreds of innocent pilgrims.

Why did it go so badly wrong? How did a separatist movement grow out of it? And how has it shaped Sikh identity all over the world to this day?
