The Khalra Mission Organisation has supported the construction of Operation Bluestar memorial at Harmandar Sahib in Amritsar by the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee.

Dalbir Singh, the patron of the organisation, said that building the memorial was necessary, as a way to spread information and knowledge about the incident.

"Constant opposition by various sections, particularly by the Congress are a signal of anti-minority mindset of these bodies," he said.

He rejected apprehensions that building the memorial might lead to revival of terrorism in the state.

He said that the Congress was unnecessarily opposing the construction citing irrational fears. He said that the chief minister Parkash Singh Badal must not bow to pressure and take concrete steps for the construction of the memorial.

He said that the Congress Punjab Youth president Vikramjit Chaudhary's announcement that he would protest against the construction of the memorial on June 20 was nothing more than a political stunt.
