In 1965, How Pakistan Army Favored Sikhs?

In 1965 War, Indians installed a radar station at the gurdwara to monitor the movement of Pakistan air force.

It was necessary to take down this radar station near gurdwara but there was risk of damaging the gurdwara.

Pakistan air force planned and decided to take down this radar station but at one condition, no harm done to the gurdwara, if the pilots realized their bombing would hit the gurdwara they should abort the mission.

Sri Harmandir Sahib also Sri Darbar Sahib  informally referred to as the Golden Temple, is the

holiest Gurdwara of Sikhism, located in the city of Amritsar, Punjab, India. Amritsar (literally, the tank of nectar of immortality) was founded in 1577 by the fourth Sikh guru, Guru Ram Das. The fifth Sikh Guru, Guru Arjan,

designed the Harmandir Sahib to be built in the centre of this holy tank, and upon its construction, installed the Adi Granth, the holy scripture of Sikhism, inside the Harmandir Sahib.

In 1965 War, Indians installed a radar station at the gurdwara to monitor the movement of Pakistan air force.

It was necessary to take down this radar station near gurdwara but there was risk of damaging the gurdwara.

Pakistan air force planned and decided to take down this radar station but at one condition, no harm done to the gurdwara, if the pilots realized their bombing would hit the gurdwara they should abort the mission.

As a result of it, one of Pakistani pilots got martyred.



That time, pakistan saved the gurdwara because its a sacred place for sikh nationalists.
