The Sikh Reference Library was a repository of over 1,500 rare manuscripts located in the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) at Amritsar, Punjab which was destroyed during Operation Blue Star. In 1984, the library's contents were confiscated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the empty building allegedly burned to the ground by the Indian Army. In recent years the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has attempted to recover the looted material but has not yet recovered substantial materials. To date, the status of library manuscripts and artifacts is unclear; the vast majority remain in the hands of the government, a few office files and passports were returned, and as many as 117 items were destroyed for being "seditious" materials.

  • The Sikh Reference Library was a repository of over 1,500 rare manuscripts located in the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) at Amritsar, Punjab which was destroyed during Operation Blue Star.

  • Сикхская справочная библиотека была хранилищем более 1500 редких рукописей, расположенных в Хармандир-Сахиб (Золотом храме) в Амритсаре, Пенджаб, который был разрушен во время операции «Голубая звезда». В 1984 году содержимое библиотеки было конфисковано Центральным бюро расследований (CBI), а пустое здание якобы сожжено дотла индийской армией. В последние годы Комитет Широмани Гурдвара Парбандхак (SGPC) пытался вернуть разграбленные материалы, но важные экспонаты так и не были найдены. На сегодняшний день статус библиотечных рукописей и артефактов неясен; подавляющее большинство из них остаётся в руках правительства, было возвращено несколько канцелярских файлов и паспортов, а целых 117 предметов были уничтожены как «крамольные» материалы.
