"The conflict taking place in the north-western Indian state Punjab saw the Indian government fighting a number of Sikh insurgent outfits aiming for the establishment of a Sikh state, Khalistan ("Land of the Pure"). The conflict became active in 1983 and throughout its duration displayed much violence, generating high death-tolls. Following large counterinsurgency-operations, the government pronounced the insurgency defeated in 1993."
