On June 6, 2004 the BBC News reported, "Sikhs from across the UK have gathered to mark the 20th anniversary of the storming of their holiest shrine. Communities and temples congregations met in central London to remember the Indian Army's storming of the Golden Temple of Amritsar. The temple, which lies at the centre of the faith, was the scene of fierce fighting in 1984 as India's government sought to destroy Sikh militants. British Sikhs say they still want the government to pressure India and the United Nations for a full investigation into the events."
