“I just want to clarify and apologize for an Instagram post yesterday. It was a WhatsApp forwarding that I posted hastily and without even realizing the content used and what it meant and represented,” he said in an apology note posted on Twitter. .

“That was my mistake, I accept it, and at no time do I endorse the opinions in that post or support the people whose image was published. I am a Sikh who will fight for India and not against India.”
“This is my unconditional apology for hurting the feelings of my nation. In fact, any anti-national group against my people, I do not support it and I never will,” he added.
Operation Bluestar was an Army operation that was carried out in 1984 to drive the militants out of the Golden Temple in Amritsar.

Bhindranwale was the leader of that insurgent movement and was killed along with other people during the operation.
“I have given my blood and sweat for this country for 20 years and I will never support anything that is anti-India,” Harbhajan said.
How can a man say he loves India and then glorify a terrorist who killed thousands? How would Americans treat an athlete who says he loves America but thinks Osama is a martyr?
Bhajji’s record now leaves a sour taste. India was proud of your record because she was proud of you.
