By Suprity Acharyya


Amritsar; April 14, 1919: More than a thousand people killed and injured in an open fire by troops in Amritsar at Jallianwala Bagh. The Amritsar city was going under martial law since the last few weeks due to violent protests and riots against the Rowlatt Act and mass gathering was strictly prohibited by law.

The local people, mostly unaware of the martial law situation, gathered in Jallianwala Bagh to celebrate the Vaisakhi festival and to protest against the arrest of local leader Saifuddin Kitchlew and Satyapal under the Rowlatt Act.

As reports are coming out, general Reginald Dyer who is currently the officer-in-charge to maintain law and order in Punjab province approached the Jallianwala Bagh ground with 6 tankers and a large number of armed forces fired openly with no previous warning till they ran out of their ammunition.

As per the government report, the total death count in this incident is 379 but the Congress is accusing the government of hiding the real number of deaths and injuries. According to the Indian National Congress, the real death count may exceed a thousand people and more than 1500 is severely injured by this open fire.

While India is heavily shocked by this sudden incident. All national leaders as well as major political parties have sent their deep condolences to the families of dead people.

It was 13th of April 1919 when more than a thousand people were killed through an open fire ordered by a British general Reginald Dyer. The people who gathered in Jallianwala Bagh were completely unaware of the martial law situation going in contemporary Punjab.

They gathered to celebrate the Baisakhi festival and to protest peacefully against the heinous Rowlatt Act. It was a part of the Rowlatt Satyagraha declared by Gandhiji and the mass was completely unarmed. The British prime minister has said that this incident is a scar in the history between the relation of India and the United Kingdom.

She further said that Britain deeply regretted the incident. In reply to the prime minister, the leader of the opposition from the Labour party, Mr Jeremy Corbyn extended the call for a full, clear and unequivocal apology to India.

By Suprity Acharyya

New Delhi; April 15, 2019: On the 10th of this month the British prime minister Theresa May regretted the incident of 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre of Amritsar.

Just after 5 days of the regret message from the UK parliament, former Indian diplomat Mr Shashi Tharoor demanded a clear and unequivocal apology from the United Kingdom for the horrendous massacre that occurred during the British rule of India in the Punjab province.

In an interview to BBC Mr Tharoor has said that for about 200 years the British imperial power kept looting India and left the nation as one of the poorest in the world. He has further said that the British crown used to possess a tendency of hiding proper data in regard to every little aspect.

Here he pointed out the report of the Hunter Commission 1919 that it was highly misinterpreted the massacre occurred in Jallianwala Bagh. Then he said that Britain should apologize to India unequivocally for the Amritsar massacre instead of regretting it after a hundred years.

Thereafter the former diplomat Mr Shashi Tharoor also mentioned about the manipulation of data during the 1943 famine in Bengal.
