Demand for an apology for Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, Massacre 1919

The Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, Massacre 1919 Centenary Committee demands from the serving British Prime Minister, on behalf of all of us in Britain, a formal apology for the loss of life and silencing of a public protest in Jallianwala Bagh on 13th April 1919.

Why is this important?

The monstrous act by colonial rulers is embedded in the psyche of Indian People and inspired them to seek complete independence

In February 2013 2013 the Former Prime Minister, David Camron, visited Jallianwala Bagh adjacent to the Golden Temple, wrote in the visitor’s book,” This was a deeply shameful act in British history, one that Winston Churchill rightly described at the time as Monstrous. We demand this to be formally recorded in the House of Parliament.

A formal apology by the serving British Prime Minister will cost nothing while the effect on the people of Indian Diaspora will be off a historical Magnitude and will help to move forward.
