The Jallianwala Bagh Massacre was a dreadful atrocity. On 13th April 1919, British troops were ordered to open fire on an unarmed crowd of thousands of people in Amritsar in a small enclosed space until ammunition was exhausted. At least 1,000 Innocent people were killed, with three to four times as many wounded. Bullets often penetrated multiple victims even when they were running away. Some of the crowd lay down and the troops were then ordered to fire downwards, or sideways to the direction of the fleeing crowd. This carried on for around 10 minutes. Little or no provisions were made for the wounded and some jumped into a well to avoid being shot.

This Saturday marks the 100 year anniversary of this tragic day. David Cameron stopped short of apologising for the event in 2013 when he visited the site in Amritsar, Punjab in India. This event particularly stands out in British History as a Dark Moment and has caused lasting pain to Indians, and British citizens with Indian Heritage. The Government should do the right thing and apologise for the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre.

It's also we demand from the Indian & Punjab Government to establish the Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial University in Amritsar in the remembrance of the Martyrs of 1919 Amritsar Massacre. We also demand from the Government of India to set up Memorial in Amritsar in the memory of 25 Citizens of Amritsar who were killed by the British Police on 10th April, 1919 during their attempt to cross the bridge to protest the arrest of Local Leaders Dr. Satpal & Saffudin Kitchlew. 

"Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial University in Amritsar and Separate Memorial in the remembrance of 25 Innocent Martyrs of 10th April, 1919 Incident will be the big tribute to the Martyrs on the 100 years centenary of Jallianwala Bagh.
