The Jallianwala Bagh massacre took place a hundred years ago, this day.

On 13 April 1919, troops of the British Indian Army under the command of Colonel Dyer fired rifles into a crowd, who had gathered for a peaceful protest at the #JallianwalaBagh in Amritsar.
#JallianwalaBaghMassacre Hundreds were killed from the firing. Many drowned as they jumped into a well. Official estimates of the dead vary from 300 to over 1,000.

100 years later, the British have still not formally apologized for this massacre.

I visited #JallianwalaBagh last year (photos in prev tweet).

It was a somber experience. 100 years later, standing in the garden, and walking through the narrow entrance passage, you could still visualize the horrific scenes there from April 13, 1919.

The story of Udham Singh, the little-known freedom fighter who avenged the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

21 years after the #JallianwalaBaghMassacre Udham Singh assassinated Michael O' Dwyer in London on 13 March 1940.
